A&W's New Beyond Burger Is Now on the Menu Nationwide
A&W, like many fast food chains before it, is now fully backing a plant-based burger option. After testing a Beyond Burger last year -- and subsequently receiving a nomination in the best plant-based burger category at Thrillist's fast food awards -- A&W has decided to launch its delicious vegetarian-friendly burger nationwide.
The Beyond Burger consists of a grilled meat-like vegetarian patty that's topped with Papa Sauce, lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickles all on a toasted bun. In addition to the tradition Beyond Burger, A&W is also making a meatier flexitarian option that includes strips of hickory-smoked bacon.
“A&W is bringing the same quality that made our traditional burgers famous to the Beyond Burger,” Sarah Blasi Mueller, senior vice president of marketing and development for A&W, said in a press release. "In our tests we learned that a lot of guests want the best of new and old. That’s why we are offering a Beyond Burger version of our Original Bacon Cheeseburger that adds salad dressing, hickory-smoked bacon, American cheese, lettuce, tomato, onions and more pickles.”
If you're trying to reduce your meat intake, maybe try a Beyond Burger from A&W. It has all the fixings and flavors you love from a traditional burger without the meat. And maybe, in due time, A&W will swap out the hickory-smoked bacon for strips of Beyond bacon that are currently in development.
