McDonald's new menu includes spicy Sriracha chicken wrap

Long live vegans, vegetarians and flexitarians - McDonald's' McPlant burger is getting an upgrade and getting the full double-decker treatment in 2023. The plant-based burger, aptly called the "Double McPlant," is here to stay for the foreseeable, officially joining the standard menu for Veganuary and beyond. Elsewhere, Maccies has also launched a limited edition pack called Spicy Sriracha Chicken One to look after meat eaters. The grilled chicken is available in crispy or grilled options and also includes spicy sriracha sauce, cucumbers, shredded onions and lettuce. Priced at £3.29 (or £4.89 for a meal), the menu is only available until February 14, so get your skates on before Valentine's Day.

Back to the Double McPlant, according to McDonald's, the vegan patty they developed with Beyond Meat took three years to develop, and since launching the first McPlant in September 2021, they've received a flood of responses to the Double McPlant. needs. "McDonald's made us double the McPlain, you cowards," one fan of the original wrote on Twitter last year. "Being a McDonald's, why don't you let me order a Double McPlant?" asked another. "I feel depressed."

Want to get your hands on a brand new Double McPlants? A burger costs £4.89, while a full meal in British and Irish restaurants costs £6.49. It comes with not one but two vegan patties, but it also comes with a vegan sesame seed bun, mustard, ketchup, vegan sandwich spread, fresh onions, pickles, lettuce, tomato and a dollop of gooey vegan cheese.

In other news from the Golden Arches, the fast food chain is also bringing back Cheesy Garlic Bites (*chef's kiss*) as well as Aero Chocolate and Aero Peppermint McFlurries until February 14th. Sounds delicious.
