McDonald’s UK My Burger 2014 Winners
Burger Lad® does it again as we reveal the five winning My Burger promotional burgers starting on Wednesday 15th October for five weeks.
As you know we made it to the final but sadly we were not picked to be one of the five. Never mind though as we are more than happy to be reviewing these new consumer designed promotional items.
Remember we were also the first in the world to reveal the winning items in our tweet on 01st October – we’d also revealed the Volcano Fragment to be a winner way back on 12th September but the name has been changed to the Sweet Chilli Fiesta by Ronald and friends.
EXCLUSIVE: “Big Uno”, “Fiesta”, “Ultimate”, “McPizza” & “Spicy Bacon” are the 5 winners going on sale soon. Names subject to change!

Here is our update after reviewing all five burgers including our ranking…
Now we first heard about McDonald’s My Burger coming to the UK way back in early 2014. It’s been a long and exciting promotion for us including submitting our own creation and then being part of the finals in London. And we’ll never, ever forget that experience… the big question is will McDonald’s bring My Burger back to the UK?
Based on the near 100,000 burger entries and the semi Twitter frenzy we’d hedge a bet on yes but possibly not until 2016 at the earliest. Don’t quote us on that! It’s not been without its share of controversy either with the Big Uno originally submitted as a gluten free option and the partial fallout of it not being made GF when it finally hit the High Street.
Will an overall “winner” be crowned out of the final five based on the voting through the McD’s website? To us it doesn’t matter if a champion emerges, as seeing five new McDonald’s burgers on the High Street means we’re all winners deep down… with that let us take a look at how our unbiased taste test ranking experiment went.
Please note the scores below were based on four people unaffiliated with our website scoring each burger 1 (least favourite) to 5 (most enjoyable). Using advanced statistical methods we then analysed the data and ranked the burgers accordingly. Points are included in brackets, with four people participating 20 is the maximum score a burger could have achieved.
1. The Big Spicy Bacon (18)
2. Sweet Chilli Fiesta (15)
3. McPizza Pepperoni (12)
4. The Ultimate Supreme (9)
5. The Big Uno (6)
