McDonald's Trials Vegan Burger -- Yes, Seriously!
Before you get too excited I must warn you... this is only happening in Finland - for now. Adorably named the McVegan, it consists of a soy-based patty topped with tomato, salad, pickles and vegan McFeast sauce, sandwiched between a bun. Unfortunately for most vegans, the McVegan is currently only available in Tampere, Finland, and for a limited time - October 4th - November 21. However, if it’s popular, we can hope the McVegan might be rolled out globally. With more and more beloved brands launching vegan-friendly products - from Pizza Hut’s vegan cheese to vegan Baileys - it’s awesome to see this fast-food giant begin to also recognize the importance of creating vegan options. And considering McDonald's has an unparalleled influence on the food system - including factory farming - this could be the beginning of some real change. Viva la vegans!
