Noodles, dumplings have no meat, dairy, egg
The home of the Big Gulp has gone vegan.
All-night convenience store chain 7-Eleven has added artichoke spinach noodles, vegetable lo mein and two types of dumplings - all minus meat, egg or dairy - to Slurpees and hot dogs at its New York city stores.
"There was demand in the New York and Philadelphia area, not only from our customers but from our our employees and franchisees, some of whom are vegetarians," Margaret Chabris, director of corporate communications told the News.
Right now, eight 7-Eleven stores in Manhattan are offering a test run on the $6 items.
If all goes well, stores across the country may do the same.
So far, New York vegans are pleased.
"My favorite's the artichoke spinach noodles," Humane Society of the United States' Patrick Kwan posted on Facebook. "They are yummy and great for when you're on the go."
