White Castle puts a veggie burger on the menu, but don't worry, it's still fattening



NEW YORK — White Castle is offering a vegetarian version of its famous sliders, but they’re not necessarily for dieters.

The hamburger chain says it will offer the Veggie Slider for $0.99 each for a limited time at its 400 locations in 12 states.

The sliders range between 150 and 270 calories, with customers able to choose from three sauces — honey mustard, ranch and sweet Thai. Regular beef sliders range between 140 and 220 calories, depending on the topping, according to White Castle’s website.
