Will there be a meat-free option coming to U.S. McDonald’s?
Other companies like KFC and Burger King have introduced plant based menu items.
McDonald’s is now following in their footsteps with its new McPlant burger.
What is the McDonald’s McPlant burger?
The McPlant burger is a meat-free option for those looking for a healthier alternative to the traditional meat patty.
The company wrote “Plant. Lettuce. Tomato” when marketing their new burger.
This patty was created with the help of Beyond Meat.
Beyond Meat is a producer of meatless products, and includes pears, rice, and potatoes among other ingredients.
When can I get a McPlant burger?
Currently, the McPlant burger is only available in Ireland and the UK.
But it will soon be making its debut in the U.S..
The burger will be sold at 600 of the chains store in Dallas and San Francisco starting February 14.
For now it is unknown when the McPlant will be available at other locations across the country.
