Burger King has launched a brand new vegan version of their chicken Royale burger in stores today.
The burger has been in development under the watchful eye of the Vegan Society for years and has attracted lots of speculation and buzz. Burger King are already calling it the "crowning glory" of the restaurant's plant-based menu.
Consisting of a crispy coated, plant-based chicken patty, created by The Vegetarian Butcher, the vegan Royale is topped with crispy iceberg lettuce, creamy vegan mayo and crowned with a toasted sesame seed bun.
Strict cooking processes, which ensure it's kept completely separate from meat, dairy and egg products, have earned the new burger Vegan Society certification.
The vegan Royale costs £4.79 and a meal costs £6.79.
The burger joins the plant-based whopper as part of Burger King's new range of burgers free of animal products.
The Plant-Based Whopper is made up of a flame-grilled, soy-based patty, topped with tomatoes, fresh cut lettuce, vegan mayo, pickles, a swirl of ketchup, and sliced onions on a soft sesame seed bun. It is officially classified as plant-based and is priced at £4.79, whilst a meal is £6.79.
That's not all folks - Mondays just became a lot more interesting with the introduction of 'Meat Free Mondays' nationwide for all Burger King app users. This means that from today (26th April), at the start of every week, those with the Burger King UK app can get their hands on the new meat-free burger for just £1.99.
Many other great deals on the app will also have the option to go meat-free this month, meaning fans will have the chance to grab the Vegan Royale for as little as £2.49.
Ericka Durgahee, Marketing Manager at The Vegan Society ,said: "We're delighted to be working closely with Burger King. It's fantastic to see that not only are they expanding their range to cater to vegan customers, but are going above and beyond by offering them delicious options that have been certified by the highly-trusted and sought-after Vegan Trademark."
We're literally spoilt for choice!
