Taco Bell is the latest fast-food chain to jump into the pool of plant-based products and substitutes, making a lot of vegan and vegetarian customers very happy.

People who don’t eat meat have still enjoyed some of Taco Bell’s foods, as the chain has offered refried beans and black beans as an alternative to meat for a long time. But now, they are taking the official step towards a more plant-based-friendly menu by testing out a meat substitute in their Detroit locations. 

They are also creating a special Cravetarian menu, their new plant-based menu that will feature this vegan meat substitute alongside other vegan favorites, like Nachos BellGrande, Burrito Supreme, Crunchwrap Supreme, and Crunchy Taco Supreme.

They will be testing out this new menu in select Detroit locations until November the 10th. If it goes over well, hopefully, they will plan to expand this option to all locations.

This is great news for vegans everywhere as many have access to a Taco Bell, making tasty vegan options even more accessible than before.
