McDonald’s Expanding Mozzarella Sticks Nationwide In 2016

A little over a year ago, we pondered the age-old question: Will mozzarella sticks ever be a McDonald’s Dollar Menu item? We received a partial answer this June when the Golden Arches began pushing the hot cheese on susceptible Wisconsinites via a test of the “Lovin’ Value Menu” – you know, because that only makes sense. Well, now we know that those (maybe) glorious sticks of gooeyness are headed to a McD’s near you. 

The fast food giant announced that mozzarella sticks would be rolling out to its restaurants nationwide sometime in 2016, BuzzFeed News reports.

McDonald’s U.S. President Mike Andres revealed the new Dollar Menu & More addition, which includes three sticks with marinara sauce, during an investors’ meeting on Tuesday.

Andres didn’t give an exact timeline for when customers might expect to see the fried cheese hit menus, but noted that the new item was expected to help spur sales at the company.

Back in June, local franchisees in Wisconsin said customers were “thrilled” to have the option of mozz sticks as a quick snack.
