2019 has been a good year for vegans – and now the meatless meatball marina sub is coming to Subway.
The meatless meatball marina was launched in the U.S. earlier this year but they’ve finally confirmed that it is coming to the UK.
The U.S. version wasn’t fully vegan as it included cheese on top but vegans could ask for a sub with just the meatballs, sauce and bread.
Subway in the UK hasn’t confirmed yet if they’ll be offering dairy-based cheese to top the sub or if vegans will face a similar situation.
The vegan meatballs will be available this week but the bad news is that this is just a trial so it’s only available for a few weeks in stores in Birmingham and Manchester for now.
Subway has been pretty tight-lipped about the details of the trial but said they are hoping to roll it out from early next year though, so prepare for it to come to a store near you in 2020.
A spokesperson for Subway UK told Metro.co.uk: ‘We are currently trialling an exciting new vegan product, our Meatless Meatball Marinara, in a number of stores across the UK.
‘We are hoping to introduce these nationwide early next year, so keep your eyes peeled and we’ll let you know once we have more information.’
A sign posted by Vegan_food_uk said that the meatless meatball marinara sub is available until 20 November.
They haven’t released a list of the stores where it is available just yet so if you’re in Manchester or Birmingham, it’s worth asking at your local branch.
