The McDonald’s McFeast Burger: Back From The Dead

Good news McFeast fans! McDonald’s has finally resurrected its dearly-departed McFeast burger — complete with that famously odd sauce. You can get the McFeast from McDonald’s now for $5.85. (That’s today’s lunch sorted!)

Apart from a brief resurgence in 2011 to celebrate its 40th birthday, the McFeast hasn’t been available in Australia since the 1990s, which is a pretty long time between burgers. Like before, the McFeast comes with a beef patty, cheese, tomato, onion, lettuce, pickles and three sauces (mustard, ketchup and “McFeast Deluxe” sauce) in a sesame seed bun.

Something that has changed is the price — a standalone McFeast will set you back $5.85 which is at the upper end of what McDonald’s charges for burgers. Naturally, you’re better off getting it as part of a combo deal with a soft drink and fries.

The McFeast packs in 2030kJ of energy which is about on par with a Big Mac. With that said, the extra salad does makes it slightly healthier if you care about that sort of thing. We’ll be putting the McFeast through the Takeaway Truth ringer later this week. Stay tuned for our verdict! In the meantime, take a trip down memory lane with this 1980 advert. Bless.
