Nickelodeon has partnered with Akua, the maker of the first-ever kelp burger, to bring the joy of SpongeBob SquarePants’ culinary skills to young fans.
They are combing the sea to find food alternatives for the future. Behold, kelp jerky from upstart company Akua, they claim that their kelp is 100% vegan. Kelp (Saccharina latissima) is one of the fastest-growing plants on the planet. It contains vitamins A, B1, B2, C, D and E, and is a source of calcium, as well as copper, iodine, iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc. The kelp snack comes in three flavors: sea salt and sesame with hints of nori, “High Thai’d” (geddit?) with tumeric and coconut, and rosemary “BBQ” with a touch of maple.
