They have something called the McBean on the menu in McDonald’s in Sweden, and I think it’s the first veggie burger I’ve seen at a McDonald’s so far.

McBean from McDonald's in Stockholm, Sweden

It’s not bad!  It’s topped with lettuce, tomato, and mayo, and the patty is nice and crispy on the outside.  It’s also surprisingly creamy on the inside, which is a bit bizarre at first — but it grows on you.  The burger itself almost has the consistency of a bean dip; it’s mostly a creamy bean paste, with a few whole beans interspersed throughout.  This seems like it should be off-putting, but the creamy/crispy contrast actually worked reasonably well.

Chili Cheese Tops from McDonald's in Stockholm, Sweden

I also got the Chili Cheese Tops, which were triangular fried nuggets stuffed with cheese and jalapeno peppers.  The cheese was a little bit gluey, but these otherwise weren’t bad.  They were slightly spicy, creamy, and crispy.  I mean, it’s basically fried cheese, and it’s hard to go wrong with that.
