I tried one of the new “plussed” Quarter Pounders at McDonald’s the other day. These new versions of an old favorite come in three flavors: Bacon Habanero Ranch, Bacon and Cheese, and Deluxe. Here, I take the Bacon and Cheese version out for a test drive, but it was advertised in the restaurant as the Quarter Pounder BLT, which is a better name, I think:
I found the burger to be overall very pleasing. The big slabs of bacon went well with the thicker meat of the QP. Lettuce, tomato and a chunk of fancy onion rounded out the sandwich, which was delivered on a sturdy premium bun.
I wonder if these will sell better than the Angus burgers. They’ve got to be about the same size and weight. Perhaps the clout of using a familiar name will help these to become a staple on the McDonald’s menu.
If you’re craving a bigger burger but tired of the old thing, give one of these a spin.
