McDonald’s permanently axes popular menu 


McDonald’s has axed a popular menu item TODAY. The Chicken Big Mac is being removed from the menu on Tuesday March 15. 

The move from the fast food giant comes after an unprecedented demand for the item. McDonald’s was forced to axe the item from its restaurants after it was sold out across swathes of the country.

And now the limited edition item is going for good. A McDonald’s spokesperson said at the time of its withdrawal: “We have been delighted by our customers’ reaction to the limited-edition Chicken Big Mac.

The demand has been incredible and we simply cannot keep up. As such we’ve made the decision to pause the promotion, let our restaurant teams and suppliers restock and get ready for its return in a few weeks. We’ll keep customers informed about its return through the usual channels.”

“Thank you to everyone who has made this our most popular launch ever. We can’t wait to bring it back for even more customers to enjoy.”

Online, fans demanded the burger stay. Claire wrote: “I am going to miss the Chicken Big Mac when it goes.” And Amanda wrote: “Can’t believe McDonald’s is getting rid #chickenbigmac.”

As it launched, the chain confirmed it is filled with two 100% chicken breast patties in a crispy coating, a slice of cheese, lettuce, pickles and the world-famous Big Mac sauce. McDonald’s branded it: “The most iconic and beloved burger but with an exciting new twist”.

The Chicken Big Mac costs £4.09 or £5.59 as part of a meal, however, prices do vary depending on the branch. It initially dropped on February 2.
