Beginning tomorrow, McDonald's will add a four-patty Double Big Mac to its menu for a limited time, per CNN.

The Double Big Mac, which costs $5.49, has 720 calories and 43 grams of fat.
A regular Big Mac (two patties) costs $3.99 and has 540 calories and 30 grams of fat.

I'm not much of a fan of the Big Mac anymore.

My favorite sandwich is the Quarter Pounder Deluxe.

The McDonald's app no longer offers much in the way of deals to my liking.

But when the QPD was first offered, one could get it and an other sandwich for a modest cost, or fries for nearly free.

I just had a QPD and medium shamrock shake yesterday.

They were delicious.

Would they have called it just “Mac” if Apple wouldn’t come after them?

Out of curiosity, after years of not having eaten one I recently tried a Big Mac.

It was DISGUSTING.

I am a fan of McD's cheeseburgers and Quarter Pounders -- will have to try the Deluxe version.



It is what it is.

It’s a promotional gimmick doing its job relatively well.

A relative handful of us will dive into one once or twice in the short time it will be around. A small bit of inconsequential fun.

I eat almost as many Garden Burgers these days as fast food burgers. Even with fast food, an actual burger is hard pressed in the running with fish or chicken or something from Arby’s; a BLT or turkey and Swiss.

I just talked myself into a veggie burger and handful of fries out of the air fryer. big grin smiley

Before I even read the text I looked at the pic and said to myself "That did NOT come from any McDonalds!".

I ate a hamburger of some kind from McD's a few months ago, mainly because I was with my son and we were somewhere where McD's was the only place around he would eat at. I hadn't eaten anything there in probably 20 years before that. It was horrible. I suspect it'll be another 20 years (if ever) before I eat anything there.

Wait, I did have a vanilla shake there last year because we were out and I wanted something cold to drink and my wife wanted me to get her a diet coke. I guess I'd get a shake or something to drink there. But none of their "hamburgers"

Don't worry. The patties are so small now, 4 equals what the old 2 used to be...

The Big Mac is still using the same size patties as it always used, two 10 per pound beef patties. That has not changed in the 50+ years that McD's has sold the Big Mac. It is the same patty they use in the regular burgers.

Hmmm, that's surprising to me! Is it possible that they add more filler, water, whatever, that cooks out of the patties? Has the bread gotten wider? I swear the patties seem very small now compared to when I was a kid. Maybe it's just my perception since I only eat them every couple of years or so. (I do still find them quite tasty)
