Vegan ‘Mukbang’: Watch These Influencers Eat a Taco Bell Feast

Wondering how to order vegan at Taco Bell? Looking for vegan snacks at your local convenience store? Need to scratch your ASMR itch? Search no further. In a new vegan mukbang video, social media influencers Sonia Elsie and Matthew Ayer (aka “The Veggie Pilot“) sit down with PETA to answer all your burning questions about being vegan and finding food while you’re traveling.

Mukbang videos have become extremely popular over the last few years, and these celebs couldn’t wait to dish about their vegan lives while trying all sorts of snacks and fast-food options that spare animals immense suffering. Sonia and Matt sample some of our favorite vegan foods and beverages from chain restaurants, like the Seven-Layer Burrito at Taco Bell (ordered “Fresco style,” of course) and the Chestnut Praline Latte at Starbucks (with soy milk and no whipped cream).

But these celebs don’t just talk about the food they’re eating—they also discuss their vegan journeys. Here’s Matt talking about his:

When I started doing videos, I was still vegetarian at the time, but I was promoting them in a lot of vegan groups on Facebook. And subsequently while promoting them there, I was exposed to content from the vegan community. It started really making me think. Because I was vegetarian for animal rights, I realized if I was gonna do vegetarian for the animals, I really had to go vegan for the animals. Because the dairy industry in its own way was just as cruel as a lot of the slaughterhouses. And once I did … go vegan, it was, like, ya know, I could have easily done this way sooner.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
