Bring on the bacon.
Thats the word from McDonalds, which is set to add to bacon to three of its most-popular menu items. The Big Mac Bacon burger, Quarter Pounder Bacon burger and Cheesy Bacon Fries will debut for a limited time at participating restaurants on Jan. 30.
Bacon has long been a favorite delicacy among foodies. According to a news release, the tasty indulgence has been mentioned more than 17,000 times a day across U.S. online platforms since 2018. Thats 740 times an hour.
People love bacon, and they love our iconic Big Mac, fresh beef Quarter Pounder burgers and world famous Fries, so we had to see what would happen if we combined all that tastiness, said Chef Michael Haracz, McDonalds Manager of Culinary Innovation.
As a bacon enthusiast myself, Im proud to say that weve done right by bacon fans and I cant wait for our customers to try these Classics with delicious, thick cut Applewood smoked bacon for themselves.
Here is a closer look at what McDonalds customers can expect from the bacon-blasted offerings.
· Big Mac Bacon: A twist on the iconic fan-favorites 50-year history, three pieces of thick cut Applewood smoked bacon adorn two 100% all beef patties, lettuce, cheese, pickles, Special Sauce and onions on a sesame seed bun.
· Quarter Pounder Bacon: Three pieces of thick cut Applewood smoked bacon added to the hot and fresh beef burger cooked right when you order.
· Cheesy Bacon Fries: McDonalds fries topped with real cheddar cheese sauce and smoked bacon bits.
They’re missing the boat.
They need to put out a “Little Mac” - little “Big Mac” sliders. Man I’d get them a lot. Big Mac’s are too bloated with calories which is why I never get them.
I chose life.
The bacon will be paper thin and will barely cover the pickle which barely covers the 50 cent piece sized “all beef” patties
And you won’t even see that until the bowlful of shredded lettuce falls onto your lap
Bacon Quarter Pounder with Cheese and Bacon Cheese Fries for me please.
Chlesterol city here I come. I felt my heart starting to cavitate just thinking about it.
The 50th anniversary of Big Mac makes me feel old. I remember walking a few blocks with my grade school pals to eat one when they first came out. I thought .45 was and outrageous price when a regular hamburger was .18.
About a decade behind the pack aren’t they?
..... Dammit ..... I hate Mc D’s but this has Bacon so I gotta try it ...... Just Damn .....
LOL ..... A meal for under a Buck ..... Miss those days .....
“Big Macs are too bloated with calories which is why I never get them.”
Never did once did in my life did I factor in calories in what I want to eat. It’s un-American. If it looks awesome to eat, I give my dough. Pretty easy. They should have added steak and eggs in it.
I’ll try one tomorrow!
Oops! January 30th...
The Fail has been strong with McDonalds lately. But this. This ought to work.
I would say put bacon on the Mc Ribb.
It’s Bacon! What can go wrong with bacon except in the muslim enclaves of northern cities?
I rember when tacos or burgers were .17 each. Back when we newbies were making $3/hour. Eh...
