Veggie Dippers are available in McDonald's from today

Great news for all the vegans of the world!

This time of the year is generally associated with positive change.

It could be that you're doing a dry January, or you're going to hit the gym. Or maybe it's a change in the diet.

Maybe you'll try going vegan!

And if you do, then we've got some damn good news for you.

As of today (2 January), McDonald's has launched its first fully vegan meal, consisting of brand new Veggie Dippers.

The new Veggie Dippers, made with red pepper, rice, sundried tomato pesto and split peas surrounded by light and crispy breadcrumbs, have been accredited by The Vegan Society.

Thomas O’Neill, Head of Food Marketing at McDonald’s UK & Ireland, said: "In the last 12 months we’ve seen an 80% uplift in customers ordering vegetarian options at McDonald’s, so it is time for the brand famous for the dippable McNugget to launch a dippable option for our vegetarian, vegan and flexitarian customers.

"The Veggie Dippers are a delicious addition to our menu and we’re looking forward to seeing what customers make of our first vegan Extra Value Meal and Happy Meal in the New Year."

That's lunch sorted for today so.

This comes on the same day that KFC launched a brand new vegan burger in Ireland.
