McDonald’s locations in Sweden are getting a vegan upgrade to their menu. The fast food chain announced it will now start serving bite-sized falafel nuggets in the Scandinavian nation.
The new ‘McFalafel’ meal will be part of a vegan Happy Meal which includes apples, carrots or a small order of fries. The falafel will also come with one of two dips — a yogurt sauce with herbs or a vegan pepper dip.
The falafel nuggets will be made with chickpeas, parsley, garlic and cumin, according to British online news outlet The Independent.
McDonald’s made the announcement with an Instagram post which said, “Have you heard the news? Soon we have #McFalafel on the menu.”
McDonald’s locations across the Nordic region launched the McVegan burger in 2017. The sandwich exceeded industry expectations and added the first vegan option to the McDonald’s locations in Europe.
A recent poll by Animal Rights Sweden revealed that almost one in 10 Swedes now eat a plant-based diet.
