McDonald’s is bringing back a fan favorite and competitor to the popular Big Mac burger. The Double Big Mac — which has four burgers instead of two — returns to the menu for a limited time nationwide.
“We can make it quickly, quickly and safely, but it doesn’t necessarily taste great. That’s why we want to bring quality into our place,” Chris Young, McDonald’s senior director of global menu strategy, told the Wall Street Journal.
The Double Big Mac was first on the menu in 2020, before the pandemic. Once COVID-19 took over, it changed the food industry, forcing the conglomerate to reduce its hours of operation and certain menu items.
“In the United States, in several markets around the world, having a larger burger is an opportunity,” CEO Chris Kempczinski told CNN.
According to the media, the new version of the Double Big Mac will be different from the previous one.
Customers can expect softer buns and each restaurant will “adjust the grill settings for better browning and to improve the way the cheese melts.”
“We think we’ll be able to offer a big, great-tasting burger at a price higher than what customers can get anywhere else,” Kempczinski said.
