Sweet Earth Shredded Seasoned Chik'n: Shredded plant-based chik'n tossed in a classic carnitas-style marinade.
Sweet Earth Seasoned Chipotle Chik'n Strips: Plant-based chik'n strips tossed in a saucy chipotle marinade.

New varieties will be available in early April 2021 at stores across the country, including Whole Foods, Meijer, HEB, Ahold, Sprouts and other grocers.
Sara Wheeler, Sweet Earth general manager, said, "Sweet Earth has always made it a priority to innovate and develop new, delicious plant-based foods that people can enjoy at a variety of occasions. We're eager to meet the growing consumer demand for quick and flavorful plant-based alternatives. This expansion of Sweet Earth's popular Mindful Chik'n line builds on our legacy of leading with variety."
Wheeler added, "Given the rise of consumers cooking from home this past year, and their craving for new twists to recipes they know and love, the chik'n options are a key way for flexitarians incorporate plant-based options into their at-home cooking. These latest products are really versatile, in that they can be incorporated hot or cold into a variety of meals, including salads and appetizers, pasta, pizzas, rice bowls and sandwiches."
