Reports of the new “McDouble” replacing the Double Cheeseburger on the McDonald’s “Dollar Menu” have started to roll into our inbox. The “McDouble” is a double cheeseburger with only one slice of cheese.
I had been waiting for it to happen but last night was a bit of a shock. My wife and I zipped through the McDonald’s drive-thru for two double cheeseburgers. We did not even pay attention to the total until we pulled to the window to pay and it was $2.65. We inquired and were told the New McDouble has two patties and once slice of cheese and is still $1. The double cheese is now $1.25 because of the cost of cheese.
I know Lawrenceburg, KY is normally a starting point for national trends but is this new McDouble widespread yet?
We think so. McDonald’s blog “McChronicles” has a photo of a new menu item (above). Anyone tried it?
Can you tell there’s less cheese? Do you care?
