M​cDonald's is entering into the ever-growing and popular world of plant-based food, beginning with a P.L.T.

P​.L.T stands for Plant, Lettuce and Tomato according to the chain, which claims it's very similar to its other burgers, but made with a Beyond Meat patty.

A​ccording to Buzzfeed, Beyond Meat has partnered with other big brands including KFC on its Beyond Chicken, and Subway on its Beyond Meatball. The meat-free movement is reaching far and wide these days.

The new vegan M​cDonald's burder will appear in store on Monday in 28 locations in Canada, and will hopefully spread its way around the world before we know it.

W​hat are your thoughts on the P.L.T?

    • In Canada, A&W started selling Beyond burgers about a year and a half ago. I went to get one right away to try it out. They asked me if I wanted cheese or bacon. I'm not a vegan or anything so I'm not opposed to those items on my sandwich but when she...

  • The Big Vegan TS has been around in Germany for a couple of months now at McDonald's. And while I was excited at first, it quickly became as boring as all other burgers at McDonald's (stopped eating them way before going plant-based). BUT the Big Vegan is not made with a Beyond pattie - so that's an entirely different story!

  • Yeah, the only way I'm having a plant pattie is if someone feeds it to a cow.

    • Not in a pattie, but I've had plant-beef before, at a nice vegan restaurant. It wasn't awful, but it's a no from me.

      It's like paleo/gluten-free chocolate cake, or Aldi's Wheat Bix for that matter. Everyone says it tastes the same, when it...

  • Growing up in the '70s, in Australia , a salad roll, which was tomato, lettuce, onion, beetroot on a hamburger bun, was a very popular school tuckshop food item.

    This McDs P.L.T. is very similar, so that's fine by me. It makes a nice light lunch.
