Food News: McDonald’s Angus Burger
Eight years. That is how long it has been since McDonald’s released a new burger. Back in 2001 Mickey D’s introduced the Big N’ Tasty which wasn’t the hit the execs were hoping for. Fast Forward to 2009, McDonald’s is set to debut another big burger, the McDonald’s Angus Burger. Three varieties of the new burgers are being tested in certain markets. Each is a 1/3 pound of 100% Angus beef served on a sesame seed roll and comes with a $3.99 price tag. The new burgers are:
- Deluxe – The classic cheeseburger topped with lettuce, tomato, pickles and red onions.
- Mushroom & Swiss – Topped with sautéed mushrooms and swiss cheese.
- Bacon & Cheese – Topped with bacon and red onion.
The new large sandwiches are set to compete with other oversized fast food burgers, such as Burger King’s Steakhouse Burger and Carl’s Jr’s Kentucky Bourbon Burgers. Unfortunately we will have to wait until late summer for a nationwide release to see how it stacks up with the other premium fast food burgers on the market. Stay Tuned!
