Costa Coffee Adds New Vegan Option to Menu
UPDATE: Costa Coffee added a vegan Jam Oaty Bake (pictured below) to its menus in March, and has now included a new vegan option for its summer menu.
Plymouth Herald describes the Chipotle Bean & Butternut Squash Wrap, the newest addition to the UK-based coffee chain’s menu:
“A soft wrap filled with a sweet and smoky chipotle chilli relish, roasted butternut squash, fresh spinach leaves and red onion with sweetcorn, black turtle beans and chopped coriander, it’s a Mexican flavour explosion. Better still, it’s less than 300 calories.”
The article notes that the wrap is not only vegan, but gluten-free as well.
Marketing director at Costa Coffee Eric Tavoukdjian states:
“We’ve taken inspiration from around the world and catered to a variety of dietary requirements including vegan and vegetarian, to ensure there really is something for everyone to enjoy this summer – all perfectly paired with our cold coffee offering.”
February 4, 2018: UK coffeehouse chain Costa Coffee is in the process of adding new vegan items to its menu.
Vegan Food & Living notes that options at the coffee shop are currently “reasonably limited” with a “tomato and basil soup” and a “range of vegan-friendly drinks and snacks.” However:
“Costa are adding some new vegan options to the menu over the coming months, including a Jam Oaty Bake (available in stores from March) and a tasty Three Bean Wrap (available in May).”
Animal Aid Campaign Manager Tod Bradbury stated:
“We are delighted to hear that Costa Coffee will be launching new vegan options this year. Once launched, every major coffee chain in the UK will offer a vegan lunch option. This shows how much veganism is growing, and how mainstream it has become.”
Considering the amount of major UK-based supermarkets that have released vegan ranges this year alone, we have to agree!
