Taco Bell reports that the protein comes in at 180 calories, compared to the 190 calories in the Crunchy Taco Supreme. The protein is vegan and can be swapped into chalupas, burritos, and other offerings.
“The term ‘Cravetarian’ is inspired by all of Taco Bell’s craveable options and it emphasizes how no one should have to sacrifice bold flavors for their lifestyle,” Taco Bell said in a statement.
Offered at a single location to start in Tustin, California, it sells for $2.19. The company brought potatoes back to its menu after protests from vegan and vegetarian consumers. The company is planning a meatless option partnership with Beyond Meat, according to Business Insider.
