Taco Bell: Bring Daiya Non-Dairy Cheese to Taco Bell

Taco Bell is a great fast food chain. For 42 years Americans have lived and died by their food and many a college student would fight a war to preserve their freedom to find ridiculously delicious food at 2am. But even the best fall short sometimes.

Most vegans recognize Taco Bell as being one of the most delicious and veganizable fast food chains in the game right now. Options like “sub beans for meat”, “minus sour cream”, and “add potatoes” are true proof of a ghost in the the teleprompting drive through machine and a god amongst menus. But let’s talk about another valuable tool in Taco Bell’s food-altering command arsenal - “minus cheese”. We’ve all spoken this phrase more times than we’ll ever know, but what if there was an alternative? What if instead of completely doing away with cheese, Taco Bell offered customers a chance to switch over to try something new?

Daiya Foods’ cheddar and mozzarella style shreds (not to menion all of their other products) have proved themselves time and again in both the retail grocery market and on the wholesale restaurant-supply side. 100% plant-based with a proven ability to melt and blend as well as any dairy counterpart, Daiya is almost every dairy-forgoer’s top cheese choice and an obvious solution to our problem here.

Daiya is 100%

  • Vegan
  • Dairy Free
  • Lactose Free
  • Soy Free
  • Nut Free
  • Gluten Free, and
  • Kosher

meaning that not only would this menu addition impact Taco Bell’s relationship with the vegan consumer market, but would also mesh well with many other consumer needs and help boost them over other fast food heavyweights that we all already know are inferior anyways, like McDonald’s or Panera (honestly why do people eat at either of these two places).

The change would be simple, requiring only an added button on the order keypad. As briefly mentioned earlier, Daiya is already set up for wholesale restaurant distribution and can be phased into franchise’s existing stock orders almost immediately. We, the fourthmealing, crunchwrapping vegans (and other people who enjoy Daiya) of the United States and beyond sign here to encourage you to take this small step for your inventory and a giant leap for mankind’s stokedness on fast food burritos by being the largest fast food chain in the country (if not the world) to include this vegan cheese as a substitution option on your menus. We hope you do the right thing.

First off, i love your blog, iv not long started being vegan, i was vegetarian for 5 years before but me and my girlfriend decided the only logical step was to go vegan, only problem is, i love cheese and chocolate, i can get vegan chocolate from my local market but no vegan cheese, i was wondering if you knew what brands of vegan cheese there were and where i would be able to get some without breaking the bank (bare in mind i live in wales in the uk) thank you so much for the advice and blog

Hi there! Thank you so much! :)

I’m working on the dairy substitutes post but I will give you the cheese substitutes I have so far. Each one has a link to their websites, so you’ll see if those are available where you live. I really hope this can help you and your girlfriend with the transition. ;)
