From a vegan perspective, I find their eat mor chickn ads to be a little messed up. Of course, many people find these ads funny and would tell me to be more light-hearted about it, but I just don’t find the humor in them. Why would I want people to eat more chicken? Maybe that is why I choose not to support Chick-Fil-A no matter what the few vegan options they may have are.
If you are on the road and have no other option or are heading to Chick-Fil-A with your nonvegan friends or family, then you may be wondering what you can eat. They haven’t quite caught up with KFC and their decision to offer a vegan chicken alternative, but maybe they have a vegan-friendly option or two.
