A Delicious New Holiday You Can Garnish: National Veggie Burger Day
Petaluma, California and Rohnert Park, California, June 1, 2016 – Amy’s Kitchen and Amy’s Drive Thru announced today that they will kick off a newly established food holiday this year on June 5, 2016: National Veggie Burger Day.
“We’re encouraging everyone to enjoy their favorite veggie burger on June 5,” said Paul Shiefer, Amy’s Director of Restaurants.
Amy’s supports a nationwide celebration of all kinds of veggie burgers and has invited any and all other veggie-burger making companies--as well as home cooks--to celebrate plant-based burgers and the positive impact they have on our planet. Hilary’s Eat Well, Big Mountain Organic, Quorn, Field Roast, Dominex Angel Burgers and GoGo Quinoa will all be joining in the campaign.
Amy’s and Amy’s Drive Thru, the one year-old organic/vegetarian fast food restaurant, will celebrate this new holiday with their customers and fans by kicking off a host of social media activities and a day-of event at Amy’s Drive Thru. Amy’s Ultimate Veggie Burger Grilling Packs will be among the prizes, as well as a BOGO veggie burger deal given away via a secret password on @AmysDriveThru social media channels.
From Amy’s Social Team: “We invite veggie burger lovers everywhere to join the #veggieburgerday fun on social media. Share in the love, fire up the grill, and post your veggie burger pics. Tag your posts with #veggieburgerday so Amy’s can follow along and engage. We hope to make more noise than #nationalburgerday.” For companies who wish to get involved, please contact email@example.com.

Meet Amy’s Hottest New Frozen Treat: Organic Vegan Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert
Santa Rosa, California – Amy's, the nation's top-selling brand of organic convenience foods now celebrating its 25th anniversary, is launching a brand new frozen food category, Amy’s Organic Non-Dairy Frozen Desserts. Amy’s has found a way to make a frozen, certified vegan dessert that has the luscious, velvety texture and flavor of super- premium dairy ice cream but none of the milk or eggs in its ingredients.
All four new flavors – dark Chocolate, creamy Vanilla with real vanilla bean, refreshing Mint Chocolate Chip and rich Mocha Chocolate Chip – are made with healthful, cholesterol-free organic coconut milk. Amy’s proprietary technique combined with high-quality, organic ingredients, keeps the coconut flavor in the background, resulting in a sumptuous frozen creation that will fool even traditional dairy ice cream fans.
“We are so excited to bring this vegan-certified treat to our customers that we can’t stop smiling,” says company co-founder Rachel Berliner (Amy's mom). “We know our fans will be pleased with this playful indulgence we've made for them.”
Amy's Non-Dairy Frozen Desserts (SRP: $6.99/pint) will be ready for retail purchase just in time for the warmest days of summer and early fall. Made with organic coconut milk and sweetened with agave syrup, the new desserts are vegan certified, organic, non-GMO, non-dairy, gluten free, and Kosher Pareve. The new line is made with the same care, quality and love for which Amy's foods are known.
What inspired Amy's to make a non-dairy frozen dessert? Amy's cousin Anna tried an extraordinary non-dairy frozen dessert at a vegan restaurant called Plant in North Carolina. Anna's husband, a conventional ice cream fan, couldn't believe the dessert was non-dairy. The two were so blown away by the recipe that they enlisted Amy's to bring this amazing dessert discovery to a wider audience. Thanks to Plant, Amy's now has four remarkable non-dairy desserts.
Amy's non-dairy frozen dessert makes a great complement to Amy's other frozen offerings. Try scooping this creamy new treat over Amy's Organic Gluten Free Brownies or Amy’s Organic Apple Pie. Or sandwich it between slices of Amy’s Organic Gluten Free Non Dairy Chocolate Cake for the ultimate vegan frozen dessert sammie. Just for fun, try scooping it into cones at a party and see who you can fool into thinking it's regular ice cream!
