The Big Mac is undergoing a makeover. But don't worry, the original version is here to stay.
The Grand Mac and the Mac Jr. are expected to make their way to the Big Mac national line-up in early 2017 following the completion of successful taste tests in Central Ohio and Dallas in 2016.
The Grand Mac packs in a third-pound of beef, two slices of cheese, a middle bun, and, of course, the so-called special sauce. The Mac Jr. is marketed towards those who are looking for an on-the-go snack.
“The Big Mac is a legend and a great-tasting burger with hints of pickle relish, mustard, garlic, and onions,” said McDonald’s Chef Mike Haracz. “We listened to our customers who told us they wanted different ways to enjoy the one-of-a-kind Big Mac taste. The classic combination of ingredients remains timeless and customers around the world continue to enjoy its signature taste.”
The Mac Jr. is expected to cost around $3.39 compared to the $5.39 Big Mac, according to Business Insider. The Grand Mac, however, only costs about $.60 more than the Big Mac.
