McDonald's just announced some exciting news and it's all about bacon!
We already knew the chain is launching Cheesy Bacon Fries nationwide on January 30th, but in addition to that we're getting the Big Mac Bacon burger and Quarter Pounder Bacon burger! The most iconic of burgers are finally getting the most iconic of accompaniments (why didn't this happen sooner?).
Here is how McDonald's describes their trio of new treats:
- Cheesy Bacon Fries: Fries topped with cheddar cheese sauce and smoked bacon bits
- Big Mac Bacon: Three pieces of Applewood smoked bacon with two beef patties, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions on a sesame seed bun
- Quarter Pounder Bacon: Three pieces of Applewood smoked bacon atop a burger, which at most restaurants in contiguous U.S. is made with fresh beef
When asked about their new shift towards bacon, McDoanld's official statement is, "'That’s too much bacon,' said no one ever."
