Why eat multiple Chicken McNuggets when you can eat ONE Chicken McNugget that’s the size of a basketball? Making a giant McNugget is just common sense people. The only real question is do you make your nugget McDonald’s or Wendy’s style?
See how it was done in the video below. [click to continue…]
McDonald’s Italy is banking on the public’s love of Nutella with their new “Sweety with Nutella”—which is essentially a bun with Nutella on it. Mind blown.
The offering is part of the McCafe menu and, despite its burger-like appearance and packaging, is meat-free. Apparently, the burger is baked with the Nutella inside, which gives it a tasty crust at the edges.
Naturally, the news has been spreading across social media because anything involving Nutella always does. Unfortunately, none of that chatter involves talk of bringing the burger to the states, but (protip!) you can always get a brioche bun, slather it in Nutella and bake it for a bit. Mind blown.
Take a closer look at the Sweety with Nutella below. [click to continue…]
McDonald’s is about to add two additional Big Mac sizes to their menu. The Grand Mac and The Mac Jr. are slated to debut next year after being successfully tested in Ohio and Dallas. The Grand Mac offers two larger 1/3 lb beef patties served on a bigger sesame seed bun, while the Mac Jr. is a single patty version of the burger without the staple middle bun.
The Grand Mac will sell for $4.89, while the Mac Jr. will go for between $2.39 and $2.59 depending on location. The trial period will run from January to June 6, 2017 at select US locations. Whether it will expand internationally remains to be seen—though Japan already has this territory covered.
McDonald’s will attempt to make up for lost time and get in on the mobile ordering game starting next year.
McDonald’s previously tested mobile ordering technology in countries like Austria and Thailand as well as 22 locations near Columbus, Georgia. A full roll out of the system will begin in the US and a number of international markets starting in 2017. Customers will order food through the app and scan a QR code, which automatically charges the customer via a card linked to their account.
Up to 25,000 locations are expected to make use of the system by 2018.

A Queens, NY Burger King reached a new level of Halloween-themed trolling glory by disguising its sign, and the restaurant itself, as a ghost named “McDonald’s”.
In addition to taking a shot at their biggest rival and their lack of flame-grilled beef, they also succeeded in gaining a ton of free advertising while bringing pleasure to all the BK purists.
Check out the hilarity in its full glory below. [click to continue…]
Okay, maybe they’re not working the fryer, but Yokai Watch‘s Jibanyan, Komasan, and Komajiro spent time behind the counter and on the line in a Japanese McDonald’s to promote the upcoming McDonald’s 2017 Yokai Watch Calendar event.
Lucky for everyone, Famitsu was on hand to take pictures.
Komasan and Komajiro look a little sad. Have a Coke and a smile, guys! Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
A few years ago we featured the nerdy, (mostly) horror-inspired Happy Meal designs of Newt Clements. Well, he’s back with designs based on classic horror and current hits like Stranger Things, Ash vs Evil Dead, American Horror Story and more.
Yes, we wish they were real too. I really want the Necronomicon and Demogorgon toys. Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]
Chef J. Kenji Lopez-Alt is teaching the world how to make a version of the beloved McRib that wouldn’t be out of place on the menu of the world’s best restaurants.
Dubbed “Ribby McRibface” (ugh – of course) the creation is entirely scratch-made, meaning convenience will have to be sacrificed…nay, slaughtered in order to enjoy one on a regular basis. The bun alone, for instance, is smoked, glazed, ground, reformed, grilled, and glazed again. If that didn’t instantly put you off, you can check out the video recipe below. [click to continue…]
If you’re going to be in Japan around Halloween, make sure to pop into a neighborhood McDonald’s for some pumpkin and chocolate fries. Yes, you read that right—starting on September 28, McDonald’s in Japan will begin offering French Fries with pumpkin and chocolate sauce. Yum?

For their latest experiment, YouTuber “Let’s Melt This” doused a Big Mac with sulfuric acid. As you’ll see in the demonstration video below, the burger isn’t reduced to a puddle of goo like you might expect. Instead, it looks like it is being charred into a combination of tar and charcoal. Either way, you’ll likely find it unappetizing. [click to continue…]
