In the Land of Sausages, McDonald's Sells a Veggieburger
If there's one thing that's inescapable in Germany, it's sausage. You don't have to be eating it, but you will find a thousand variations of sausage specialties offered up everywhere from fancy restaurants to kiosks on train platforms. Because of the ubiquity of meat, we were delightfully surprised to find that McDonald's, usually the bringer of sandwiches covered in bacon and mystery sauce, is considering the rest of the population by offering a Veggieburger in German McDs.
Originally introduced in February, the Veggieburger is still touted as "Neu" (new), and is made with potatoes, peppers and carrots. In the ad above, the sauce looks suspiciously like mayonnaise when they could have chosen a healthier option, but Europeans love their mayo.
Know what else you might be surprised to find on the menu of McDonald's in Germany? Beer. Mmmm...a Veggieburger and a beer. Sounds like a balanced meal, right? It might be, since the Veggieburger only packs 180 calories (110 from fat).
