It seems as if McDonald’s gets tired of their food, after a certain period of time. Although people drive-thru on a daily basis and purchase from the well-known menu, the fast food giant always comes up with a change. And majority of the time, customers aren’t for it. There have been a lot of items taken away that fans of McDonald’s miss. One great example would be the original hot apple pie. Even with that being said, McDonald’s is returning with another alternative.
In 1967, the Big Mac was introduced to the world. Nearly 50 years later, Mickey D’s wants to try a new sauce. One of the ingredients that drew people to the iconic sandwich was the sauce. We knew it was like a thousand island dressing, but not quite. Whatever it actually consisted of, it made a damn good burger. Now, we have a sriracha sauce.
There’s one good thing. The original Big Mac will remain. It isn’t completely gone, like the hot apple pie. The new sauce is optional. So if you want to take a walk on the ‘wild side’, then experiment with your Big Mac and determine if you like it. They’ve always said that change is good. Currently, there is a select market receiving this new line of sauce, called the Sriracha Mac sauce. 126 different locations in Columbus, OH are testing the new recipe. The ‘limited time only’ sauce will be removed, after December 31st. Depending on the response from the customers in Columbus, the new Big Mac could eventually become available at every location.
Mike Haracz, a McDonald’s Chef recently stated in a press release, “There’s no doubt that the Big Mac is a legend and a great-tasting burger. We’re always trying new creations and we wanted to innovate with an on-trend flavor, like Sriracha to give our customers in Columbus a new and exciting taste.”
