McDonald's menu update sees brand new burger coming next week

McDonald's menu update sees brand new burger coming next week

After a successful launch last year, McDonald’s is launching the new burger at all restaurants across the UK & Ireland from next week

A brand new McDonald's burger will be available in UK and Ireland restaurants next week.

Many of us may be dreading life returning to normal after days of scoffing leftover turkey and Christmas chocolates, but Maccies has got something up its sleeve to make the dark winter months a bit more cheerful.

Vegan and vegetarian McDonald's fans will be pleased to know that one of their favourite orders has just got a whole lot better.

The McPlant burger launched last year, and received rave reviews from fast food lovers.

So now Maccies has had the bright idea of doubling up and launching the Double McPlant burger, which has not one but two Beyond Meat® patties.

The burger is ideal for those taking part in Veganuary or for those who just enjoy a meat-free alternative.

Maccies fans were thrilled at the news.

One user said: “I know it’s 7am but when are @McDonaldsUK going to allow a Double McPlant?? All I want is the option to have two patties. this is the important stuff I need addressed.”

Another fan tweeted: “I have said on many occasions that the McPlant has changed my life, but if there were to be a double McPlant? I can only imagine.”

The Double McPlant features two Beyond Meat® patties, a vegan sesame bun, mustard, ketchup, vegan sandwich sauce, fresh onion, pickles, lettuce, tomato and vegan cheese.

McDonald's say the burger is cooked separately from other dishes, using dedicated utensils.

The new Double McPlant will cost £4.89 on its own or £6.49 as a meal.

It will be in all restaurants across the UK & Ireland from Wednesday 4 Jan 2023.

Sadly it's not all good news though, and several items on the Christmas menu will not be available come 3 January.

These include:

Big Tasty - £5.29 on its own or £6.89 as a meal

Big Tasty with bacon - £5.89 on its own or £7.49 as a meal

Cheese Melt Dippers - £2.29

Cheese Melt Dippers Sharebox - £5.99

Celebrations McFlurry - £1.79 for regular

McCrispy - £4.99 or £6.49 as a meal

Festive Pie - £1.29

Caramel Waffle Latte - £2.09

Hot Chocolate Deluxe - £1.49

The Big Tasty will be ditched from 4 January.

Just last month McDonald's announced it would help redistribute over 1 million meals through FareShare to families in greatest need.

Phil Foden, Emmanuel Petit, Laura Woods and Bash the Entertainer, have all contributed to raise awareness of the campaign.

England and Man City footballer, Phil Foden, said: “McDonald’s and FareShare are making sure more than one million meals get to people across the country who need them most.

"I’ve got some great memories of watching football as a kid, surrounded by family and friends.

"I really hope that this partnership means more families can enjoy a good meal this winter and create some amazing memories of their own. It’s such an important issue and I was happy to help out.”

Lindsay Boswell, CEO at FareShare added: “We’re incredibly grateful for the invaluable support from McDonald’s over the last two years, and we wouldn’t be able to reach as many people without their help.

"Getting food around the country and into people’s hands is one of the biggest challenges we face.

"As demand for our food has skyrocketed, funding the redistribution of over one million meals this winter will make a huge difference. We’re thrilled to have this support from McDonald’s in getting food that may otherwise go to waste to people in need.”
