McDonald's to add three new Quarter Pounders
by Meat&Poultry Staff
OAKBROOK, Ill. – The McDonald's Quarter Pounder hamburger is about to come with more than cheese. The restaurant chain announced May 13 plans to add a trio of new Quarter Pounder hamburgers to its menu in June. The decision comes as the chain is attempting to make room for new products and play up its value menu offerings. The chain’s Angus burgers, some of its most expensive menu items, were recently removed from the menu as part of the new campaign.
Among the new offerings are: The Quarter Pounder Habanero Ranch (with white cheddar, bacon, lettuce, tomato and a habanero-ranch sauce); the Quarter Pounder Deluxe (with American cheese, tomato, lettuce, onion, pickles, mayonnaise and mustard); and the Quarter Pounder Bacon and Cheese (with American cheese, bacon, onion, pickles, ketchup and mustard).
All Quarter Pounders, including the original, will feature a new bun with 8 grams of whole grains. McDonald’s also recently debuted the Egg White Delight, a yolkless version of the Egg McMuffin, on an English muffin with 8 grams of whole grains.
