McDonald’s Is Adding Bacon To Their Burgers And Fries In 2019

McDonald's bacon

It feels like this day should have come a long time ago. As of January 30th, 2019, McDonald’s will offer menu items made with — drumroll please — bacon. Are those angels singing or are our ears just ringing from our screams of excitement?

That’s right, people. This is not a drill. For a limited time, beginning at the end of the month, McDonald’s customers will have the freedom to order a Big Mac Bacon, a Quarter Pounder Bacon, and Cheesy Bacon Fries. Heck, get all three in the same order. This is what pure joy tastes like, and it’s salty.

Chef Michael Haracz, McDonald’s manager of culinary innovation, said in a January 9th McDonald’s press release, “People love bacon, and they love our iconic Big Mac, fresh beef Quarter Pounder burgers and World Famous Fries, so we had to see what would happen if we combined all that tastiness. As a bacon enthusiast myself, I’m proud to say that we’ve done right by bacon fans and I can’t wait for our customers to try these Classics with delicious, thick cut Applewood smoked bacon for themselves.”

Oh man, we can hardly wait.

For each new menu item, McDonald’s simply slapped some delicious bacon atop the famous classics. It doesn’t get much better than that.

And we’re all really happy about this news.


To celebrate the birth of bacon-adorned McDonald’s sandwiches and cheese fries, let’s read a few of the 17,000 bacon social media posts that pop up on U.S. social media platforms daily. “That’s 740 times an hour!” as the McDonald’s press release reads.

Woah — really good point.

If it’s asparagus, it’s healthy for you, right?

This guy gets it.

This is the only way to cook eggs, kind sir.

Yes, we already have a countdown started on our phones to McDonald’s bacon day, January 30th. Get yourself to a participating McDonald’s when these bacon burgers and fries launch, so you can get a taste of heaven.
