(UNDATED) – 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.
McDonald’s unveils the Big Mac® Bacon burger, Quarter Pounder®* Bacon burger and Cheesy Bacon Fries for a limited time. The new food items will be available for a limited time beginning on Wednesday, January 30.
The new line-up includes:
Big Mac Bacon: An exciting twist on the iconic fan-favorite’s 50-year history, three pieces of thick cut Applewood smoked bacon adorn two 100 percent 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 deliciously juicy fresh beef burger cooked right when you order.
Cheesy Bacon Fries: McDonald’s World Famous Fries® topped with real cheddar cheese sauce and smoked bacon bits.
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.
