"Veggie Mode" makes ordering plant-based at Taco Bell even easier
Taco Bell thinks people should be given more options than one plant-based choice
Ordering a veggie or vegan meal at Taco Bell isn’t exactly tricky. You can have beans instead of beef, replace chicken for potatoes, skip the sour cream. The company also recently announced it’s hoping to launch plant-based meat by the end of this year.
But now Taco Bell is making ordering vegetarian even easier with the launch of its new ‘Veggie Mode’.
With a single swipe on Taco Bell’s self-service ordering kiosks, you’ll see only vegetarian items on the menu. That adds up to an impressive 50 veggie items.
Alongside the launch of Veggie Mode, the restaurant has also just expanded the number of certified vegetarian ingredients on the menu, so it now includes fan faves like Potato Bites, Chalupa shells and Hash Browns.
While you’re in Veggie Mode, there’s a total of more than 20 million possible veggie menu combos — apparently that’s enough to customize a new meal every day for more than 50,000 years (thanks for that random fact, Taco Bell).
Veggie Mode unlocks new versions of classic Taco Bell menu items, including these…
—Beefy 5-Layer Burrito to a Layered Vegetarian Burrito
—Chalupa Supreme to a Black Bean Chalupa Supreme
—Chicken Soft Taco to a Black Bean Soft Taco
“We’ve been doing vegetarian for a long time, but that is not enough for us. People should be given more options than one plant-based choice,” said Missy Schaaphok, RDN, Taco Bell’s Global Nutrition & Sustainability Manager. “At Taco Bell, celebrating vegetarian is more than just a trend, it is something we do every day of the week. With Veggie Mode, we are proud to make it even easier to order plant-based options that vegetarians and non-vegetarians can agree are delicious.”
Veggie Mode will be available from March 12.
