The Beyond Sausage originally rolled out across all Veggie Grill locations in April. The 'original' sausage is served on a Pretzilla bun with Sierra Nevada cheese sauce, caramelized onions, mustard, pickled red cabbage and crispy fries.

Speaking about the sausage when it launched, Ethan Brown, CEO of Beyond Meat, said: "I love Beyond Sausage first and foremost because it's truly so enjoyable to eat but also because I see it as an advance in our team's relentless march toward a perfect build of meat from plants.

"Though we aren't there yet, I'm encouraged by the progress we've made with Beyond Sausage and look forward to hearing what the consumer thinks."
