McDonald’s is making big changes to The Big Mac for a limited time in its restaurants across the United States in early 2017 to test the market. The ingredients of The Big Mac will basically stay the same but McDonald’s will also sell a miniature version called Mac Jr. and The Grand Mac. The Mac Jr. will consist of a 1/6-pound patty and the Grand Mac, that will use two 1/6-lb. hamburger patties. The original Big Mac is served with two 1/10-lb. patties.
The Big Mac will still include their signature “two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun.” Whether the new McDonalds Big Mac sizes are permanently added to the regular menu will depend on sales during the early 2017 promotion. “If they’re crushing it, we’ll keep it rolling,” said McDonald’s Chef Mike Haracz.
“The Big Mac is a legend and a great-tasting burger with hints of pickle relish, mustard, garlic and onions,” McDonald’s Chef Mike Haracz according to the Business Insider. “We listened to our customers who told us they wanted different ways to enjoy the one-of-a-kind Big Mac taste. The classic combination of ingredients remains timeless and customers around the world continue to enjoy its signature taste.”Disclosure: this article may contain affiliate links.
