McDonald's UK have announced a fully vegan meal is coming, and we've never been more excited.

Hot off the back of Quorn's veggie wraps and Gregg's vegan sausage roll, McDonald's is getting in on the action with the introduction of their new Veggie Dippers. Made with red pepper, rice, sundried tomato pesto and split peas surrounded by light and crispy breadcrumbs, they've been accredited by The Vegan Society, and sound totally delicious.

To get your hands on a full vegan meal, pair the Veggie Dippers with Vegan Society approved Fries, any of the soft drink options (excluding milkshakes) and sauces. The Veggie Dippers will also be available as a fully vegan Happy Meal, so that's exciting.

Veggie Dippers will be available across the country from 2nd January, and we're already counting down the days. That's one way to cure January blues, right?

Speaking of the exciting new launch, Thomas O’Neill, Head of Food Marketing at McDonald’s UK & Ireland, said: "In the last 12 months we’ve seen an 80% uplift in customers ordering vegetarian options at McDonald’s, so it is time for the brand famous for the dippable McNugget to launch a dippable option for our vegetarian, vegan and flexitarian customers.

"The Veggie Dippers are a delicious addition to our menu and we’re looking forward to seeing what customers make of our first vegan Extra Value Meal and Happy Meal in the New Year."

The Veggie Dippers meal (four red pepper and pesto dippers with light and crispy breadcrumbs, served with fries and a soft drink) will set you back. £4.99. See you in January?
