Nacho Fries are already in stock at Taco Bell locations nationwide, with the Vegan Nacho Sauce soon to follow. The Vegan Nacho Sauce is expected to debut on October 12, selling alongside the fries at $2.19 per order, with the larger size clocking in at $2.99. The price for Nacho Fries with the new Vegan Nacho Sauce is the same as the original cheese sauce, which is still available for those who prefer the dairy-based dip.
According to a September 28 press release, the vegan cheese sauce has been certified by the American Vegetarian Association to have no traces of cheese or other animal-made products, making the item the first of its kind for Taco Bell.
The chain has expressed interest in venturing into the vegan market in the past, even experimenting with a Vegan Crunchwrap back in June, though that item was only available in select markets across Los Angeles, Orlando, and New York City. While there’s no word on Taco Bell’s future with vegan options, it’s clear the chain is making an effort to appeal to its ever-growing base of vegan consumers.
