A&W recently released nuggets made by Lightlife – the first fast food chain to do so in Canada. You’ll find them only in Ontario and BC at the moment – they’re still feeling out whether they’ll be popular and will release them elsewhere accordingly.

For 6 pieces is $5.99 and 10 pieces is $8.99.

The nuggets are made of peas, wheat flour and fava beans. Unlike their plant based burger patties, these ones I have to say are not my favourite. I find that there is still a bit of the grit from the peas and beans in the mixture that I’m not a huge fan of.

They offer two plant-based dipping sauces with them – barbecue or sweet and sour.

An important note if you are strictly vegetarian or vegan is that their nuggets are cooked in the same fryer as their chicken.

Overall, I wouldn’t recommend these. I would go with one of their Beyond Meat items instead.
