ANGRY vegans have claimed a new carrot, lettuce and tomato sandwich takes the Micky out of their lifestyle.
They got the hump when UK supermarket Morrisons launched the new CLT – a carrot, lettuce and tomato – as a vegan alternative to a BLT – a bacon, lettuce and tomato.
Instead of being pleased that the supermarket was making an effort to respond to their needs vegans said they were being victimised.
Vegan, Stevie Shepherd, said: “Not to sound ungrateful but a salad sandwich?
“No wonder everyone asks where we get our protein.”
Fellow vegan Erin Caroline added: “This is such a let down. “Why can’t they make a hearty, delicious, on the go sandwich?
“Apparently no vegans work for them, or there were no public surveys done with vegans, as I guarantee this would not have been suggested.”
But a woman named only as Isabella said she liked the sandwich.
She said: “Had this yesterday. Please don’t knock it before you try it.”
“The carrot does actually taste like bacon because of how it’s smoked and it’s absolutely delicious.”
A spokeswoman for the supermarket said they were pleased to be able to do more to cater for vegans.
She said: “Morrisons has launched the carrot, lettuce and tomato sandwich for those looking for a twist on the classic BLT.
“It also includes tomatoes, lettuce and vegan mayo, all sandwiched between malted bread.”
