More than two years ago, MorningStar Farms pledged to go completely vegan. They haven’t fully achieved that goal, but their new product launches have focused on vegan eats. Last year, we shared the release of their dairy-free Pizza Bites Veggitizers. And this year, they’ve expanded the Morningstar Farms Veggitizers line to include two more cheesy bites: Veggie Chik’n & Cheeze Taquito Bites and Veggie Chorizo Nacho Bites.
