Review of McDonald’s Crispy McBacon – Italy
What they say:
100% beef, two bacon slices accompanied by delicious bacon sauce and spicy cheese. There is no need to crown Crispy McBacon king of crispness and taste. A classic that will never come to an end.
Price: €4.40 (approx. £4.00).
Calories: 492 kcal.
A mainstay on McDonald’s Italy menu is the Crispy McBacon.
We were in Sicily on holiday and I had been watching their LTOs with baited breath.
On the build, you’ve got crispy bacon, two slices of cheese, two beef patties and a bacon sauce.
Sounds great – what could go wrong?
Apart from some slightly messy presentation absolutely nothing!
This is an outstanding burger and would be a great fit for a UK release.
It’s like a BK Bacon Double Cheese but better!! Much better!
There has also been a bigger version of this called the Gran Crispy McBacon – obviously using the same sized buns and patties seen on the Grand Big Mac. Very much like Burger King’s XL Bacon Double Cheese.
Crispy bacon and a really sexy bacon sauce make this a real winner and is the ultimate double cheese from McDonald’s.
I can’t understand why this isn’t on the UK menu either as a permanent addition or a recurring promo like the Big Tasty.
Everything works great together – soft beef and cheese with a baconnaise-type sauce with crispy bacon makes for the ultimate carnivores burger.
I can’t recommend it enough… if you get the chance to sample one.
It is a bit on the pricy side for what it is considering a double cheese is £1.49 in the UK and we paid a shade over £4.00 for this.
In Italy, you can also get a Bacon Double Cheeseburger for €2.50 which offers greater value. Although I have found previous promos offering the Crispy McBacon at the amazing price of €1 – now that is the time to be sampling it!
The price is probably only the negative point with the Crispy McBacon.
Saying that, I absolutely loved this burger and can only hope it or a variation of it pays a visit to this country.
