Veganism is not a new trend. For years, people have been asking for healthier and more sustainable options at chains and restaurants across the country, but it seems like companies are finally starting to listen. Many vegan cafes and restaurants have been popping up across the country, and it looks like Taco Bell might be getting in on the action.
An anonymous source at Taco Bell headquarters has stated that there will be a nationwide rollout of new vegan options which will begin in 2023. Get ready for vegan tacos, burritos, quesadillas, nachos, chips with salsa, and more!
A source who wished to remain anonymous close to Taco Bell headquarters stated that “What makes these vegan items so popular is that they have the same rich flavors as all of our meaty and cheesy foods, but without any guilt. All vegan items will be a part of a brand new ‘M cruelty-free section on Taco Bell’s menu.”
Taco Bell is updating its menu with vegan-friendly ingredients in an attempt to meet the demands of everyone who has ever thought about going meatless or dairy-free in an attempt to be healthier.

About Taco Bell
Taco Bell’s goal is to provide a satisfying, customizable Mexican-style food experience. To do that, the company has been working on a new system – Taco Bell 2020 – which allows ingredients from around the world to be prepped at reasonable prices by those who know how best to prepare them.
It was founded in 1952 by Glen Bell, who sold the first taco for US$0.19 each at a store in California. Since then, Taco Bell has spread to become one of the most well-known Mexican-style fast-food restaurants across the world. Whether it’s Baja Blast Freeze drinks or Cheesy Gordita Crunches, there is something for everyone at Taco Bell.
Taco Bell 2020 has already started rolling out to many locations in the US, and it’s expected to be completed by 2023 when newly-discovered ingredients are brought into play. It promises to provide fresher food with no compromises on taste.
Taco Bell has recently started rolling out vegan options to its menu. These options include the Black Bean Crunchwrap, Nacho Fries, and 7-Layer Burrito in some locations. New vegan ingredients are expected to be rolled across the US by 2025. Vegan food is said to taste like non-vegan food, but there may be a weird aftertaste for some people.
Taco Bell’s menu has evolved ever since it was founded in 1952 by Glen Bell. As tastes change, so does Taco Bell – and that’s what keeps people coming back.
One of the first vegan items on the new menu will be a Mexican pizza. The chain has been testing out this new item for over a month now, and it seems to have been very successful. A second similar item that is expected to be available by 2023 is a nachos bell grande. A source close to Taco Bell headquarters stated that “It’s a very rich and creamy chip, with melted vegan cheese on top of crunchy chips. The nacho cheese sauce is made from cashews so it has a slightly sweet taste-it’s guilt-free!”
Another item that was announced was the chalupa. This new item is made with a fried coconut tortilla that contains spicy, tender chunks of vegan meat. Toppings include lettuce, tomato, avocado slices, jalapeño peppers, and an incredibly delicious cashew cream sauce. According to Taco Bell headquarters this product “has been selling like hotcakes!”
The last common menu item which will be available at least by 2023 is a Mexican chocolate brownie. It’s made with cocoa powder, cinnamon, and other traditional Mexican flavors. Other options include:
