It’s called the Cravetarian Taco, a temporary menu item that includes a “boldly seasoned plant-based protein” made from peas and chickpeas. It’s loaded with cheddar cheese, lettuce, diced tomatoes, reduced-fat sour cream and served on a crunchy corn shell.
However, it’s only being sold at one Taco Bell location, in Orange County, California, until April 29 for $2.19.
Taco Bell said that its meat alternative is vegan and the term “Cravetarian” emphasizes that “no one should have to sacrifice bold flavors for their lifestyle.”
“By testing and offering a wide breadth of meatless options, Taco Bell doubles down on its pledge to bring more innovation to the vegetarian space,” the Yum Brands-owned company said in a statement. “Fans who are vegetarians, veggie-curious and meat-eaters will be bound to find their next plant-based obsession.”
