Taco Bell announced today that it will be testing a new plant-based menu item called the “Cravetarian” taco at one select location in Tustin, California, from now through April 29, 2021, or while supplies last.
The Cravetarian taco features an all-new plant-based protein made from a pea/chickpea blend, and just like the original Crunchy Taco Supreme, it also includes shredded cheddar cheese, crisp lettuce, diced tomatoes, and reduced-fat sour cream, all stuffed in a crunchy corn shell.
Taco Bell’s new meat alternative is AVA-certified vegan, which means that customers who want to try more plant-based foods can customize almost every item on the menu to be vegan
Customers can also add or swap the new, boldly seasoned plant-based protein in their favorite menu items from chalupas to burritos and everything in between.
The Cravetarian Taco comes out to about 180 calories and carries a suggested price of $2.19. It’s also worth noting that substituting the seasoned plant-based protein will be offered at no extra cost during the test period.
The new plant-based protein will be available at the Taco Bell restaurant located at 14042 Red Hill Ave., Tustin, California until April 29.
