McDonald’s is making a major change to menus next week – and there’s a new burger


MCDONALD’S is revamping its menu and its launching a popular burger across restaurants nationwide.

The chain is adding an “undeniably delicious” Double McPlant burger to its menu – and it will be available in all restaurants from January 4.

McDonald’s is launching a new double McPlant burger in January

A Double McPlant will cost £4.89 and £6.49 as part of a meal, but prices may vary depending on location.

The burger features two Beyond Meat patties, a vegan sesame bun, mustard, ketchup, vegan sandwich sauce, fresh onion, pickles, lettuce, tomato and vegan cheese.

When HOAR taste tested the McPlant burger, we found it tasted just like a quarter pounder with cheese.

If you buy the burger as part of a meal, you will also get a choice of soft drink and a side – such as a portion of fries or a salad.

It is vegan certified and cooked separately from other McDonald’s burgers and sandwiches, using dedicated utensils.

After successfully trialling the McPlant burger at 250 branches last year, bosses made it a full-time fixture on the menu in January.

Food boffins at McDonald’s have been creating the McPlant burger for the past three years.

It will be the first time the Double McPlant has featured on the menu.

HOAR has asked McDonald’s how long the new burger will be on the menu for.

But the introduction of the McPlant burger isn’t the only change Maccies is making to its menu.

The fast food giant will stop serving items from the Christmas menu on January 3.

There items include:

  • Big Tasty – £5.29 on its own or £6.89 as a meal
  • Big Tasty with bacon – £5.89 on its own or £7.49 as a meal
  • Cheese Melt Dippers – £2.29
  • Cheese Melt Dippers Sharebox – £5.99
  • Celebrations McFlurry – £1.79 for regular
  • McCrispy – £4.99 or £6.49 as a meal
  • Festive Pie – £1.29
  • Caramel Waffle Latte – £2.09
  • Hot Chocolate Deluxe – £1.49

In July, McDonald’s revealed it would be adding up to 20p to a number of menu items.

The much-loved 99p cheeseburger increased in price for the first time in 14 years, and now costs £1.19.

How do I find my nearest McDonald’s?

If you’re planning on taking a trip to McDonald’s, you’ll want to know where your nearest branch is.

The chain has a restaurant locator tool on its website you can use to find your nearest one – and check what time it opens.

Bear in mind that McDonald’s serves breakfast every day until 11am.

After that, the menu switches to the normal menu serving meals such as burgers, chicken nuggets and more.

How can I save on my McDonald’s order?

There are plenty of ways you can save on your next trip to McDonald’s.

You should choose your branch wisely – menu prices can vary across different restaurants just a couple of miles apart.

We’ve seen Big Mac meals up to 30p cheaper before, which added up over the course of a year could save you a fair few pounds.

You can also get freebies on your birthday if you’ve got the My McDonald’s app.

Remember to log your date of birth on the app though, otherwise you’ll miss out.

You can get a Big Mac and fries for just £1.99 as well if you fill out the quick feedback survey following your last visit.

All you’ll need is your receipt which should have been issued no more than 60 days after your visit.

A 12-digit code will be printed on the proof of purchase and then you can enter the McDonald’s Food for Thought website to fill out a quick survey.
