7-Eleven Expands Vegan Items

More than 100 7-Eleven locations on the East Coast are now carrying grab 'n' go vegan meals.

After a test run in select New York stores received a positive response, 7-Eleven franchises will now be carrying special vegan items in more than 100 stores in four East Coast states. Patrons of the convenience store who step into one of its locations in Philadelphia, Boston, Newark, or New York City, among other cities, now have the option of picking up entrée-sized vegan takeout meals including linguine tikka masala, pad Thai, and spinach noodles with vegetables. Last summer, The Huffington Post also published an article pointing out that 7-Eleven carries a number of “accidentally vegan” items, including the store brand’s fudge mint cookies and apple danishes.
