Burger King may not have a vegan patty anymore...<br><br><br><br>
Their website says they use these:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.seeveggiesdifferently.com/product_detail.aspx?family=363&id=323" target="_blank">http://www.seeveggiesdifferently.com...ily=363&id=323</a><br><br><br><br>
Here's the site page saying what patty they use. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> I'm so sad now!!<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.bk.com/#menu=2,42,-1" target="_blank">http://www.bk.com/#menu=2,42,-1</a><br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> SAY IT ISN'T SO!!! I was under the impression their burger was vegan. Sigh.

Their veggie burgers have always been Morningstar Farms, as far as I know.<br><br><br><br>

I remember discussing veggie burger options with a very very strict vegan friend (lifelong vegan) and she was loving their burger, and said she'd looked into it and it was DEFINITELY vegan. I've let her know what I just stumbled across too. I think it used to be a Boca burger of some kind?<br><br><br><br>
In any case, that throws them out as an occasional stop on the highway. Whee.

When the BK Veggie was first released (as part of an agreement with PETA), the patty was Vegan, and the sandwich was mostly Vegan, provided you asked for no cheese, no mayo, except for a little trace dairy in the bun.<br><br><br><br>
They changed their formulation like 6 months or a year after the product launch.

Oh, I don't know many (any) ethical vegans who'll be eating at Burger King any time soon, but vegetarian and vegan options are at least a step in the right direction. Anything that helps to combat the perception that Veg* diets are "too hard" to actually practice is a good thing, IMO.

I'm preparing for a trip, in a car, all day each way, this next month. I have 2 kids, they need somewhere to eat and play half way through that trip. There are only so many options. BK was looking good, because of that sandwich and the play area stuff. (we're talking in the middle of nowhere, Nebraska. There are no options)<br><br><br><br>
Sigh sigh sigh. I'm not at all the eat out type. But sometimes you have to.

I cant even go to BK here, because they use beef fat oil in all their food, including the vege bugers (the onion rings were fryed in beef oil) its just gross, Ive never really liked BK

Where do you live? I thought only McDonald's had blatantly non-veg fries, though someone said that Wendy's fries theirs in the same oil as the fried chicken patties. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/spew.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":spew:"><br><br><br><br>

I can't believe that any vegetarian, let alone vegan would trust the "veggie burger" at a place like Burger King. Sure I might trust the source ingredients, but to trust that it is prepared in a way that I'd approve of (that is, not drug through the grease of the million beef burgers before it) is beyond my abilities. I'd have to watch it through the entire process, and even then I'd be dubious.

You could try calling the town council office of the towns you'll be passing through around lunchtime. The clerk is usually someone who's lived in the town for years, and should be able to tell you where the parks with playgrounds are.<br><br><br><br>
Planning is your friend. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> At the park, you can pull our your homemade grub and feel no pressure to buy over-processed junk because you want to use a play area.<br><br><br><br>
I don't know what to tell you if it rains. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

You can also google all the restaurants in the towns your driving through. Then you can call them up and see what they could make you.

That could work... if the price were right, and the play area were not a factor. I don't know of too many slow-food or family-style-non-fast-food restaurants that have an indoor playground. They'd still have to look for a park or something.

The veggie burgers at Burger King are microwaved, so they're not cooked on the same grill as the beef burgers. I don't eat there often, but when I'm travelling, it's nice to know that the option exists. Besides, it's sometimes good to eat at "normal" restaurants to prove to the omnis that it's possible to go veg and still be a "normal" person (whatever that means).<br><br><br><br>

I hear McDonalds has a couple of good salads that are vegan if your order it without chicken. Makes for a pretty light lunch and it involves eating at McDonalds but they do have those indoor playgrounds.

Subway is your friend. Also bring a cooler full of food and some easy snacks.</div>

Oh also I think Taco Bell can be vegan if you omit the cheese and sour cream. I don't know if they have a playground though.</div>

I've never seen one that did.
