Ever since it’s arrival way back in 1967 the Big Mac has been a mainstay of the McDonald’s menu and an enduring choice for the customers seeking a little bit more than just your average hamburger.
But the Big Mac’s position as the daddy of the McDonald’s menu could soon be under threat if the company’s latest plans are anything to go by.
Because the Big Mac could be about to undergo a major change and it’s probably going to piss a lot of people off.
Evidently keen to freshen up its menu and offer something that is “down with the kidz” McDonald’s is launching a version of the Big Mac with one key difference.
It concerns the sauce contained within the Big Mac – this version features spicy Sriracha in place of the ‘Mac’s standard burger fare.
Made using red chilli and garlic, Sriracha traditionally features in Vietnamese and Thai Food and could prove a little too hot to handle for some.
It’s the first major change to the Big Mac formula in some 50 years and has fans panicked that it could yet prove a permanent one should the new Sriracha version prove popular.
The change is the latest controversial revamp to occur in the world of food, following on from the decision by Mondelez International to change the shape of Toblerone bars sold in the UK.
