McDonald’s will launch their first ever vegan meal from January 2, with the introduction of the new Veggie Dippers.  

The new Veggie Dippers, made with red pepper, rice, sundried tomato pesto and split peas surrounded by light and crispy breadcrumbs, have been accredited by The Vegan Society.

Customers will be able to order a fully vegan meal for the first time when the Veggie Dippers are teamed with a Vegan Society approved Fries and any of the soft drink options and sauces. The Veggie Dippers will also be available as a fully vegan Happy Meal® following the success of the first ever veggie Happy Meal® earlier this year.

Thomas O’Neill, Head of Food Marketing at McDonald’s UK & Ireland, said: “In the last 12 months we’ve seen an 80% uplift in customers ordering vegetarian options at McDonald’s, so it is time for the brand famous for the dippable McNugget to launch a dippable option for our vegetarian, vegan and flexitarian customers. The Veggie Dippers are a delicious addition to our menu and we’re looking forward to seeing what customers make of our first vegan Extra Value Meal and Happy Meal in the New Year.”

The new vegan meal options are:

  • NEW Veggie Dippers meal – Four red pepper and pesto dippers with light and crispy breadcrumbs, served with Fries and a soft drink.

  • NEW Veggie Dippers Happy Meal® – Two red pepper and pesto dippers with light and crispy breadcrumbs, served with choice of vegan friendly side (vegetable bag, fruit bag or fries) and water or a Fruit Shoot.

  • Alternatively, the four Veggie Dippers can be purchased separately.

Mark your diaries for June 26 because McDonald’s Ireland is introducing not one, not two, not three, not even four – but FIVE new permanent items and their variants to its menu.

Fans are being treated to a bumper line-up of new and improved recipes – as well as the return of some old favourites, giving customers even more choice.

Not only does the new menu boast choices for customers seeking a lighter lunch but there’s also a revamped breakfast classic and a move towards more sustainable packaging in the salad boxes and McFlurrys.

What’s more, McDonald’s Ireland will host a series of ‘Live Your Best Lunch’ events across Dublin, Cork and Galway to celebrate the arrival of the new menu items. The pop-ups aim to encourage people to ditch desk-dining and make the most of their summer lunch hour whilst sampling the new menu free of charge. Guests to the McDonald’s pop-ups can enjoy activities such as Pound Fit, ukulele lessons and paint classes in the restaurants.

Here’s a look at the legendary menu line-up:

Lighter Lunch Choices and Less Plastic

Did you know that you can treat yourself to a delicious meal at McDonald’s for under 400 or 600 calories? The salad and wrap ranges have been revamped to give customers even more lighter lunch options, but with the same big bold flavours and quality ingredients.

The new Chicken Salad gives customers the choice of crispy (265 calories) or the new and improved grilled chicken (133 calories) with a balsamic dressing. Customers can also add bacon to the salad if they wish.

As well as lighter lunch options, McDonald’s are also going lighter on packaging too – removing all single-use plastic from its salad ranges.  All main meal and side salads will now be served in 100% sustainable and renewable cardboard containers, changing out the existing plastic bowl, shaker salad cups and lids which will result in 102 metric tons of plastic removed annually. McDonald’s will also be removing the plastic from the McFlurry packaging, swapping the plastic lid which will remove 383 metric tons of plastic annually.

The popular wrap range is expanding too with the new ‘The Hot Cajun Chicken One’ being welcomed to the range – this time featuring crispy chicken breast strips or grilled chicken with a Cajun sauce, Pepper Jack cheese, tomato, jalapeño slices and lettuce in a soft, toasted tortilla wrap.

The Return of an Old Favourite

The public has spoken, and McDonald’s has listened. Back by popular demand, the announcement of the return of the Smarties McFlurry to McDonald’s full-time offering is sure to excite ice cream fans across Ireland. Made with vanilla ice cream, crushed Smarties and chocolate sauce – the iconic flavour will now sit alongside Maltesers and Oreo on the permanent McFlurry menu.

A New Breakfast in Town

McDonald’s is also launching a new Bacon Roll in Ireland. Featuring three rashers of bacon on a sourdough-style bun with a choice of brown sauce or ketchup. Whether you call it a butty or a bap, the new Bacon roll is sure to be an instant classic.

All items will be available from McDonald’s Ireland restaurants, McDelivery and Drive-Thrus from June 26, 2019.

It seems that people are excited for these delicious treats.

You know the holidays are coming when McDonalds rolls out their Christmas menu. 

Focusing on winter warming ingredients, the fast food fanatics have introduced two new burger concepts bursting with festive flavour. 

The distinctive menu features a brand new chicken-based burger, and it's launching across the nation today. 

The Chicken Big Tasty, chicken selects, Big Tasty sauce, slivered onions, square cut lettuce, a tomato slice, and Emmental cheese in a square sesame topped bun, is the latest take on the original Big Tasty with beef – which is also making a comeback. 

It will be accompanied by a Big Tasty with bacon.

Vegetarians and cheese aficionados will be delighted to hear that Cheese Dippes, served with spicy tomato dip, are back on the menu. 

Reindeer Treats (carrot bags!) are also now available from all McDonald’s restaurants, the perfect way to get #ReindeerReady for the big day itself.

However, the famous The Terry's Chocolate Orange McFlurry did not make it back on to the menu, for what would have been it's third appearance. 

The Terry's Chocolate Orange McFlurry made a huge splash when it was introduced in 2016 and 2017, as fans of the chocolate treat flocked to get their fix. 

However, it has ben replaced this year with a new offering -The Maltesers Reindeer McFlurry: Soft dairy ice cream swirled with mini Malteaser Reindeer shapes, mini Maltesers clusters and a milk chocolate sauce.

Frankly, it sounds just as delicious and we may have ti start incorporating it into our regular dessert rotation. 

For coffee fans, the Toffee Latte is returning – a large shot of delicious Arabica bean espresso, with rich toffee syrup and steamed organic milk, topped with a swirl of cream and a toffee drizzle.

 However, we're most excited for the new addition – The Millionaire’s Latte.

You know the holidays are coming when McDonalds rolls out their Christmas menu. 

Focusing on winter warming ingredients, the fast food brand have introduced two new burger concepts bursting ith festive flavour. 

First up is the Spicy Chicken Winter Melt, which sees two juicy chicken selects smothered with roasted red pepper sauce and cheese.

Second, McD's have created the Beef Winter Warmer, which sees beef, bacon, cheese and veg come together under a snowflake burger bun.

For the veggies in our midst, there are two meat-free options (however, vegans will have to sit this one out).

Replacing the classic mozzarella dippers are Festive Cheese Melt Dippers. Excuse us while we wipe the drool from our chins. 

 

A post shared by Victoria (@ella_victoria_greyhome) on

Rather than being stuffed with melted mozzarella, these bites are packet with fried camembert cheese and serves with a festive tomato dip. Delightful .

Back on the menu for a second year is the coveted Terry's Chocolate Orange McFlurry

A cult menu item, we've been craving the orange and chocolate McFlurry all year.

"Six chicken nuggets, large fries and a coke please." 

These are the sweet words we utter when we stand in-front of the McDonalds counter,bursting with happiness.

However, did you know that when you order your meal, you are in-fact benefiting the Queen of England? Well, kind of. 

It has been revealed that the Royal Family actually owns a McDonalds franchise just outside London. 

 

Is that not the most random thing you have ever heard? 

Just when you think it's all crown jewels and castles, BAM – Big Mac! 

It has been revealed that The Crown acquired Banbury Gate Shopping Centre in Oxford when it was built.

The shopping centre has a McDonalds, as well as a Primark and an Ed’s Easy Diner, we're surprised. 

As you may, or may not know, The Crown Estate is technically owned by the Sovereign in the right of the crown (whatever that means!) and the property is estimated to be worth a staggering £2.4 billion with profits going to Lizzie's Treasury.

Imagine owning a Primark AND a McDonalds? What a time to be alive! 

Oh, and one more thing while we have you! Don't forget that you can catch up on all your favourite shows for free for a month right here, so sign up now!

Let's be honest, we don't generally use the word 'vegan' and the term 'fast food' in the same sentence, but that could be set to change if recent reports are anything to go by.

According to Food & Wine, global fast food giant, McDonalds, are keen to entice the vegan community into the MaccyD family by trialing a new creation.

That's right ladies, it's time to meet the McVegan.

Made with a soy patty and served with vegan fries on the side, the new creation will – for the time being – only be served at a branch in Tampere, Finland.

However, it all comes done to public interest, and if the vegan community bite, then we may be welcoming this exciting new creation to our shores.

Welcome to the future of fast food, ladies.
