7. Taco Bell's Bean Burrito: I ordered the burrito Fresco, which replaces all dairy with pico de gallo. Very little pico was actually added, so it was basically just beans in a wrap. The texture wasn't very good, it didn't taste like much of anything, and it was difficult to eat it because it was falling apart.

6. Chick-fil-A's Market Salad: The salad is vegan if ordered without chicken and cheese.

Everything tasted fresh, and it was definitely more substantial than a typical fast-food salad. Still, it wasn't filling at all, and it was very plain.

5. McDonald's Oatmeal: This is the only vegan option on the menu at McDonald's if you order it without cream.

It was filling, but it was way too sweet for my taste. McDonald's oatmeal has nearly twice as much sugar as a Hershey bar and more than 300 calories per serving. It was hard to eat because it was so sweet, especially as a breakfast option.

4. Taco Bell's Crunchwrap Supreme: To make it vegan, I ordered it without cheese, beef, or sour cream, and I added black beans.

It was really good, but I wish there was more of everything that was left. Even though it tasted fine, it was flimsy and not very filling because there was so little in it.

3. Burger King's French Toast Sticks: The French Toast Sticks were better than I expected them to be, and are vegan straight off the menu, with no changes or substitutions. I ordered the smallest size, but it was definitely not enough to eat.

The syrup tasted too artificially sweet, but the French Toast was a bit dry without it. But as far as vegan fast food goes, it was definitely one of the better options.

2. Au Bon Pain's 12 Veggie Soup: The soup was actually labeled vegan, which was nice. At most other chains the vegan options were just vegan by coincidence.

It was one of the healthier options, and it was really flavorful and filling, too. It didn't taste as artificial as the other options did.

1. White Castle's Vegan Sliders: White Castle has a few different vegan options, including the veggie sliders and Impossible Burger sliders without cheese.

The veggie sliders, which are from the Dr. Praeger’s brand, are made from vegetables like carrots, zucchini, peas, spinach, broccoli. They tasted really good, and they weren't dry or overcooked at all. Even with nothing on them, they had a great flavor.

The Impossible Burger sliders, which are plant-based burgers meant to imitate meat, were by far the best option in terms of vegan fast food. They were filling, didn't taste super artificial or sweet, and were only $1.99 each.
