McDonald's fans reveal hack to improve new £4.19 Double Big Mac burger

MCDONALD'S fans have shared a hack to improve the new £4.19 Double Big Mac burger – after complaining it doesn't have enough cheese.

It comes after the chain released its Christmas Menu this week, with hungry Brits rushing to restaurants to try the new options.

Fast food aficionados have been given the choice of a jerk chicken burger, Camembert dippers, Celebrations McFlurries and salted caramel lattes.

But it's the huge Big Mac – double the size of a regular order – that has got customers most excited.

And while fans say they can't wait to get their teeth into the treat, some have taken to social media to accuse McDonald's of scrimping on the cheese.

After the food company posted a picture of the new burger on Twitter, they were hit with a series of criticisms.

One user asked: "How can this lack so much cheese?", while another said: "One slice of cheese? Nah, that's not working for me."

A third replied: "Seriously though, one slice of cheese on that Big Mac top half's going choke someone, didn't it used to have cheese on top as well?

"Should have four slices on it cheapskates."

But one fan of the eatery has shared a smart hack for the problem.

He said: "Having just ordered one of these, try putting 'extra cheese' and 'extra Big Mac sauce' on in the Customise menu.

"The latter even seems to be free."

Maccy Christmas

Here’s the full McDonald’s Christmas menu and prices for 2020:

  • Double Big Mac Meal – £4.19 for a single or £5.69 as a meal
  • Jamaican Jerk Chicken Sandwich Meal – £4.39 for a single or £5.69 as a meal
  • Cheese Melt Dippers – £1.79 for four or £4.79 for a sharebox
  • Celebrations McFlurry – £1.39 or mini for £0.99
  • Salted Caramel Latte – £1.69

However, a lack of cheese wasn't the only complaint.

Others claimed they'd been given a regular-sized Big Mac – in a box advertising a Double.

Tweeter Rob said: "Tried to order one.

"Ended up with the same old Big Mac, but just more expensive. Not happy."

Simon also replied: "I ordered the double Big Mac today and received a standard Big Mac in the box from the Plymstock drive-thru."

User Hannah had also been sold a smaller burger, telling the brand: "Really disappointed with my Double Big Mac… it was just a Big Mac in the Double Big Mac box!"

A spokesperson from McDonald's said: "Our new Double Big Mac has been an incredibly popular new launch on our festive menu this year, and we’re delighted with the positive reaction it’s received so far.

"As with any menu item, customers can choose to customise their order, whether that’s adding a slice of cheese, extra Big Mac sauce or removing the pickles.”

The Christmas menu means McDonald's had to say goodbye to limited edition burgers including the spicy quarter pounder.

Also new to McDonald's is a free cheeseburger offer for new members of its app.
