Veggies, rejoice.

There was a time when being a vegetarian in Ireland meant sacrifice and a lot of tupperware lunches.

But veggies no longer need to miss out on the wonders of a cheeky drive-thru or a quick junk food fix, with vegan and vegetarian fast food spots popping up in their droves.

McDonald’s Ireland is the latest establishment to join the craze. The fast-food haven has now introduced the first ever Vegetarian Happy Meal, along with a new Spicy Veggie Wrap on the main menu.

The two new additions are in response to the growing customer demand for more meat-free meal choices.

Here's what's new to the menu.

  • NEW Happy Meal® Veggie Wrap – 209kcal: made with a Red Pesto Goujon with Tomato Ketchup and Shredded Lettuce wrapped in a soft, toasted tortilla.

Duncan Cruttenden, Menu Director at McDonald’s UK & Ireland said:

“Our commitment is to offer great food, great choice and a great experience to our customers and we are constantly asking them how we can evolve and improve. 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.”

McDonald’s invited parents and their children to select the final flavour. The discerning tasters selected the delicious Red Pesto Goujon wraps, which have been accredited by the Vegetarian Society.

The ingredients are all also dairy free.

Whether you're a die-hard vegetarian or just want to eat a little less meat, this is a quick and easy option.
