Launches You'll Love: Burger King Adds Vegan Nuggets To Its Menu
by Laura Barns
Burger King UK is to launch vegan nuggets nationwide from the first week of January 2022, as the fast food chain evolves its meat-focused menu to cash in on the booming popularity of plant-based diets.

The Burger King vegan nuggets have been certified as 100% vegan by the Vegan Society and were created in collaboration with The Vegetarian Butcher, containing soy and plant proteins.
The burger chain - originally best known for its ‘flame-grilled’ meat patties - is already forging ahead with its vegan offering.
It introduced its plant-based Whopper in January, 2020, and then its faux-chicken Vegan Royale in April, 2021.
“After years of development, it’s great to be able to say we are the first fast-food restaurant to bring such a product to our customers, which delivers the same tasting experience as its meat counterpart," said a Burger King spokesperson.
For anyone who wants to try the nuggets, whether you are a vegan or not, they are available in a six-piece box, nine-piece box, and a 20-piece share box. Each order also comes with a Vegan Society certified Sweet Chilli Dip.
