McDonald’s Great Tastes Of America 2016: Everything you need to know…

So, whats on the menu?

This year we will see just 3 American Burgers for 2 weeks each.

Price: £3.89 (ish) for the burger alone or £5.49 (ish) for a medium meal.

  1. Tennessee Stack (27/04 -10/05): The Tennessee stack, just like all of its american buddies is an awe inspiring double patty, garnished with beechwood bacon, fired onions and cheese.
  2. New York Stack (11/05 – 24/05) The New York Stack is another double patty delight with some traditional NY toppings; cheese, bacon, mustard, ketchup, coleslaw and pickles.
  3. Tex Mex Stack (25/05 – 07/06) The Tex Mex Stack surprisingly another double patty, nachos, spicy cheese and a whole lot of flavour.

So that is the basics, look out for some more in depth coverage coming soon. Personally I am excited about these, 3 new burgers all with a distinctly american feel to them, a reasonable price and enough time (2 weeks each) to actually have a chance to try them all!

Happy eating…

Coolest McDonald’s Ever…

You wouldn’t guess it, In fact, you would barely even believe it, but this intricate and futuristic design is in fact a McDonald’s restaurant!

French Fry Frenzy In The Far East

Well, it seems that Asia has gone slightly French Fry crazy. So called “Potato Parties” have been occurring across McDonald’s branches in Japan, due to the low price of fries.

One Japanese news report said that a group had ordered 60 portions of fries at their “Potato Party”. This group in South Korea, decided to jump on the band wagon and throw their own Potato Party.
