We’ll…that’s the theory anyway with this release of three new bacon-tactic items at Mcdonalds nationwide. Bacon lovers should get ready for some fun, as of early January 2019 you should see these three new items across the US:
- Big Mac Bacon: A twist on the iconic McDonalds burger that has fifty years under its belt. Three pieces of Applewood smoked bacon top two beef patties, with lettuce, cheese, pickles, Special Sauce and onions rounding out the burger.
- Quarter Pounder Bacon: Much like above, three pieces of Applewood smoked bacon are added to a traditional 1/4 pounder.
- Cheesy Bacon Fries: Regular McD’s fries topped with real cheddar cheese sauce and smoked bacon bits.
Here’s the larger press release directly from McDonald’s
Bacon makes everything better, and the only thing better than bacon is McDonald’s adding it to three of its widely-loved Classic menu items. That’s right bacon aficionados, today McDonald’s unveils the Big Mac® Bacon burger, Quarter Pounder®* Bacon burger and Cheesy Bacon Fries for a limited time. Just when you thought your taste buds couldn’t discover more deliciousness, Bacon on Classics will be available for a limited time starting Wednesday, January 30 at participating restaurants nationwide. The new line-up includes:
While trendy condiments and new food pairings are introduced daily, the love of bacon continues to hold strong. In fact, since 2018, this tasty indulgence has been mentioned more than 17,000 times a day across U.S. online platforms (that’s 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, McDonald’s Manager of Culinary Innovation. “As a bacon enthusiast myself, I’m proud to say that we’ve done right by bacon fans and I can’t wait for our customers to try these Classics with delicious, thick cut Applewood smoked bacon for themselves.”
McDonald’s has introduced a number of new menu items, including fresh beef Quarter Pounder burgers, Buttermilk Crispy Tenders, Triple Breakfast Stacks and café-quality espresso beverages like the McCafé Caramel Macchiato, Cappuccino and Americano. Not even one month into 2019, the addition of bacon to a handful of Classics is our latest step to build a better McDonald’s with more craveable and delicious menu choices than ever before. We can’t wait to show you what’s next.
