Other new options on the menu – which is believed to be launching on January 2 – include a vegan strawberry croissant and a bean chili and rice.
“We know from our audience that vegans want to see meat and cheese alternatives on the high street, so we believe that Costa have made a step in the right direction,” Liam Day, co-founder of Vegan Food UK, told Plant Based News.
The new dishes join current plant-based offerings, which include two types of soup, a chocolate, caramel and hazelnut cookie, and a bean and butternut wrap.
