McDonald’s Just Launched A Vegan Burger! (Here Are The Details)

The fast food chain has announced they are trialling a new item for their menu – a vegan burger.

McDonald’s has launched the new product, which is appropriately called the McVegan, with the aim of testing if the plant-based item proves popular.

Sadly there is one catch for fast food fans excited by the news – it is initially only available in Tampere, Finland from October 4 to November 21.

The McVegan is a soy-based patty nestled in a bun with lettuce, onions, ketchup and mustard and has already caused McDonald’s fans to go wild.

Excited social media users have been commenting saying they hope the chain will trial it in a number of different locations and have urged the company to bring it to the UK.

The news was announced by McDonald’s Suomi, which is the Finnish Instagram account for the brand, and it has received over 600 likes on the app.

Customers who have been lucky enough to get their hands on the McVegan burger have been eagerly sharing images of their meals online.

One lady claimed she had boycotted the brand for over 20 years, but the new plant-based burger had changed her mind.
