New Daily Double Burger from McDonald’s
The McDonald’s Double Cheeseburger is $1.19. It used to be on the Dollar Menu and was replaced by the McDouble which is the same thing minus one slice of American cheese. So an extra slice of cheese is 19 cents.
The McDonald’s McDouble is described like this:
Take two. A slice of melty American cheese between two 100% beef patties, topped with pickles, onions, ketchup and mustard on a toasted bun.
So if I told you McDonald’s was offering a slightly different version of the McDouble for 89 cents extra and called it the “Daily Double”, what would you expect for your extra 89 cents? The Daily Double is $1.89 and replaces the pickles, onions, ketchup and mustard with lettuce, tomato and mayo. Yup, 89 cents for some shredded iceberg, a single slice of tomato and mayonnaise. Are you kidding me McDonald’s?
I don’t really like the bacon at McDonald’s, but at least bacon would make this “upgrade” seem more like an actual upgrade. To me its a lateral move if anything. Sure the price of tomatoes may be continually rising slightly, but we’re talking one slice of tomato, a smattering of worthless lettuce and mayo. The lack of onions, ketchup and mustard sucks the flavor right out of this burger unfortunately. There’s no extra cost for those condiments so I’d recommend getting a little something other than LTM.
I’m prepared to hear your thoughts readers… is the McDonald’s Daily Double a ripoff or what? I think the McDouble and Double Cheeseburger are good deals by the way, I just think the Daily Double is an insult to consumers.
