McDonald’s Summer Food Event
McDonald’s Summer Food Event:
Firstly, I would like to say a massive thank you to Secret Sauce for providing the following information.
As we exclusively revealed on your favourite fast food podcast, McDonald’s will be releasing three new burgers and a new side over the next three months.
From Wednesday 8th June until Tuesday 26th July, the Italian Stack will be returning to the menu – our review from November 2019 here.
In the description kindly supplied by Secret Sauce, the Italian Stack is “2 beef patties, cheese béchamel sauce a rich tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese slice, served with crispy and silvered onions, and lettuce in a tomato and herb style bun.”
The chicken burger used for the Homestyle Crispy Chicken is being used on the Crispy Chicken Italiano.
This new build is “a crispy chicken fillet served with mozzarella cheese, pesto mayo, tomato slice, red onion and lettuce in a ciabatta style bun.”
The Crispy Chicken Italiano will definitely be receiving the usual BURGER LAD treatment!
Part 1 of the McDonald’s Summer Food Event also includes Mozzarella Dippers (side of 3 or sharebox of 9) which is accompanied by the salsa dip.
There is also a Tiramisu McFlurry (ice cream, swirled with chocolate Tiramisu and Mascarpone flavour pieces, and chocolate coffee sauce) and Galaxy Caramel McFlurry (ice cream, swirled with Galaxy chocolate pieces and Galaxy caramel sauce).
Part 2 of McDonald’s Summer Food Event runs from Wednesday 27th July until Tuesday 6th September (typically I am on holiday that week!).
Pictured above are Burger King’s Halloumi Fries which launched in the UK around June 2021. And now McDonald’s are bringing their version to UK diners.
They will be available as a side of 4 or sharebox of 12 and are “coated in a light batter” and come “with a rich tomato dip.”
We are also getting two new burgers in the UK which when I first heard of them, reminded me of the old Spanish Grande.
The Spicy Spanish Feast is described as “2 beef patties, spicy cheddar cheese, red onion, lettuce and a delicious bravos sauce with a spicy kick served in a paprika flavoured bun.”
Definite review material right there.
The Chicken option sounds really interesting and is called the Chicken Fiesta.
This brand new build has “rich flavours of chorizo, paprika and roasted peppers and a delicious crispy chicken fillet, served up with spicy cheddar cheese, lettuce and red onions in a paprika flavoured bun.”
It has been a number of years since we’ve had chorizo and/or roasted peppers on a burger at McDonald’s so all of us on the podcast are looking forward to sampling this new menu item.
The Galaxy Caramel McFlurry continues in part 2 and is joined by the Galaxy Cookie Crumble McFlurry (ice cream, swirled with Galaxy cookie crumble pieces and Galaxy chocolate sauce).
And a new McCafe drink will also be available called the Spanish Fruit Punch – a blend of citrus and red fruit drink served over ice.
All of the above sounds like an interesting LTO with the obvious Italian and Spanish influences.
What do you think of McDonald’s Summer Food Event 2022?
Let us know your thoughts in the comments below or via the usual BURGER LAD channels.
Thank you again Secret Sauce – we really do appreciate it!!
Right… I’m off to watch Obi-Wan Kenobi. Again.
Until next time…
