We’re really starting to have a major issue with our “friends” in the Great White North. First it was the folks at Burger King who were releasing all kinds of great items only in Canada. Then it was Arby’s. And now you can add McDonald’s to the list.
McDonald’s! There are few things more American then a set of Golden Arches beckoning you to drive up and order a Big Mac and a large order of fries. But much like Burger King, McDonald’s has decided to keep some of their best menu items only in Canada.
What other explanation can there be for the fact that a new spin on the iconic Quarter Pounder is now available only in Canada, but that this isn’t even the first time it has been on the menu. No, it has been available before and is now back.
The Maple BBQ and Bacon Quarter Pounder will only be at McDonald’s for a limited time.
The sandwich in question is called the Maple BBQ and Bacon Quarter Pounder. And other than having a really long name, it also includes everything that a burger fan would love to have on a Quarter Pounder.
As long as you don’t live in the United States.
The Maple BBQ and Bacon Quarter Pounder includes a quarter pound beef patty topped with bacon strips, a couple of slices of cheddar cheese, onions and pickles as well as a creamy maple BBQ sauce all served on a sesame seed roll.
Not enough for you? It is also available as a Double Maple BBQ and Bacon Quarter Pounder that invites a second beef patty to the party.
How can anyone at McDonald’s think that this wouldn’t sell like gangbusters here in the States? Americans love both Quarter Pounders and BBQ sauce and bacon, well bacon is practically a food group all to itself for most people.
If you’re lucky enough to find yourself in Canada over the next few weeks make sure to stop into a McDonald’s and try one since it will only be available for a limited time. In the meantime us Amercians will just have to hope it finds its way here at some point in the future.
