TRYING THE NEW VEGAN FAST FOOD RELEASES

If you’re not familiar with veganuary, it’s a challenge set by a nonprofit organisation that encourages people to go vegan for the month of January. This year, fast food companies have jumped on the hype and released vegan specials on their menu. I decided to test a few of them out and give you my verdict before you potentially waste your coin.

This was the first vegan fast food release that I tried and it did not disappoint. It tasted exactly like chicken, I had to double-check that they’d given me the correct thing. It was a bit dry and I think it could’ve been fried for a few seconds less but other than that, delicious. If you prefer juicy burgers, I’d recommend adding some extra mayo, ketchup, bbq sauce and a sprinkle of salt. 

Up next, the meatless mariana. I forgot to take a photo before tucking in, oops. I used to love the meatball Mariana, back when I ate meat, so I was eager to try this meatless version. It was alright but the vegan cheese had a weird taste. I’ll be honest, it was disgusting and slightly ruined the sub, but the meatballs and sauce were delicious! It’s a shame the vegan cheese left an after taste meaning I didn’t get to enjoy the sub as much as I wanted to. In future, I’ll either have it without the vegan cheese or get regular cheese instead.

Last but not least, the vegan steak bake. You know when you go to Greggs and you get given a bake that's been sat on the display shelves for most of the day? I got lucky, a new batch of the vegan steak bake has been put out. It looked the same as a steak bake and tasted similar but not the same, the Quorn wasn't rubbery like steak can be, it was tender and combined with the onions and gravy? *chefs kiss*

Are you doing veganuary?
