McDonald’s burger improvements come to South Africa

McDonald’s burger improvements have been making their way around the globe and have been implemented in SA, bringing a juicier, hotter, taste to South African customers.

How do you make the most loved burgers in the world hotter, juicier, and tastier?

With the old burger recipe 28 years old in SA, McDonald’s South Africa added a few game-changing steps to its classic burger preparation that will “elevate the culinary experience of the beloved golden arches to a hotter, juicer and tastier experience”.

This new development is followed by an earlier announcement by McDonald’s to implement recipe upgrades at its restaurants globally. It has already introduced these changes in the USA, Canada, Australia, and Belgium.

Fans will now dig in to a juicier and fuller flavoured burger with the addition of white onions directly to the patties on the grill to intensify flavour; cheese that will be melted to the optimum stretch; more sauce; and flanked by softer buns that have been toasted golden brown.

[There’s no indication of what ‘hotter’ actually means here… physical or spicy?]

“These small but tasty improvements add up to a big difference our customer’s taste,” says McDonald’s South Africa. “Our classics at their best. These includes our iconic burgers like the Big Mac, Quarter Pounder with Cheese, and Double Cheeseburger, which are at the heart of our business, and are what keep our customers coming back for more.

“Our burgers, made using 100% pure beef patties, are prepared with salt, pepper and no artificial preservatives, flavours, colours, or fillers. As always, we source fresh, delicious, quality ingredients, because how our food is produced and where it comes from matters to us, our customers, our communities, and the environment.

“Customers who have already tasted the difference since the changes were implemented are already “lovin’ it.” Early indicators show significant customer approval in markets where these improvements have been introduced.”
