A&W Is Officially Adding Plant-Based Chicken Nuggets To Its Menu

A&W Plant-Based Chicken Nuggets

A&W is introducing plant-based chicken nuggets to some of its locations very soon.

According to Erin Ireland, founder of Vancouver’s vegan bakery To Die For Fine Foods, in a partnership post with A&W, these plant-based chicken nuggets will be available beginning Monday, December 2nd.


As is often the case with new menu items, they will not be widely available at first. To begin, they’ll only be available in Ontario and British Columbia.

According to Ireland, the nuggets are made with pea protein, which are also an ingredient in Beyond Meat patties.

A&W, of course, already has Beyond Meat burgers, which are fairly widely agreed upon to be best Beyond Burgers around.

Ireland’s post also confirmed that two dips will be available: barbecue, and sweet ‘n sour.

If fast-food is your guilty pleasure, or non-guilty pleasure, McDonald’s also introduced a new limited-time only Spicy Chipotle Fries this week.
