File this under things we never expected to report: McDonald’s may be adding a vegan burger to its menu. The “McVegan,” as it’s called, first premiered on the fast food chain’s Finnish website, because apparently Finland has a particularly high percentage of vegans per capita. (Just kidding, we have literally no idea why this started in Finland; seems kind of random and a little hilarious.)
This new evolution in McDonald’s menu is comprised of a soy patty, and comes with vegan fries.
(We have…questions…about what makes McDonald’s fries not vegan in the first place.)
Late night food runs to McDonald’s must be a bit challenging for vegans, so we’re happy that our vegan friends will be able to enjoy peak drunk food with us in the future.
Although we wouldn’t necessarily describe McDonald’s as committed to healthy eating, the company on a whole has definitely been making a push for some better options for the health-conscious. A representative of McDonald’s said:
We’re all for more food options for people of all dietary lifestyles, so we’ll file this as a win.
