JUNE 27, 2013 – In the month of June, McDonald’s introduced three new varieties of its signature Quarter Pounder Burger, for the first time in 40 years, which includes Bacon & Cheese Quarter Pounder, the Bacon Habanero Ranch Quarter Pounder and the Deluxe.
This trio of new burgers replaces McDonald’s Third Pounder Angus Burgers, which were bigger in size and were offered at a bigger price, nudging some of the markets with $5. The new offerings include Bacon Habanero Ranch which is a Quarter Pounder Burger with white cheddar, new thick-cut Apple wood smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato and a spicy Habanero ranch sauce.
Its Quarter Pounder Deluxe is the burger with American cheese, tomato, lettuce, crinkle-cut pickle slices, red onion, mayonnaise and mustard; and the Bacon & Cheese Quarter Pounder Burger is prepared with new thick-cut Applewood smoked bacon, American cheese, crinkle cut pickle slices, red onion, ketchup and mustard.
McDonald’s customers will still be able to order the classic Quarter Pounder Burger along with these new varieties. The brand says that its new Quarter Pounders are “new tastes with personalities and are as unique as the ingredients that top them off.”
