McDonald’s have done it again, guys. The fast-food chain has announced details of its upcoming summer menu, and we know you’re all going to lose your minds.
The burger giants are bringing halloumi fries to the masses, alongside a whole bunch of new burgers and a new McFlurry flavour.
Coming in two separate launches across June and July, the new Taste of Italy menu will drop first (on 8th June) celebrating light, fresh summer flavours.
This will see two new burgers arrive on the menu: the Italian Stack and the Crispy Chicken Italiano.
The Italian Stack is made of two beef patties and topped with crispy onions, mozzarella, tomato sauce, lettuce, tomato and a rich cheese sauce, all stuffed in a herby bun.
Meanwhile, the Crispy Chicken Italiano is made with (you guessed it) a crispy chicken fillet, topped with pesto sauce, mozarella, tomato, red onion and lettuce, inside a ciabatta style bun.
Perhaps most excitingly, a tiramisu-flavoured McFlurry will be available in honour of the much adored Italian dessert. Anyone else drooling at the thought?!
The halloumi fries will be lightly cooked in butter and served with a rich tomato sauce.
We have a feeling these are going to be *very* popular.
Arriving on the 27th July, the menu also has two new burgers which will replace the Italian options: the Spicy Spanish Stack burger and the Chicken Fiesta.
The Spicy Spanish Stack will be made up of two beef patties stuffed into a paprika bun, topped with a spicy tomato sauce, red onion, lettuce, and a chilli cheddar slice.
Meanwhile, the Chicken Fiesta is a crispy chicken fillet in a paprika bun, featuring all the same toppings with the addition of some spicy Chorizo.
That’s not all, either. The Taste of Spain and Cyprus menu will also include a new Spanish Fruit Punch – a refreshing citrusy soft drink which is perfect for the warm months ahead.
Obviously, to accommodate all these new launches, something has to give. So, from 8th June, we’ll be saying goodbye to the Grand Big Mac and the McSpicy chicken burger, as well as the Flake McFlurry.
We think you’ll agree the replacements are more than satisfactory, though.
