McDonald’s tests McPlant, a meatless Beyond Meat burger – .

McDonald’s new plant-based burger, aptly named McPlant, is coming to eight restaurants in the United States (via CNBC). The fast food chain has partnered with Beyond Meat to create the meatless option. It comes about a year after McDonald’s ended its pilot PLT, another Beyond Meat-branded burger.

It is still unclear what the differences are between the McPlant and the PLT other than the name. An article on the McDonald’s website states that the McPlant patty will contain peas, rice and potatoes and will also be topped with tomatoes, lettuce, onions, pickles, mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard and of American cheese. It sounds a lot like the PLT, but we won’t really know until its test begins on November 3. It’s also important to note that the McPlant will be cooked on the same grill as the beef burgers, so it might not be classified as purely vegan or vegetarian.

McDonald’s briefly led the PLT in Canada from 2019 to 2020. And as CNBC noted, at the time, McDonald’s said it had no plans to resurrect the burger. Something must have changed the way McDonald’s thinks – maybe these were the results of the McPlant test he conducted in Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands, Austria and the UK.

Meatless options are increasingly popular in fast food restaurants, with Burger King setting the trend with the Impossible Whopper in 2019. Other chains also jumped on the bandwagon in the same year, with Subway introducing the Beyond Meatball Marinara and KFC pilot plant. fried chicken based.

If your mouth is watering just thinking of McPlant, you can soon find it at McDonald’s in Irving, TX; Carrollton, Texas; Cedar Falls, IA; Jennings, LA; Lake Charles, LA; El Segundo, California; and Manhattan Beach, CA while supplies last.
