Don't worry Kickstarter Potato Salad project haters, you don't need to fund even an ounce of mayonnaise to make a difference on the crowd-funding website.
Who knew? There are vegan products we long for (ie, meringue), and vegan products we never would have thought of in a million years. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you raw coconut jerky! Made from coconut meat in flavors like spicy chili lime and ginger teriyaki, Brooklyn-based CocoBurg just launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the business.
As every vegetarian, vegan, and raw foodist on the planet knows, the current meat substitute scene has been grim for decades. Though some decent tasting options exist, no one has yet managed to produce a product that tastes great and whose ingredients list doesn't give you a headache. And if you're trying to avoid soy or wheat gluten, you simply have no options in the fake meat world.
