The McDonald’s Big Mac — now with 66 percent more beef!
Starting next year, the world’s largest restaurant chain will offer both larger and smaller versions of its iconic burger for a limited time.
A classic Big Mac has two beef patties, three pieces of bread, two slices of cheese, special sauce, lettuce, pickles, and onions. Its new smaller cousin, the Mac Jr., will contain a single patty, while customers who can’t get enough will be able to feast on the Grand Mac, featuring 66 percent more meat than a Big Mac, plus an extra slice of cheese and a larger bun.
Hundreds of McDonald’s restaurants in Dallas/Ft. Worth and central Ohio have already tested the new Macs, and certain locations in Florida and the Pittsburgh area will begin serving them in mid-November. The rest of the country will have to wait until early 2017 to sink their teeth into the burgers.
McDonald’s Chef Mike Haracz said the decision to offer new Macs stemmed from customer feedback.
“We listened to our customers who told us they wanted different ways to enjoy the one-of-a-kind Big Mac taste,” Haracz told Business Insider. “The classic combination of ingredients remains timeless and customers around the world continue to enjoy its signature taste.”
Here are some of the craziest McDonald’s dishes from around the world:
- Spicy nacho cheese wedges (United Kingdom)
- Pumpkin spice fries (Japan)
- Curly crab fries (Singapore)
- Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry (Australia, Canada, New Zealand, U.K.)
