Vegans rejoice! (But only if you live in Finland). McDonalds are now trialling a vegan burger on their menu, yet it is only available in Finland and at only one store in Finland as well.
If the burger has enough success during it trial run, then it should be pushed out to other stores. Marketing Director of McDonald’s in Finland, Christoffer Rönnblad has said that he is pleased with the reviews that the burger has been getting and claimed;
“We are following the reaction with interest and we are happy to receive feedback,” he said. “That’s the purpose of the trial.
“The vegan hamburger required extensive in-house product development. The [vegan] hamburger steak is soy based. We were really passionate about finding a steak that tastes really good.”
The burger itself is made up of a soy-based patty topped with tomato, salad, pickles and vegan McFeast sauce, sandwiched between a bun.
Being vegan is becoming more and more popular by the day, and restaurant chains are fully aware of that. With Pizza Hut now offering vegan cheese, Wagamama offering a few dishes that are vegan and even the humble ‘Spoons offering a vegan curry option.
Now with that being said, I don’t quite think that KFC got the memo. As the chicken chain is now offering its UK customers its internet famed Double Down burger. The burger itself consists of just cheese and bacon, but instead of a bun its served in between two pieces of fried chicken.
But vegans, you can be happy and meat eaters you can be sad, as the famous burger will only run for six weeks in the UK.
