Sorry Michael but I must repeat this here since you have plugged taco bell.

PLEASE BOYCOTT all Yum Brandz stores, which includes taco bell, pizza hut and KFC, as there is currently a campaign against this chain.

I am part of this campaign, as is some other ar people on this board. Please boycott them if for no other reason, out of respect for your fellow vegan friends and their efforts.

Honestly, it is frustrating enough trying to convince meat eating trolls to boycott these places, but on top of that to convince vegans to boycott them is so disheartening. :cry:

thanks.

well, the bastards at KFC that are refusing to improve the conditions of heir animals (even so minutely) are the same bastards that own these other places.

thanks for your inquiry. :D

I thought you must have missed this thread CG. I knew you would get around to the boycott sooner or later. :D

Chipotle has awesome burritos, rice, black beans, guacamole!!!

Wendy's has baked potatos, unfortunately no vegan margarine. Ketchup will do in a pinch.

I mostly avoid fast food, so that's all I have.

I have always wondered if Taco Bell uses lard in their beans, and have avoided them because of that....do they not?
Chipotle is the only place I go, it's yum! I love a naked burrito with beans, rice, lettuce, lots of really hot salsa, and guacamole. They're huge too.
Unfortunately the company is owned by McDonald's, and I don't really like to support McDonald's with my money.
I do think they were being sold off though, not sure....
Anyways, when in doubt, most fast food places have salads now. It can be hard to find one that doesn't have cheese, egg, or meat on the top, but usually there's at least one option, and then you just have to track down a dressing.


I went to a place for the first time this weekend that seems to be popping up around here called Qdoba. It is like Chipolte (which we don't have out here) AND their guac is non-dairy (a big YAY)! Check it out if there's one near you. I don't know who they're owned by, but it might be another option. They had a few veggie-type options AND the staff was really helpful (at the one I went to, anyway). :)

It's Double Rainbow brand soy ice cream! The mint chocolate chip is awesome! They also have a cherry chip kind and a carmel/cinnamon swirl which I've heard good things about, but I tried it and remembered that I hate carmel. The cherry is good, too. :)

I'd like to point out at this point that unless you're from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland or Delaware, we probably sound nuts talking about a place called "Wawa".

OMG!!!! I love Double Rainbow, they make THE BEST soy ice cream. I usually only get it at Trader Joe's when I'm in DC. I'm going to check the local WAWA, but something tells me that here in the south, they have no soy ice cream. Hm, that's actually worth a little drive after work to see if they have it. Did I mention I LOVE DOUBLE RAINBOW!!! :D

I'd like to point out at this point that I AM from Pennsylvania and I still think you sound nuts talking about a place called "Wawa". :wink:
