Listen up, plant-based pals. Burger King is releasing a brand new offering just for you, in honour of World Vegan Day.
Yup, those heading to the fast food restaurant between 1st to 6th November will be able to get their vegan chicken order upgraded.
That’s because the burger joint is launching Dirty Vegan Nuggets, taking the humble plant-based nug to the next level.
‘What makes the nuggets dirty?’, you might ask. Well, they’re smothering the portion of nine with smoky BBQ sauce and a heap of crispy onions.
They’re so exclusive that you can’t even walk into a store and order them.
Instead, you’ll be able to bag the new Dirty Vegan Nuggets by using a special code on the Burger King app, or ordering via Deliveroo. They’ll cost £3 on the app and anywhere from £5.49 on Deliveroo.
Much like their normal vegan nuggets, the new addition are a collaboration with The Vegetarian Butcher, using soy and plant protein for “big taste without compromise”.
If these nuggets sound like a bit of you then we’d advise you get on them sharpish, as you’ll only have a week before they’re gone again.
Even if you aren’t vegan, why not give them a try? We can vouch for the fact that Burger King’s plant-based options could satisfy many a carnivore…
The move comes as Burger King Belgium recently announced that one in three of its Whoppers sold were now plant-based – the latest sign that its vegan offerings are making their mark.
Its commitment to offering more vegan options is global, too. They’ve recently launched plant based meat buns over in Japan and specially formulated vegan chicken in Chile.
The chain has pledged to ensure 50 per cent of its menu is plant-based by 2030.
So, who knows, maybe the Dirty Vegan Nuggets could be making a more permanent debut very soon?
