In Reply to: McD's Veggie Burger seen: any tasters? posted by Louis on June 12, 1999 at 13:04:51:

: I was passing the MacDonald's on Broadway in the (downtown) Wall Street area of New York City today, and I saw hanging from the McD awning the flapping sign, "Try our Veggie Burger". Questions: Is this just a New York phenomenon or is McD's offering the v-burger in other cities? ? Anybody give the new veg-burger the taste test? Is this not encouraging that the company is responding to (presumably) a consumer demand for veggie burgers? And finally, shouldn;t we encourage this corporate move in what seems to be an encouraging direction?

I don't know about Mc Donalds, but Burger King here have been offering a veggie burger for some time.Come to think of it I have seen a form of veggie burgers being on sale at Mc Donalds every now and then. It looks like compacted vomit. Tell me, when they 'cook' this veggie burger is it not done in the very same microwave oven as all their other 'food' - if so, then it must be contaminated with other meat products, so hardly a vegetarian meal. As ever, it's all PR crap
