McDonald's has unveiled a new vegan burger that'll get many people smiling over their latest happy meal.
The burger, ceremoniously dubbed the McVegan, consists of a soy-based patty topped with tomato, lettuce, pickles, with vegan McFeast sauce, on a sesame bun.
Sounds good, but the catch? You can only get the burger at its sole location in Tampere, Finland, from Oct. 4 to Nov. 21.
Kun asuu Mansessa, pääsee testaamaan kaikkea hyvää! 😀👌 Tänään testissä Mäkkärin McVegan, joka on testimyynnissä vain Tampereella. Oli hyvä hamppari! 👌🍔🍟Nyt kaikki manselaiset syömään tätä hampparia, niin saadaan se pysyvästi listalle ympäri Suomen. 😊👍 #vegaaninen #hampurilainen #mcvegan #tampere #vegaanienpäälaupunki
McDonald's is only one of the latest brands to get on board with the vegan bandwagon, from Pizza Hut's vegan cheese pizza, to vegan Baileys, and vegan Ben and Jerry's.
Despite it's short test run, people from around the world have strong feelings about the burger.
Some are addressing the ingredients which compose the burger.
@McDonalds the McVegan will fail because you chose to make it from soy. There are many non soy burger alternatives that are way better.— Speaking Consciously (@ConsciousSpeek) October 15, 2017
McDonald's just launched a Vegan Burger, the McVegan. The patty is soy-based. Soy is 1 of the worst things U can eat! Avoid it at all cost!!— Linda Steinhauser (@Medaton) October 12, 2017
While others criticize the concept of a vegan product coming from a predominately meat-orientated fast food chain.
“Cruelty free” vegans wetting themselves over the McVegan is laughable tbh— nick (@communick) October 13, 2017
However, people are coming to the burger's defense, arguing the introduction of the burger will help veganism flourish and become mainstream in society.
maybe the McVegan isn't such a bad thing… because this is what veganism needs to be in order to be both accessible AND mainstream— 🏴 (@earthxbound) October 13, 2017
Vegan people talkin crap on the McVegan is mad funny do y’all not want billions of new people to read the word “vegan” every year when they go through the drive thru? What better way to promote veganism than to have it plastered on one of the biggest coorperations in the world— North Dakota Tough (@Boyertown69) October 12, 2017
