McDonald’s Brings Back Grand Big Mac To Celebrate 50 Years of Big Mac

This year is the 50 years of Big Mac since it was introduced in 1968 and to mark this golden jubilee, McDonald’s is bringing back the super sized Big Mac called Grand Big Mac, as well as the downsized Big Mac, Mac Jr. This is not the first time the two sizes of Big Mac appeared, though. It did last year, but for some reasons, McDonald’s can’t seem to find a better way to celebrate than to bring back the two additional sizes for consumers who think a regular Big Mac isn’t enough or too much. For those have the appetite for beef patty, the Grand Big Mac should be right up alley because it has a whopping 61 percent more beef over the standard variant.

Why, of course, it is shamrock! But no, the innovation isn’t in this cold, sludgy beverage; it is in the straw. That’s right. The Straw. I know right? Just when you thought this sucking tube needs no further innovation, it had one and it had a fancy name too, called Suction Tube for Reverse Axial Withdrawal which, not surprisingly, arrived to the acronym STRAW. Ingenious? Maybe. Continue reading Meet The Straw, A Straw That Lets You Drink From Two Layers In One Suck

Big Mac Goes Giga-size In Japan, Has Not Two But Four Beef Patties

Big Mac has long been the signature and biggest burger of fast food chain McDonald’s, but if the 500+ calories is not even enough for you, well, then may we suggest to head down to Japan, cos’ McDonald’s Japan is serving up, wait for this… Giga Big Mac. As the product name implies, it is a giga-sized Big Mac (duh…), which McDonald’s Japan described as taller and wider and more importantly, packs “2.8 times more meat” over the regular Big Mac. The setup is as what you would expect of a Big Mac, sporting a five-storey buildup consisting of sesame seed top bun, middle and bottom bun with patties sandwiched in between, plus the usual garnishes of pickles, lettuce and slices of cheese. However, instead of two beef patties, the Giga Big Mac has Continue reading Big Mac Goes Giga-size In Japan, Has Not Two But Four Beef Patties
