Have you heard the news? For decades it has been nearly impossible to order anything vegan at Wienerschnitzel. But this notoriously vegan-unfriendly fast food joint just became the first national chain to offer Field Roast’s vegan stadium hot dogs! They’re finally available at ALL locations and we’re so hot-dog happy!
Way to go, Wienerschnitzel! We’ve been waiting way too long and have been hankering for some vegan hot dogs. Though we find it pretty frustrating to order vegan at Wienerschnitzel, we do give you kudos for your latest conquest.
The plant-based possibilities for fast food frankfurters are low-to-no, so this is an awesome addition to the Land of Vegan Alternatives. And, for that, we thank you. We’re excited for more and hope that this is only the first in a loooong line of vegan-friendly meals!
You may be wondering, “What will they offer next for the vegan community”? I vote for wholeheartedly for an Impossible Burger, Chao cheese, or french fries (not fried in lard). How about you?
This hot dog haven welcomes three new items to their menu—the “meat-less and flavor-ful” Veggie Dogs packed with plant-based pea protein. Choose from the three aptly named options:
We’re excited to announce that, in January 2022, Wienerschnitzel made these delicious veggie dogs available to all of its 327 U.S. locations across 10 states. Woo-hoo to you, Wienerschnitzel! Double-check the Wienerschnitzel location list for more details.
Isn’t it fantastic that Wienershcnitzel is using Field Roast’s Signature Stadium Dogs for their full-time frankfurters? Not only do the Veggie Dogs look incredibly delicious, they’re also:
Whether or not there’s a location near you that will offer these downright delectable veggie dogs, you can rest assured that Field Roast will sell their new product in stores soon. Perfect timing for the upcoming baseball and grilling season!
These are the only options that are vegan-friendly at the this time and not all of them are available at all locations––in particular; the coffee, tea, and orange juice.
Remember to ask for your bun of choice with no butter.
Sadly, most of the menu items are not vegan-friendly and they include:
This is very disappointing indeed! Oh, Wienerschnitzel…why no fries????
While it’s not so easy to order vegan at Wienerschnitzel, there are a few things that you can do to make the meal more manageable.
Let’s hope that vegan burgers, vegan cheese, and dairy-free ice cream shakes are on the way. Though, it looks as if there might be light at the end of the tunnel on the dairy-free cheese front and they may be thinking of a similar partnership with Chao Creamery, the sister company to Field Roast. We must raise our voices for french fries (and let them know that we’re hankering for hash browns) that are not fried using lard! At least, that way, we’d have a satisfying starch to go with our food.
A family-owned business founded in 1961 by John Galardi in Southern California. Besides being best-known for their burgers and hot dogs, they also offer Tastee Freez dairy desserts (including shakes, cones, sundaes, and splits) that are similar to the ones at Dairy Queen.
Let them know! Your voice matters. Request a vegan cheese or a plant-based burger option to go with their delicious Veggie hot dogs. Write them, message them on social media, talk to the manager of your local branch. Trust us, they are listening, and the more they hear it, the faster they’ll evolve.
