Whether you're planning on trying the new Garden Dog, plain Jane, or dragged through the garden, one thing's for sure, hold the ketchup.
Yellowstone National Park is known for an abundance of wildlife and its many geothermal features, including its most popular, the Old Faithful geyser. And now, they're partnering with Chicago-based company, Nature's Fynd, to offer plant-based foods that are made from microbes found in the park's own hot springs. Meatless Maple Breakfast Patties made with Fy protein will be on the breakfast menu at the park's seven lodges. And several more of the company's products will be available for purchase at the park's general stores.
Food tech company, NotCo, has been a leader in innovation with its AI technology. And now, they're teaming with Shake Shack to give the restaurant's sweet treats a plant-based twist. As NotCo's first venture into food service in the United States, the two are launching non-dairy chocolate shakes and chocolate frozen custard, yum, at 10 select locations in New York City and Florida.
The new products will only be available for a limited time. So don't wait too long to get your hands on one of these delicious dairy-free shakes. From Talking Plant Protein, I'm Joey Thurman And those are this week's trending topics.
