I want to marry Taco Bell

In the United States, Taco Bell appears to be the only fast food restaurant that is genuinely and sweetly courting us vegetarians and vegans!

Taco Bell's own YouTube channel has a video on how to order vegetarian at Taco Bell!




And - am I dreaming? - here is a quote from Taco Bell's website:

Quote:
Being a vegetarian is hard. You typically have to double check the ingredients before you eat anything, people assume because you’re vegetarian you’re judging everyone else and their lifestyle and when you go out to eat, options are limited. There are so many restaurants you just can’t eat at, and generally fast food isn’t even an option. Until Taco Bell.

Taco Bell is the first quick service restaurant to offer American Vegetarian Association (AVA) certified food options. The AVA defines vegetarian as lacto-ovo, allowing the consumption of dairy and eggs but not any animal by-products.

Taco Bell has 5.7 million vegetarian combinations, sells 350 million vegetarian items a year and about seven percent of all items ordered at Taco Bell are either vegetarian-friendly or made vegetarian-friendly by substitution or removal. Our menu items can be modified however you like at the restaurant, online at Ta.co or through the Taco Bell mobile app.

I am 100% that food is tainted with animal grease.

It is like you when order fries as a fast food joint, which is also where they fry their nuggets.

Actually if you follow the link they address that. It's why the Spicy Potato soft taco isn't vegetarian certified, but their items that they claim are vegetarian are honestly vegetarian.

I think it's good to show support for these kinds of changes which overall will lead to a reduction of animal suffering and eventually a more vegan world. Of course, that doesn't have to mean that you have to eat there.

But if every time someone announces a new vegetarian option vegans are commenting about animal fat or some minor ingredient that this will set back the movement to reduce animal suffering since it makes it harder for the companies to make changes and so some won't bother.

By the way David, that wasn't the title of an article I was expecting from you, or anyone! Did not see it coming.

I feel exactly the same way. I think it's great when mainstream restaurants make an effort to support us veg*ns, even though they're really just taking baby steps. But as I learned as I was recovering from illness, sometimes baby steps are HUGE! They lead to bigger and better things, and you have to start SOMEWHERE. Good for Taco Bell for making it easier on us. I must admit it's been many years since I've patronized TB, but now...who knows?!
