Major change to McDonald’s burgers is on the horizon — Here’s what to expect

The fast-food giant McDonald’s, known worldwide for its signature Big Mac and highly addictive fries, has announced a makeover for its classic burgers.

This change aims to improve the taste and texture of the burgers, including the Big Mac, without disturbing the essence of the original recipes.

In an attempt to elevate its classic offerings, McDonald’s plans to introduce significant changes to its Big Macs, McDouble burgers, standard Cheeseburgers, Double Cheeseburgers, and Hamburgers. The transformation will revolve around enhancements to the primary ingredients like the buns, cheese, onions, and the trademark Big Mac sauce.

The fast-food chain’s official statement delineates these changes, which include “softer, pillowy buns” that are toasted to a golden brown, a perfected melting process for the cheese, the introduction of a richer caramelized flavor from white onions, and an increased quantity of the Big Mac sauce.

The modifications, spearheaded by the McDonald’s culinary team, are based on the belief that even minor alterations can lead to substantial taste improvements. They have achieved this by focusing on “hotter, meltier cheese” and modifying the grill settings for superior searing. These changes, they claim, have resulted in burgers so enticing that even the “Hamburglar,” the iconic McDonaldland character, is tempted. Coinciding with the burger makeover, this much-loved character will also be making a return.

Those eager to experience these revamped burgers will not have to wait long. The modified burgers have already made their mark in international markets, including Australia, Canada, and Belgium. Within the United States, the enhanced burgers have debuted in various cities on the West Coast such as Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Sacramento, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Denver, Boise, Tucson, and more. By 2024, these improved burgers are expected to be available in McDonald’s outlets across the entire nation.
