McDonald’s has launched a new limited edition festive menu, including some firm favourites alongside several delicious new additions in time for the Christmas season.
Maccies fans will be excited to see the return of the Big Tasty burger, and the Big Tasty with Bacon, in restaurants from this week.
The Chicken Deluxe with a Zesty Tomato Relish is another new addition and if you’re in the mood for sharing, why not try the Cheese Melt Dippers Sharebox; the 12 cheesy bites are made with camembert and served alongside a limited edition tasty tomato dip.
Another intriguing item is the new ‘Reindeer Treats’ - otherwise known as carrot bags.
For those partial to something sweet, the seasonal menu includes the much-loved Matchmakers Cool Mint McFlurry. This flavour hasn’t been served since 2013, so customers will be eager to try the revived classic again.
Ben Fox, Marketing Director, McDonald’s UK and Ireland commented: “We’re all about making people’s lives easier at Christmas and having familiar favourites like the Big Tasty and Matchmakers Cool Mint McFlurry on menus when the festive season can feel so chaotic does just that.
“For 2019 we are excited to be combining these firm favourites with the Chicken Deluxe too - a delicious new addition to the menu which we know our customers will love.”
