McDonald’s launches its new vegan burger for those of you who don’t eat meat

Anna O'Rourke

Eating out or even just getting a hangover takeaway isn’t always easy for veggies and vegans.

Between trying to find something decent on the menu to fielding all sorts of questions about your dietary choices (“What about smokey bacon crisps?”), sometimes you’d wonder if it’s worth it at all.

Thankfully, help is at hand – more and more restaurants are upping their game and creating vegan food that doesn’t taste like nothing at all, and McDonald’s is now striving to ensure its non-meat-eating customers don’t have to miss out.

The restaurant chain already announced last year that it was trialling a vegan-friendly burger. And now (hurrah!) it’s being rolled out further.

Which all-in-all is pretty great news for anyone who’s avoiding meat and actually wants to get a full meal at Maccy D’s (without having to opt for a salad. You don’t win friends with salad.)

The McVegan is a soy-based burger in a regular bun with all of the usual trimmings as well as ‘vegan McFeast sauce’.
Sadly, if you’re super keen on trying it asap you’ll have to catch a flight as the burger is currently only being sold in Finland and Sweden, but we’re hoping to see it hit Irish shores in the coming months.
