After suspending purchases from a Chinese supplier over an expired meat scandal, McDonald's is offering tofu McNuggets at its Japan locations.
The Tofu Shinjo Nuggets include "onions, soybeans, carrots, and minced fish," with a side of ginger sauce, and will be available starting Wednesday until late September.
"Because it isn't meat, it tastes a bit different. It's a bit softer," a McDonalds spokesperson told The Wall Street Journal. "Calorie-wise, it is a bit lower than chicken as well." She also noted that Japan has been planning to introduce the new nuggets since before the scandal in China was revealed.
