The Fast Food Meals We Should Have in the U.S. (But Don’t)

In the U.S., we tend to think of fast food fare as the standard burger-and-fries combo. Throw in a pepperoni or cheese pizza and a hot dog on a rare occasion, and that pretty much covers all the bases. But outside of the States, the average consumer has different tastes. And while, sure, a plain burger is likely to be popular in many parts of the world, fast food customers in different countries have distinct tastes. Take a trip to a fast food joint in India, Taiwan, Kenya or Italy, and you’re likely going to see some menu items you’d never even dream of seeing in the U.S.

While some of these dishes may seem out of the ordinary to a consumer in the States, you have to remember that fast food companies aren’t going to release foods that are going to be wildly unpopular—unless they’re likely to elicit a

Slutty Vegan Co-Founder Pinky Cole On Plant-Based Fast Food

Whether you’re a staunch vegan or a hardcore carnivore, it’s easy to see that the vegan food space is more exciting than it’s ever been.

Thankfully, people like Pinky Cole — CEO, and co-founder of the massively popular Slutty Vegan — are making it easier for us meat-eaters to expand and rethink

Vegan Fast Food Is on the Rise

New company Plant Power Fast Food is taking on fast-food mega-giants and making a bet on plant-based eating as the “way of the future.” With more attention on heart- and planet-healthy eating generally, plant-based fast food options are proliferating across the industry.

The company, based in California, has a strong base near colleges and recently opened its 10th location in food-centric Las Vegas, reported The Beet. That store is the chain’s first outside of California and is part of a strategic expansion plan across the golden state and beyond.


Plant-based fast food isn’t a new idea, of course. Giants Burger King and McDonald’s have tried runs with Impossible and Beyond burgers, respectively. Following a successful month-long trial run of vegan/vegetarian burger options in 2019, the former rolled out the meatless Impossible Whopper nationwide to all of its 7,200 branches. They are also currently trialing Impossible nuggets as a chicken
