Taco Bell has long been a favorite restaurant of vegetarians, and for good reason: Its food is inexpensive, flavorful, and literally full of beans. The seasoned legumes are a regular protein option, which means customers can fully enjoy a real Taco Bell experience without eating animals. Vegans can do fine, too: They just need to order their food without cheese or sour cream.
Indeed, the company says that 23% of all the items it sells are vegetarian.
So it stands to reason that the Irvine, Calif.-based company would develop its own plant-based protein, and indeed it has, and it’s testing the Vegan Crunchwrap at three locations this week.
