McVeggie Burger $6.10 at McDonald's (Permanent Item)

1914

Not really a deal as it is always going to be here but starting tomorrow Mcdonalds will have McVeggie Burgers, Deluxe Shakes and Frozen Coke NoSugar starting.
McVeggie burgers are not vegetarian/vegan, they contain egg and are cooked in the same vats as chicken!
To my knowledge, this is victoria only right now but could be other states soon but not sure

      is that from HJs?

        Yep. I’m just saying. If anyone wants a comparison. I’ve done it. And McD veggie patties wasn’t very nice at all. I struggled to down it

      I havent tried the veggie burger yet, but, arent the rebel and a veggie burger 2 completely different things?

      •  

        Yes they are. Rebel is beef-style and McVeggie is chicken-style.
        Plus McDonald's and Hungry Jacks have their own style too.

      is the rebel burger cooked on the same grill as the normal whoppers?

      cos thats cheating…

      • +2 votes

        You have to request a clean grill if you are adverse to that. Still not necessarily cheating for those who just don't want to kill cows for a burger I guess.

      Had the rebel whopper yesterday, pretty good. First impressions - the smokey meat flavour is obviously fake when you first start eating it, but by the time you're in the middle it's almost indistinguishable from a real whopper with all the other ingredients mixed in. I'd eat it again.

    Frozen Coke No Sugar

    Whoa game changer.

    • +1 vote

      Yeah, thank god.

      Never understood why frozen drinks are packed with sugar when they just taste like artificial syrup anyway.

      • +2 votes

        My son has type 1 diabetes so is only allowed the sugar free drinks. the kids have a thing that goes in the freezer to make your own slushies at home. It works with all the sugary drinks but we have not been successful with Coke Zero nor Pepsi Max, so there is something about the sugar, or maybe the fake sugar is partly antifreeze!?

          interesting… might be saying something about artificial sweeteners

          • -1 vote

            @Andard: Both of those use sweetener 951, which is likely (studies are always going on….) The worst of them.

            If you're looking to see if its the artifical sweetener, try LA Maxi Ice, it doesnt use 951, so if its that, you'll soon know.

            Also look into the dietrite brand, they're not entirely sugar free but they're extremely low, and so many less chemicals (by percentage)

            •  

              @MasterScythe: Did you neg me because you already tried this with your Son and it didn't freeze also? Please let me know.

      Absolutely, I think 7-11 dropped the ball on this one, they should have struck first with the no sugar slushies!

      • +1 vote

        My local 7-11 in QLD has no sugar slurpees

        • +3 votes

          Same here - although I think they have changed the wording to 'low-sugar'.

          I imagine they've fiddled with the formula somewhat recently to add maybe a little sugar - perhaps because those things were potent laxatives. I can have as many of these new ones as I want, but I remember buying the largest size of their sugar free back when it first came out right before a long car trip… I had to stop at every toilet along the way…

          •  

            @ngengerous: Yep, "less than 5%" is whats in their 'zilched' range.

            Quite an improvement.

            50g per liter, is a lot less than 50g per 600ml bottle.

            •  

              @MasterScythe: Agreed - it's made me choose 7-11 instead of McD or HJ up until now, but if they can offer no sugar at McD I'll be swinging through the drive-thru there instead.

              •  

                @ngengerous: I prefer the idea of a 'mix'.

                Less sugar, and less artificial.

                We know both are potentially bad in excess, so have 'less of both' is my thinking.

            •  

              @MasterScythe: They changed from Zilched to Low Sugar. Is it the same? It tastes and feels very sugary.

    •  

      Been waiting for that.

    So what's the point in making it if it's not vegetarian that's your only market for these lol

    • +2 votes

      Some people only care what they eat, using "the same grill" didnt kill an animal.

      • -3 votes

        The egg industry is responsible for the slaughter of billions of chickens. These contain egg so your argument is invalid.

        • +3 votes

          I prefer to eat vegetarian food, but still consume meat. Flexitarian if you will. I guess I'm in their target market, so shaibankek your argument is invalid. Also vegos eat eggs, vegans don't.

          But really, this vegetarian on the same grill shit is a bizarre move.

          •  

            @jesseboy89: How is my argument invalid? My response was to the guy who said "using the same grill" didnt kill an animal." There's egg in the patty which means animals were killed so having the idea that "cooking the patty on the same grill didn't kill anything" is pointless.

            • +1 vote

              @shaibankek2: Cooking on the same grill doesn't kill an animal though.

              And eggs don't kill an animal. But you should be asking if it's free range (like the current rspca campaign). Unless you think that egg = animal. Perhaps you think zygote = human and abortion is bad?

              I'm trying to do the right thing and eat far less meat. Don't put me out for the slaughter with your shit.

              • -3 votes

                @jesseboy89: You're missing the point. I'm not saying cooking on the same grill doesn't kill an animal. I'm saying it's pointless to have that ideology stuck in your head when it's in direct response towards a patty that has egg in. You're just being ignorant at best.

                •  

                  @shaibankek2: Eggs are vegetarian. Animals are not killed. The eggs are unfertilised. This is vegetarian.

                  It's just a wierd product because many vegetarians will not like the fact it's cooked on meat grills.

                  •  

                    @jesseboy89: Male chicks are all slaughtered in the egg industry because they're unable to produce eggs. Additionally there's all the egg laying hens that are kept in confined spaces in disgusting conditions where they're susceptible to disease etc. Once they're at the point where they can't lay anymore they're unprofitable and are slaughtered. So don't you lecture me about how there's no death involved. You're just being ignorant.

          Vegetarian food may or may not contain eggs. Vegetarian food that contains eggs doesn’t make it any less vegetarian.

      With this they only need to get some frozen veggie patties, whereas to make it vegan they need to get vegan condiments, vegan cheese, a vegan patty etc. Much easier and cheaper for them to just do the bare minimum to look like they are doing something.

      • +2 votes

        Making a frozen veggie patty without egg really isn't difficult. If they had any brains whatsoever they'd at least offer a vegan patty that's cooked in the chip fryer like what Hungry Jacks offers.

        •  

          They are selling vegetarian burgers and not vegan burgers. Foods that contain eggs may still be considered vegetarian food.

      Eh who cares. It's not actually contributing to the harm of that chicken that was in that chicken burger. Same with cooking a burger on the same grill. Some people don't care if there's contamination.

      Depends on the type of vegetarian whether to include eggs.

      • +2 votes

        Usually thats vegan.

        Taking unfertalised eggs out of my chickens nesting box (on a 6 acre property) so that foxes and snakes dont 'wander in', isn't very cruel.

        Nothing against vegans and vegetarians, but when you can 100%confirm its cruelty free, i dont get it.

        •  

          Quick preface: none of this is personal attack or my personal view on the matter.

          It's generally the breeding process that would be considered not vegan in this situation. How many chickens were forced to create those chickens giving you the eggs? If you have rescued these chickens then you might just be fine in some vegans eyes. Then again you are keeping them as a pet…

          •  

            @Holty07: I dont think building raised boxes to sleep in, and letting them free in the yard is really 'a pet', they can leave if they want.

            Just so happens, chickens seem to stay where the food is.

      There are different types of vegetarians out there. Some don't eat it for religious reasons and for those even using the same grill makes it non-vegetarian.

      There's egg in it so how exactly is this relevant at all?

      •  

        I'm saying about how they keep trying to please their customers and each time they do something they expect more.

        These vegetarian/vegan activists want them cooked on a separate grill. What they don't realise is how prohibitively expensive and inefficient that is. Even so, it's going to be just centimetres away from meat, and meat gives off an aroma while cooking. What's next?

  • +2 votes

    It is 100% vegetarian but not vegan as has egg in it. How it's cooked is irrelevant.
