This week, McDonald’s added the vegan McFalafel to its locations across Sweden. The option is comprised of vegan falafel nuggets (made with chickpeas, parsley, garlic, and cumin) that can be ordered with a vegan pepper dip on the adult menu or as part of a Happy Meal—which features four falafel nuggets with a choice of carrots, apples, or small French fries, and vegan beverages such as juice or a small soda. The new menu option comes after the successful launch of the McVegan burger at McDonald’s locations across the Nordic region. In October 2018, McDonald’s added the vegan burger to the menu of one location in Tampere, Finland before expanding the option to all of its locations in Finland and Sweden in December—where it sold 150,000 vegan burgers within one month. McDonald’s Sweden is not the only region where vegan Happy Meals are now available. Earlier this month, McDonald’s UK partnered with The Vegetarian Society to debut a vegan wrap filled with meatless chicken that can be ordered in a Happy Meal, and a similar adult version, the Spicy Veggie Wrap.
