Here are some great lyrics to a catchy song.
“Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed bun.”
Here are some not so good lyrics to a less than great song.
“One all beef patty, white cheddar cheese, crispy onions, baby spinach, baby kale, a tomato slice, special sauce mixed with sriracha on an artisan roll.”
But that’s the tune McDonald’s thinks America wants to sing, and is launching these hipster Big Macs in San Diego, Seattle, and Los Angeles. From a release announcing the news.
McDonald’s has added a new flavor, Signature Sriracha, to its Signature Crafted sandwich menu to provide customers with more options and unique flavors. The freshly prepared Signature Sriracha sandwich includes an exclusive Sriracha Big Mac sauce, paired with white cheddar cheese, crispy onions, baby spinach & baby kale and a tomato slice.
McDonald’s is taking a different approach to lettuce by adding premium greens to its signature sandwiches. Baby kale and baby spinach were chosen specifically to balance out the spicy sauce while serving as the perfect partner to accompany the other savory ingredients of white cheddar cheese, onions and tomato.
Customers can add these tasty flavors on a 100 percent pure beef patty, Buttermilk Crispy Chicken or Artisan Grilled Chicken and top it with an artisan roll, sesame seed bun or tasty potato bun.
“The combination of Sriracha with our iconic Big Mac Sauce is the perfect blend of ingredients that speaks to our flavor fans who love Sriracha,” said Chef Michael Haracz, Manager of Culinary Innovation at McDonald’s USA. “Summer is the perfect time to enjoy great food that will please your taste buds.”
In fairness, it’s not the Big Mac that’s changing, just that a sriracha Big Mac sauce will be offered. But it’s the principle. There’s now officially no part of classic American fast food that hipsters haven’t invaded. Stupid Mexican Coke with real sugar is sold these days. KFC is launching Hot Chicken because hipsters love Nashville because of that stupid Modern Romance episode. Starbucks is now offering fucking pour overs.
Everything is being goddamn Brooklynized.
These sandwiches debut this month. I’ll probably try one. I bet they’re good.
