  • McDonald’s has announced revamps their classic Big Macs and other burgers
  • They will be competing against burgers from Five Guys and Smashburger 
  • The restaurant chain recently made over 50 changes to their burgers

The classic Big Mac has had a makeover to compete with restaurant chains that many consumers are loving more than McDonald’s.

The fast food giant made more than 50 changes to its burgers and have been working on improving the Big Mac since 2016.

Big Mac changes include two smaller cooked all-beef patties, more special sauce, and fresher lettuce, cheese and pickles.

The burger buns will continue to be round and buttery, but the sesame seeds will also be scattered to create a more homemade look. 

The revamped Big Mac will help McDonald’s take on the popular restaurant chain Five Guys, which is known for its popular burgers, hot dogs, and french fries.

All of the Big Mac changes are happening after McDonald’s only ranked 13th among US chains with customers calling their burgers desirable earlier this year.

The ranking was based on a survey with 49,000 consumers conducted by Technomic market research firm, with only 28 percent of participants saying the crave McDonald’s burgers.

A TikTok user – spoofing popular food reviewer Keith Lee – even posted a video last month to show people why McDonald’s burgers taste like ‘a cereal box with ketchup on it.’

He took a bite of a napkin after swallowing the bite he took of the sad and cereal-like McDonald’s burger, and said they both tasted the same.

The burger was not good enough to for @youfilmme.tv to keep eating, and he ended up throwing it out the window as fast as he could.

Watchers who commented on the video loved @youfilmme.tv’s statements and some even agreed with what he said about the McDonald’s burger.

Other than ‘a cereal box with ketchup,’ @youfilmme.tv said that the burger patty with diced onions looked like a ‘burger with eczema’ – aka a burger with a skin condition.

‘Why is that so accurate,’ one TikToker wrote after repeating the ‘burger with eczema statement.’

TikTokers also joked about the napkin that @youfilmme.tv that took a bite of, and even though one user called the napkin ‘innocent,’ he did not disagree with a McDonald’s burger tasting like one.

A Chicago chef named Chad Schafer cooked a regular McDonald’s double cheeseburger without any of the new changes, and told The Wall Street Journal that it was ‘kind of dry’ and ‘cracked.’

The burgers were hotter and meltier – so melty that Schafer was able to sink his fingers into the bun.

All of the burger changes have also led the McDonald’s company to urge their franchises to clean toasters daily and monitor grill temperatures.

The burger makeover seven years in the making was tested in Australia in 2018 and is now in West Coast and Midwestern US stores.

The restaurant chain is hoping to get all of its locations to implement the new burger cooking method by early October 2024.
