Last year, we shared the news about Subway’s vegan test menu in eight DC-area locations that was so popular, stores ran out of the vegan patties within a few short weeks. Several of the restaurant managers told us the vegan menu was tremendously successful, and they’ve been eager to satisfy customer demand by putting heartier and healthier plant-based option back on the menu.

Earlier this year, Chipotle added vegan sofritas to its menus in California, and it’s so popular it already accounts for 5 percent of sales. The company says about one-third of Sofrita eaters are not vegan but rather consumers trying to eat less meat. This shift towards more plant-based foods is further reflected in a recent survey showing that one-third of Americans are buying veggie meats, the majority of whom are not vegan or vegetarian.

Knott's Berry FarmAs a Southern California native, I grew up going to Knott’s Berry Farm, a quaint amusement park that boasted Snoopy as its mascot, stomach-dropping roller coasters, a Halloween-themed fright fest, a wild west-era Ghost Town, and of course, delicious, albeit unhealthy carnival snacks such as funnel cake and buttered popcorn. Though it’s been a while since I’ve visited, I now have an excuse to go back: all those foods associated with my childhood memories have now been veganized!
