White Castle Debuts Veggie Burger Across Country

National fast-food chain debuts its first vegan burger.

After a successful test run this summer, national fast-food chain, White Castle, has introduced the Veggie Slider. Unveiled just this week, the vegan patty is made by Dr. Praeger's and includes carrots, zucchini, peas, spinach, and broccoli. According to White Castle Vice President Jamie Richardson, "We are committed to asking good questions, listening to our customers, and keeping up with changing tastes by developing new menu items that keep our guests craving and give them more options to feed the whole family." The Veggie Sliders will be cooked on a vegetable-only grill, and separate green spatulas will be used for flipping. For a limited time, the burgers are available for 99 cents at the 400 White Castle locations across the country.
