Sandwich chain Subway is adding vegan chicken to its menu, according to Vegan Food UK. 

Vegan Food UK is an online organization sharing vegan food news, reviews, vlogs, and more. It operates across multiple social media platforms, with a Facebook groupFacebook pageYouTube channel, and Instagram account.

It says the Tastes Like Chicken (T.L.C) sub will hit stores on December 30, alongside its vegan double chocolate chip cookie that was trialed earlier this year.

‘The full roll-out’

“The new vegan Sub will be called the TLC, and from the picture, it looks like a roasted type of plant-based chicken,” Vegan Food UK wrote on Instagram.

“The Chocolate Cookie has been on trial at select locations and looks like it’s going for the full roll-out for Veganuary 2020.”

Tastes Like Chicken

Earlier this year, Subway trialed its TLC sub in eight outlets in Dubai – with a formal launch expected across the UAE next year.

It also launched a ‘Vegan Balls’ sandwich featuring marinara sauce, rocket, and plant-based ‘meat balls’. 

However, according to Gulf News, the TLC n Dubai consists of a breaded chicken patty which contains egg in its coating and is therefore unsuitable for vegans.
