McDonald's fans have hit out after the fast food giant introduced six new menu items but still have not brought back vegetarian options.
Veggie Dippers and Happy Meal Veggie Dippers have been temporarily removed from the menu due to them not meeting "high standards".
The Vegetable Deluxe burger is also not being served while McDonald's runs a reduced menu to ensure they are Covid-safe.
Furious customers labelled McDonald's a 'joke' after it meant that vegetarian customers have been left with no main menu options and only a choice of sides such as salad, fruit, a bag of carrots or chips to eat.
But now they've infuriated fans even more by introducing six new menu items with only two food items suitable for vegetarians.
From October 7 you'll be able to buy a spicy quarter pounder with Cheese, a q uarter pounder deluxe, a McChicken BLT, n acho cheese wedges, n acho cheese wedges (sharebox) and a s alted caramel latte.
One person tweeted: "So they can take veggie meals off the menu but add more meat meals."
Another wrote: "Love that @McDonaldsUK can add 4 new options to their menu but fail to add back a veggie option."
Somebody else said: "It’s crazy! I went into a Mac Donald’s today no fish fingers for my son or even veggie dippers, but they adding different burgers on."
Explaining the reason behind the missing veggie dippers, a McDonald's spokesperson said: "Due to an issue resulting in some of our Veggie Dippers having not met the high standards that we expect from our products, we have temporarily removed them from our menu.
"We are working hard to return our Dippers to the menu as quickly as possible, and apologise to our customers for any disappointment caused.”
Fans begged McDonald's to bring back the normal menu before adding "fancy additions".
Someone tweeted: "I would rather they bring back the sausage and egg bagel than bring in new stuff people haven't asked for."
Another fan wrote: "So can add all new items but yet can’t add all the original items to breakfast & main meals – don’t make sense."
Explaining the reduced menu McDonald's said: "In order to allow for social distancing, we will have fewer employees in our kitchens and service areas and to help our smaller teams, we are offering a limited menu."
