Bacon is king. This whimsical food completely enhances anything it touches. Add bacon to salads and they’re instantly better. Bacon crumbles on ice cream sundaes add a savory balance to the overwhelming sweetness. Now you’ll be able to add bacon to any menu item from McDonald’s and the best part is that it is FREE! But there’s a catch because there’s always a catch. This delicious offer is only available for one hour and one hour only.
McDonald’s is having a “Bacon Hour,” a delectably crispy happy hour for bacon lovers where you can add thick cut, Applewood smoked bacon to anything you order at the fast-food restaurant for free. Add bacon to your Big Mac. Add bacon to you McNuggets. Add bacon to your Filet-O-Fish. Add bacon to your apple pie. Add bacon to your sundae. Add bacon to your Coca-Cola. And you can baconize your order at no extra cost.
On Tuesday, January 29, McDonald’s offers their Bacon Hour from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. local time. There is a limit of one free side of bacon, which is two half pieces of bacon, per person with any order.
McDonald’s is also going hog wild by adding bacon to classic menu items: The Big Mac Bacon and Quarter Pounder Bacon. Plus, there will be new Cheesy Bacon Fries, delicious McDonald’s French fries topped with real cheddar cheese sauce and smoked bacon bits that will cost between $3.15 to $3.45. You can feed your inner bacon monster with these bacon dishes starting on January 30th.
“When we said there’s no such thing as too much bacon, we weren’t kidding. January 29, we’ll be upping the bacon ante—the bac-ante, if you will—and celebrating this glorious food favorite like never before,” said Chef Michael Haracz, McDonald’s Manager of Culinary Innovation. “I love bacon. America loves bacon. I really can’t wait to see the crazy and daring combinations our customers put together.”
