Currently, they have two flavours: Ned’s Spicy Chipotle & Judas’ Original. The zip up bag, encourages you to have several little snackette and reseal. Tremendously chewy and flavour rammed. Judas’ has a BBQ-black pepper flavouring and Ned’s strips taste smokey and have a nice kick from chipotle and ancho chillies.
They would be a great snack for people transitioning to a plant-based diet, or those supporting Meatless Monday If your doctor is telling you to cut or quit the meat, it can be a little scary. These would be great for you!
I wanted to know more about Stanley, the founder and genius behind Morels The Vegan Butcher. I contacted him and asked a few questions to placate my curiosity. He was happy to oblige.
Morels the Vegan Butcher is quite the newbie to the food game. They launched in 2011, funding by the aid of pledgers on Kickstarter.com. They hit the streets of Louisville Kentucky with a big shiny food truck. At the same time they began to sell retail sandwiches in local grocery stores and coffee shops. The demand grew really quickly in the stores and eventually they were forced to give up the food truck to keep up with demand from their retail customers. It seems vegan food was what the people (vegans, non-vegans and veg-curious alike) of Louisville wanted in their stores. If you live in Louisville, you are lucky and get to buy their in Rainbow Blossoms & Heine Brothers Coffee shops all over Louisville!. For those of use who don’t. You can get the flavour of Morels The Vegan Butcher in a foil zip-lock bag, online and at these locations. They ship internationally.
Morel TVB: quote “Ever since meat was taken out of my diet, I’ve thought often about jerky. Texture, taste and a sore jaw have been a dream of mine for years. Finally, here we are. A real jerky that you can pull out at a party and make real, lasting friends. So pop open a bag. Tap a stranger on the shoulder and say, “jerky?’. No one will ask any questions”.
So Stanley, what came first? The Jerky or your wraps? (the wraps so amazing! Wish I could try them!)
We started the wraps about 2 years ago. The jerky came out almost exactly a year ago. After only 6 months Jerky was flying off the ‘shelves’.
How long did it take you to perfect the Jerky recipes?
I’ve been vegan off and on over the last 7 years or so, but vegetarian for the whole time. There’s not really any thing that I can’t live without, I just haven’t drawn the line that I’m vegan. I don’t really talk much about it with anyone though as I think people are all at their own spots in life. Be it food, spirituality or whatever, even if you feel you’ve connected all the dots, we all see the world in our own special ways. That being said, I really like vegan cheeses and products like vegenaise and earth balance are always in my fridge. I really love dr. Cows cashew cheese [AVO: ‘ooh, want to try that now’!]
I am loving the fact the old concept of ‘business’ is turning, and more and more AWESOME people like our friend Stanley are changing the face of entrepreneurism. Ethical businesses rock!
