You Can Now Get Tofu McNuggets at McDonald's in Japan

Jul 29, 2014

If the "chicken" in McDonald's "chicken" nuggets freaks you out, head over to Japan to try the franchise's newest snack: Tofu Shinjo Nuggets, which officially go on sale this Wednesday.

They don't include any chicken -- instead, they're made from ingredients including onions, soybeans, carrots and minced fish, a McDonald's spokesperson told the Wall Street Journal. They'll also come with a ginger-flavored sauce.

"Because it isn’t meat, it tastes a bit different. It’s a bit softer," the spokesperson said. "Calorie-wise, it is a bit lower than chicken as well."

They basically look like little patties with some pale bits of vegetables mixed in. Check them out in this advertisement:

Apparently, McDonald's had plans to begin selling this product well before the recent allegations that the chain had been using expired meat.
