White Castle to Launch Dairy-Free Cheese

White Castle will soon become one of the first fast food chains in the nation to offer a dairy-free cheese option.

The chain is partnering with GOOD PLANeT FOODS to launch a dairy-free cheddar cheese slice to top any of their sliders, including their plant-based Impossible Slider, starting March 1 in their New Jersey and New York City restaurants.

White Castle’s Impossible Slider was first introduced as a test item in April 2018, and then established as a permanent menu item five months later, making them the first fast-food hamburger chain to partner with Impossible Foods to offer the Impossible Slider patty. The Impossible Slider consists of an Impossible Slider patty, smoked cheddar cheese, pickles, and onions on a signature bun. Previously made vegan by omitting the dairy cheddar cheese, the slider can now be made fully vegan by substituting it with the upcoming dairy-free cheddar slice.

"Our Impossible Slider was an instant Craver favorite, but it's about to get a new dimension with the introduction of dairy-free cheddar," said Jamie Richardson, vice president of White Castle. "We are excited to bring this new non-dairy, vegan item to Cravers in the New York and New Jersey areas with the hope of taking it to other markets in the future."

This new plant-based addition to their menu is just another on White Castle’s growing list. Previous to their 2018 Impossible Slider launch, the chain introduced their Veggie Slider, which features a vegan patty made by Dr. Praeger's in 2015. That same year, they also updated their bun recipe to make them vegan. Additionally, they also have a Black Bean Slider available in retail outlets only.

"We're committed to innovation, and we're always looking for ways to do things better and make things better for our loyal customers," Richardson said. "It's exciting to be the fast-food restaurant that's leading the trend in providing plant-based options for consumers."
