McDonald’s has announced permanent changes to two of its most popular menu items – and they’re effective immediately.
The iconic cheeseburger and Big Mac will taste a little different after the fast-food chain decided to ditch old cooking methods and “change the cheese.”
The recipe adjustments were first tested in select stores in Australia, Belgium and Canada before being implemented there in 2019. In April, the chain announced the changes would roll out across the US by 2024.
A McDonald’s spokesman said, “Customers will also be pleased to know that more Big Mac Sauce is added to each burger for extra tangy sweetness in every bite.”
But McDonald’s fans have previously opposed the “changes” to restaurant favorites, prompting outrage — and this time is no different.
McDonald’s changed the recipe for several menu items — including both the Big Mac and the cheeseburger. The rollout initially started in Australia, Canada and Belgium
“I’m not looking for a change at my McDonald’s,” one American said online.
Another customer claimed, “The Cheesy and the Big Mac are fine, leave them alone.”
‘No thank you. “I prefer to prepare my food at home, so I decide what I put in it,” added a third.
Another didn’t hesitate to call the onions “junk,” and others raised concerns about price increases for “basically the same product.”
Customers in Australia, Canada and Belgium gave rave reviews, leading to the US launch.
The fast-food chain confirmed the buns are now “softer” and “cushion-like” and white onions are added to the patties during the grilling process for a “juicier, caramelized” flavor.
Additionally, changes were made to the burger assembly process to ensure the cheese slices are “perfectly melted” every time.

Chef Chad Schafer, McDonald’s USA Senior Director of Culinary Innovation, said, “I will always remember my first McDonald’s burger.”
“And now my kitchen team and I have the best job in the world — we’re thinking about how we can bring even more of that iconic McDonald’s flavor to fans.”
“We found that small changes, like tweaking our process to get hotter, meltier cheese and adjusting our grill settings for better searing, made a big difference and made our burgers tastier than ever.”
And this isn’t the first time McDonald’s has made controversial changes to its menu items.
Earlier this year, two menu options were removed in Australia to make way for four new offerings.
Limited-edition McCafé options will be available in all restaurants nationwide starting April 19.
Customers can now get their hands on a BBQ, Bacon Cheese Toastie, Banana Blueberry Loaf, Apple Cinnamon Muffin and Double Chocolate Muffin.
Unfortunately, the Mud Muffin and Blueberry Muffin are no longer available.
Daily Mail Australia understands that the apple cinnamon muffin has replaced the blueberry muffin and the double chocolate muffin has replaced the mud muffin.
Both the BBQ, Bacon and Cheese Toastie and the Banana and Blueberry Loaf will only be available for the next six months.
A McDonald’s spokesman previously told FEMAIL that the fast food chain was excited to unveil the new menu items.
“We’re excited to hear what customers think of the delicious new additions to our McCafé menu,” said the spokesman.
