Here’s everything you need to know before planning a trip to your local ‘Maccies’ this holiday season, including how much new items will cost, when they’ll be available to buy and which items will leave the current menu as a result. .
All McDonald’s 2022 festive menu items – how much they cost
For a limited time, the channel will bring back its “universally adored” Big tasty burger, which has been replaced by the Pile of BBQ Bacon back in October. The burger consists of a 100% beef patty, Emmental cheese, onions, juicy tomatoes and a smoky-tasting sauce nestled in a freshly toasted bun – available with or without bacon for £5.29 on its own or £6.89 meal with fries and drink.
Meanwhile, chicken lovers can get their hands on the chain’s new staple, the McCrispy. The burger was launched in-store as part of a major menu shake-up in October, replacing the legend of the chicken. It features 100% chicken breast fillet in a crispy coating, served with iceberg lettuce, black pepper mayonnaise and a sourdough-style sesame bun.
Everyone knows the best part of Christmas dinner is the toppings and McDonald’s United Kingdom not disappointed this year. McDonald’s apple pie has been given a festive upgrade with the return of the chain’s famous festive pie – a classic hot and crispy pie filled with minced meat and custard for £1.29.
Cheese Melt Dippers are also back this year with breaded camembert bites served with a tangy tomato dip. You can grab four bites for £2.29 or a sharing box of 15 for £5.99.
This year’s festive McFlurry flavor is Celebrations, featuring swirled milk soft serve ice cream with clusters of Maltesers, Galaxy Chocolate Drops, Caramel Chunks, Mars Chew Chunks and Twix Cookies – all topped with a milk chocolate sauce. Bounty pieces don’t appear to be included after the coconut flavored treat was fallen from the Celebrations bins this year to great dismay.
When will the 2022 McDonald’s Party Menu launch?
The McDonald’s The 2022 Festive Menu will arrive in restaurants across the UK and Ireland from Wednesday 23rd November for a limited time of only six weeks. To make room for the Christmas lineup, the channel will bid farewell to its current promotional menu which includes BBQ Bacon Stack, Nacho Cheese Wedges and Twirl McFlurry on Tuesday, November 22.
