retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Fox News reports that McDonald's iconic Big Mac - two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed bun - will now be available as a Double Big Mac - four all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed bun.

And, the story says, it also will be offered as a Little Mac - one all-beef patty, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed bun.

The new options were developed - and will be available nationwide for a limited time - to give fans “new ways to enjoy the burger they love,” said Linda VanGosen, vice president of menu innovation, in a press release.

KC's View:

Over the years, I've been pretty critical of McDonald's and its food.  And I must admit that it probably has been decades since I've had a Big Mac, which was a go-to when I was young,.

So I can't really explain it, but I suddenly have a hankering for the Double Big Mac.  

And I can't get that jingle out of my mind…
