Hear ye, hear ye — the day has come, Taco Bell's vegetarian menu has arrived. Well, if you're lucky enough to be in Dallas, it will start testing on Thursday, April 4 in the Dallas marketplace. Taco Bell's veggie menu is a long-awaited development from the company, after it announced plans for a veggie menu as part of its 2019 commitments. "Did you know that we have more than 8 million vegetarian combinations on our menu?" the company explained in a blog post. "That’s enough to customize a new meal every day for nearly 20,000 years." There's a reason it already has a huge following among vegetarians — and Taco Bell decided to make a more straightforward way for veggies and vegans to get what they want.
Starting on April 4, Taco Bell will test its American Vegetarian Association-certified (AVA) vegetarian menu in the Dallas, Texas marketplace. Featuring a Vegetarian Quesarito, aVegetarian Crunchwrap Supreme, and a Vegetarian 7-Layer Burrito, there's a lot to choose from. If you're in Dallas, you owe it to us veggies elsewhere to go, to try, to feast.
“The trend of plant-forward eating is here to stay and is reaching ubiquity in the fast food space, so we’re constantly innovating to find ways to incorporate more plant-forward options," Missy Schaaphok, RDN, Taco Bell's manager of global nutrition and sustainability told Forbes. "This new menu will make it even easier for customers to opt for meatless items."
