Chickens are arguably the most abused animals on the planet. But luckily for them, there are more and more vegan chicken options showing up in supermarkets nationwide. Whether you’re craving chicken wings, nuggets, or a patty, these vegan versions will wow your taste buds—without any of the cruelty.
Popular Beyond Meat has launched a long-awaited addition to its vegan meat offerings: Beyond Chicken Tenders. These tenders are a crispy, juicy, and animal-free take on a classic—without the suffering. More chickens are raised and killed for food than all other land animals combined, so by creating a vegan chicken option, Beyond Meat is helping to put an end to this senseless violence. Following a successful trial of the tenders at restaurants across the country, including chains like Sarpino’s Pizzeria, Dog Haus, and JAILBIRD, Beyond Chicken Tenders are now hitting stores. Walmart, Jewel-Osco, Harris Teeter, Giant Foods, ShopRite, and Safeway are all going to be stocking the Beyond Chicken Tenders, with other grocers likely to follow. Find out where it’s being sold near you to try it today!

You can currently find its products in Sprouts, Kroger, Costco, and other stores.
