How does a takeaway which leaves no waste behind sound?
That's just what Alpro are offering, following the launch of their 'Plant-Based Bucket' - otherwise known as the 'PBB'.
The PBB is a plant-based vegan twist on the more traditional chicken and chips meal deal. This alternative comes with mushroom 'nuggets' (yes please), sweet potato fries (again, yes please) and a creamy garlic dip (is there a better dip?), and is in packaging that is made from a secret combination of nuts, seeds and spices.
Launching in London and Manchester on Plant Power Day (7th March), the PBB will be available for delivery straight to your door via Deliveroo Editions. Costing £5 (and that also includes delivery), customers will also avoid creating the usual waste which comes with the traditional bucket/packaging at the end of their meal - instead, they can just eat it!
"We’re launching ‘PBB’ to show the nation what’s possible using the amazing power of plants," says Stephanie Balsom-Eynon, head of Plant Power and chief ‘bucket’ taster at Alpro.
"We’ve used a tasty mix of mushrooms and Alpro Almond Unsweetened drink to make the ‘nuggets’, and the sweet potato fries are the perfect blend of fluffy and crispy," Balsom-Eynon added.
"The bucket has a crunchy base made using a tasty mix of fennel seeds, nigella seeds, sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds – meaning it’s sort of like a crispbread. It’s deliciously moreish, and really is good enough to eat; especially when paired with the Alpro-based creamy garlic dip."
"We’ve always said that the future of food is plant-based, because this way of eating is good for people, and good for the planet."
