Mc Donald’s


Veggies, rejoice – McDonalds have announced some exciting news.

Their first ever vegetarian Happy Meal® will be on the menu – from today.

And if that wasn’t enough, there will also be a new adult Spicy Veggie Wrap available on the permanent menu.


The two new additions have answered the growing demand from customers for more meat-free choices.

Menu Director at McDonald’s UK & Ireland Duncan Cruttenden has said how the restaurant loves that their customers help them evolve and improve.

He said, ”We are really thrilled to be able to give our customers this new choice with the addition of the Spicy Vegetarian Wrap and our first Vegetarian Happy Meal.”

So what deliciousness can we expect in these new wraps and meals?

So the Happy Meal® Veggie Wrap is made with a Red Pesto Goujon with Tomato Ketchup and Shredded Lettuce wrapped in a soft, toasted tortilla – yum.

And the NEW Spicy Veggie Wrap is made with two Red Pesto Goujons, a generous dressing of Spicy Relish with Tomato, Lettuce and Red Onion all wrapped in a soft, toasted tortilla.

Whether you’re veggie, flexy or looking for a delicious meat-free lunch you can come and #LiveYourBestLunch at your local McDonald’s.

We know we will be.


If we could eat Mc Donalds all day, everyday, we totally would, and one of the tastiest elements of a Mc D's is the savoury sauces.

That's why when we saw that the sauces are being sold on supermarket shelves,we felt that you needed to know this vital fact.

The secret sauces from the iconic Big Mac, the Fillet-O-Fish and the Mc Chicken will all be available in bottle formula. 

The sauces will be available from this spring, but in a devastating turn of events, the sauces are currently only available on the Canadian market.

Despite this upsetting development, we're still seriously appreciating people's Twitter reactions to the news. 

People do love that Big Mac sauce, though. 

Hopefully the yummy sauces make their way to Ireland, ASAP!


Fast food giant McDonald’s is definitely not a restaurant associated with eating well. Now though, the chain is trying to shake its ‘junk food’ image with a new approach.

The company hosted a dinner event in New York for influential foodies, bloggers and reporters recently. Guests were served dishes prepared using McDonald’s ingredients, but with a ‘fine dining’ twist.

McNuggets with sweet and sour sauce and a parsley garnish were dished up as a kung pao chicken starter. Then, a main course of slow-cooked beef and potato gnocchi made from McDonald’s French fries was served with a fruit sauce. And for dessert, the chain’s biscuit mix was used to create a pumpkin and spice ‘biznut’ – a biscuit and doughnut combo.

Hmm… it all sounds slightly weird to us, like something you might throw together after a drunken night on the tiles!

The dinner was marketed as “a transforming dining experience of ‘fast food’ to ‘good food served fast.’” The strange new dishes won’t be appearing on the McDonald’s menu, but the company has made a concerted effort in recent years to bump up its healthy options, with salads, egg whites and fruit all now available.

McDonald's is still our go-to after a night out, but we're not sure we’d want to pop in for a plate of gnocchi…


It may seem like eating healthy is more trouble than its worth, especially since the cost of a good healthy salad costs much more than a hamburger in McDonald’s.

But, with the right mind-set and a little bit of planning, you can eat the right foods at an affordable price.

Make a smart list
One of the best ways you can eat healthy while on a budget is to buy in bulk. Decide on what you’ll need to for the week ahead and stick to it.

Look at the volume as well as the price
If the lowest price doesn’t give you the best value for your money, then skip it. Focus on the price per unit not price per packet.

Forget the brands
To be smart about shopping on a budget you need to pay for the content not the brand.

Keep an eye out for special offers
That buy one get one free offer is always helpful when on a budget.

Buy frozen
Opt for the freezer and get frozen. Fresh is good too, but it may go off quicker than frozen goods.
