McDonald’s launches a new meat-free burger, this week.  It’s called the “P.L.T” – which stands for plant, lettuce and tomato.  But, for now, it’s only available at 28 McDonald’s locations in Ontario, Canada.

The test run will gauge customer demand.  It’s been a huge success for Burger King, which often sells out of the “Impossible Whopper,” here, in the Chicago area.  That’s a pea-based “burger,” from Impossible Foods.

The meatless patty in the P.L.T. sandwich is developed by Beyond Meat.  The announcement from McDonald’s comes on the eve of World Vegetarian Day, which kicks off October as Vegetarian Awareness month.

Just this past week, the Chicago Bears offered samples of their newest stadium food for Soldier Field:  a plant-based burger made locally, by LeafLite.

I think they should consider calling it a “Bearger.”  Maybe not.  LOL  ~ Mo
