Subway has unveiled three new options for vegan sandwich lovers featuring soy meats.

According to Long Island Press, the veg sandwiches, the Sweet Riblet, Malibu Greek and Italian Black Bean, include vegan “turkey, ham and chicken.” They are the sandwich chain’s first totally vegan options in the USA. The “Veggie Delight” sandwich has been on the Subway menu for quite a while now but comes with cheese unless you opt out, and Subway’s “Totally Vegged” patty is only sold in Canadian stores.

Subway didn’t exactly win over animal lovers when Michael Vick won “Subway Sportsman of the Year” at the BET Awards last year, prompting calls for a “No Way Subway” boycott. Maybe the new vegan options will help get them some points? Animal advocacy organization Compassion Over Killing (COK) has had a long-time campaign calling on Subway to introduce options with veg meats.

“Thousands of consumers from coast to coast are also letting the company know, through our campaign website,  WeLoveSubway.com, that the interest in healthier and more humane vegan options is on the rise. We were excited to announce late last year that Subway stores across Canada introduced a new ‘Totally Vegged’ vegan patty — and now we, along with The Humane League, are excited to share even more good news: Starting this week, several Subway Cafés in Maryland, DC, and Virginia are featuring three new all-vegan savory sandwiches,” says COK.

Check out COK’s list of Subway locations offering the new sandwiches. If they sell well at the Maryland, DC and Virginia stores currently offering them, the vegan options may be introduced at more Subways.

    There are too many GMOs and processed breads in Subway. I’ll never eat there again until I see some REAL food options and not preserved veggies and dough conditioners.

      You took the words right out of my mouth. Also, I’m sure they’re not using organic soy which means the soybeans they’re making the products from are gmo unless they state otherwise.

    I hope these vegan options come to the UK!

    These look so good (especially the riblet), and I’m so excited Subway is reaching out to vegans and vegetarians. Can’t wait to try them! I just hope they add them to more Subways!
