McDonald’s Now Sells Chicken Big Macs And Cheeseburger Fries

McDonald’s is redesigning some of its classic menu items with new fast food mashups. For a limited time, you will be able to buy Cheeseburger flavoured fries. In addition, the Chicken Big Mac has become an official part of the menu. That’s today’s lunch sorted, then.

The Chicken Big Mac and Cheeseburger Shaker Fries are being billed as reinventions of McDonald’s most iconic products. Savvy fast food aficionados will already be familiar with the Chicken Big Mac – it’s been possible to substitute beef patties for chicken as far back as we can remember – but the Cheeseburger Shaker Fries are an intriguing new addition.

As the name implies, Cheeseburger Shaker Fries are regular French fries bundled with a sachet of a Cheeseburger-flavoured seasoning which customers shake inside the supplied bag. We’re curious to see what the dominant flavour is. Pickle? Ketchup? Cheese? Beef? Needless to say, we’ll be conducting an extensive taste test later in the week. Here’s the full spiel from the Golden Arches itself:

Secretly enjoyed by customers for many years, the delicious Chicken Big Mac combines everything Aussies love about the Big Mac and McChicken, 100% Aussie chicken, crisp iceberg lettuce, signature cheese, onions, pickles, topped with the iconic Big Mac special sauce, and all between a toasted sesame seed bun.

One of the most in-demand and regularly requested items from Macca’s fans, Shaker Fries, have been reinstated with a brand new Cheeseburger flavour. Macca’s legendary French fries have been combined with the classic flavour of the Cheeseburger – a combo of beef, onions, pickle, ketchup, mustard and cheese.

Jenni Dill, CMO of McDonald’s Australia says, “We love to offer our customers new and exciting products to try, the Chicken Big Mac and Cheeseburger Shaker Fries celebrate the popularity of some our most iconic products with a mix up we are certain people will enjoy!”

The Chicken Big Mac and Cheeseburger Shaker Fries will be available in Restaurants and Drive-Thru nationwide from 31st May and for a limited time only.

Look our for a taste test, coming soon!
