MCDONALDS have finally released their vegan Big Mac alternative, the McPlant. More than 250 stores will be offering the vegan burger from today but is your local on the list?
As of today, October 13, McDonald’s are widening their menu to include a vegan burger option. Vegans, vegetarians and those who are trying to cut down on their meat intake have applauded the move by McDonald’s and will be first in line to try the McPlant today. But which restaurants are selling the McPlant? And how much does it cost?
The long-anticipated McDonald’s vegan burger the McPlant has launched at 250 McDonald’s stores across the country today – is your local Maccies on the list?
The McPlant looks like a very convincing dupe of McDonald’s famous beef burgers, but it is 100 percent vegan.
McDonalds describes the McPlant as “a vegan burger made with a juicy plant-based patty co-developed with Beyond Meat featuring vegan sandwich sauce, ketchup, mustard, onion, pickles, lettuce, tomato, and vegan cheese in a sesame seed bun.”
McDonald’s says: “McDonald’s UK&I has spent three years on research and development to bring a delicious plant-based offering to British and Irish customers.
“Every element of the McPlant was designed with taste and quality top-of-mind – from the plant-based patty co-developed with Beyond Meat, to innovative vegan cheese based on pea protein that tastes just like McDonald’s iconic cheese slices, and a new vegan sauce.”
The McPlant has been available from restaurants in Nuneaton and Coventry since the end of September, but today it’s available at restaurants all over the country.
The burger will be available from every McDonald’s in the UK and Ireland from January 2022.
Vegans don’t have to pay extra for their burger either. The McPlant is £3.49 on its own or £4.89 as a meal.
Michelle Graham-Clare, chief marketing officer for McDonald’s UK and Ireland said: “We are always looking for different ways to innovate and meet our customers’ needs, and with McPlant we have a delicious plant-based burger that will appeal to everyone.
“Whether you’re vegan or just fancy a plant-based patty, we’re confident you will enjoy the McPlant.”
