McPlant Burger Comes to McDonald’s in North Texas
McDonald’s restaurants in Irving and Carrollton are selling the new McPlant burger. The company is always testing new items and flavors, and this particular test will help them understand how offering a burger with a plant-based patty is received by the public. The McPlant was created to give customers more options in addition to the Big Mac and Quarter Pounder sandwich.
The McPlant includes a plant-based patty co-developed with Beyond Meat exclusive to McDonald’s and made from other plant-based ingredients such as peas, rice and potatoes. The patty is served on a sesame seed bun with tomato, lettuce, pickles, onions, mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard and a slice of American cheese. Vegans will need to remove the mayo and cheese to keep it animal-free and it is cooked on the same grill as meat-based products and eggs.
Location: 8435 N. Belt Line Rd., Irving; and 2151 N. Josey Lane, Carrollton.
