An All-New Snack Is Coming to McDonald’s!

One iconic fast-food chain is going fowl free! (For some menu items, anyway.)

McDonald’s on Disney property!

We already told you about an iconic treat that’s returning soon, but now there’s an entirely NEW menu item coming to McDonald’s. The updated snack is debuting soon, and it might ruffle a few feathers. McDonald’s has been testing the switch in popular menu items in various markets but how well has it been received?

McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets have probably been a household favorite of yours — or your children — for years. Now, the Chicago-based fast food chain is looking at adding a twist on this classic to the menu.


According to an article by APnews, McDonald’s is going to release McPlant Nuggets. The nuggets will be made of peas, corn, and wheat with a tempura batter and will actually be the second plant-based menu offering from the company. This is the latest project that McDonald’s has co-developed with Beyond Meat, a California-based company and maker of plant-based meats. Beyond Meat helped McDonald’s debut McPlant Burgers on their menus in 2021. Beyond Meat has also worked on previous projects with other fast food chains such as KFC and Panda Express and has been distributing to U.S. grocery stores since 2021.

Happy Meal

McDonald’s has said that the availability of the McPlant nuggets and plant-based burgers in future markets will depend on customer demand. European customers have generally been more receptive to McDonald’s plant-based meat products than those in the U.S. The McPlant burger is now a permanent menu item in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Austria, and the Netherlands. Last month, McDonald’s rolled out the Double McPlant burger in the U.K. and Ireland.

Chicken Nuggets

Plans for rolling out their McPlant nuggets to more than 1,400 restaurants in Germany will start soon and follow a limited-time test at nine restaurants in the Stuttgart area in August.  There are also plans to unveil the McPlant burger on menus in Germany next week. However, in the U.S. market, McDonald’s previously tested the McPlant burger last summer and currently has no plans to return it to the markets here in the near future.
