Stop Everything: McDonald's Are Testing Vegan McNuggets And OMG
Vegans in Norway can now be total Maccas fans like the rest of us as they test out vegan McNuggets.
Behold the newest menu item that has appeared at some McDonald's locations in Norway. These vegan McNuggets.
They are, according to McDonald's Norway, made with a base of mashed potatoes, combined with "chickpeas, onions, carrots and corn," and coated in a layer of breadcrumbs. Finally, they're fried until golden and crispy.
Excuse us while we drool. Let's look at them again.
Also part of the Norwegian, vegian, we mean "vegan" line is an entirely vegetarian sandwich called the Vegetarian McFeast. The Veg McFeast, according to McDonald's Norway, consists of a crispy breaded bean-based burger, onions, carrots, and green peppers. It's topped with cheese, tomato, lettuce, pickles and a special sauce and served in whole wheat bun. Dairy-free customers can order the sandwich without the cheese and sauce for a full vegan version.
It's not the first vegan option for Maccas worldwide. In January, McDonald’s announced on Instagram that it had added “McFalafel” to its menu in Sweden.
They also rolled out a vegan Happy Meal in the UK at the same time, featuring a flour tortilla wrap filled with veggies.
And back in 2017, McDonald's offered its first vegan burger, named “The McVegan,” in Finland.
Sadly -- before we cause a stampede -- there are no plans for the vegan nuggets to come down under any time soon.
A spokesman for McDonald's told 10 daily, "We understand there is a rising demand for vegan and vegetarian options and we are always open to suggestions from our customers. We currently have a small number of items on our menu suitable for vegan customers, and have a new vegetarian option in the works we will begin to trial this year."
