McDonald’s has a new meat-free option that will be available in selected UK restaurants later this month.
And it looks like people living in the Midlands will be some of the first to try it.
The fast food chain is rolling out its new McPlant burger in 10 stores in and around Coventry from September 29.
But those living elsewhere in the UK will have to wait a little longer to get their mitts on it.
In October, another 250 stores will debut the new plant-based option. However, the official launch is set to be on January 1 2022 – to coincide with Veganuary.
McDonald’s has spent the last three years researching and developing the burger – which has been co-created with Beyond Meat.
While the burger is plant-based and made with pea protein, it still comes in at 429 calories (for context, a beef quarter pounder is 518).
It’s also cooked separately from other items on the McDonald’s menu – even with different utensils, to avoid contamination.
