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.

The chain, based in Columbus, Ohio, says the sliders are made with Dr. Praeger's veggie patty and include carrots, zucchini, peas and spinach. A spokesman, Todd Hutchins, said they were tested this past summer in New York and New Jersey.
