Subway will add vegan chicken to its plant-based offerings in time for Veganuary, Plant Based News can reveal. 

The sandwich chain will debut its T.L.C (Tastes Like Chicken) Sub and a Vegan Double Choc Cookie in UK stores on December 30. 

According to the brand, its T.L.C. Sub is ‘packed with all the delicious flavor of the original, made with a bespoke recipe designed to mimic roast chicken breast strips’. 

The T.L.C is fully customizable and is available as a six-inch or Footlong Sub, a salad, or a wrap. The Vegan Double Choc Cookie, which was trialed in certain outlets earlier this year, can be ordered as a single cookie, as part of a pack of three, or the 12 cookie sharing box.

‘Delight both vegan and non-vegans’

In a statement sent to PBN, Angelina Gosal, Head of Marketing UK & Ireland at Subway said: “Our new plant-based T.L.C. Sub will delight both our vegan and non-vegan fans – we’ve created a product that tastes so much like our flavor-full chicken breast strips, guests will be surprised it’s not the real thing. 

“With our new additions, we now have one of the biggest and tastiest plant-based menus on the high street, to offer you even more choice.”

Vegan Subway options

The two new products will join Subway’s current plant-based offerings, which include its award-winning Meatless Meatball Marinara.

Other vegan options include the Plant-Based Patty – which can be served as a sandwich, wrap, or in a salad, as well as Vegan Toasted Bites, and Hash Browns.
