McDonald’s is pleased with the sales of its Angus Burger (currently available in test markets, such as LA) and is planning to release the beast on the unsuspecting Northeast.
“We’re going to be testing Angus burgers later this summer in one of the Northeast markets,” said King, McDonald’s East Division president. “With all test products we want to get a sense of different geographies and demographics so we’re going to take it around the block here in the East.”
Just in case you were wondering, the third-pound Angus with Bacon and Cheese packs 820 calories, 43g of fat, and 65g of carbohydrates. Combined with a large package of french fries (570 calories) and a large Coke (310 calories)… Your Angus Bacon and Cheese lunch provides you with 1700 delicious calories in one meal.
Anyway, the pictures make the burger look pretty tempting, but since we’ve not eaten a McDonald’s burger in 12 years, (don’t ask, you don’t want to know) we’ll probably be able to resist. How about you?—MEGHANN MARCO
