McDonald’s is celebrating its 50th birthday with new menu items- including return of fan favourites


McDonald’s is launching a special limited-edition menu this July as part of birthday celebrations to mark 50 years in the UK.

The fast food chain has unveiled several new products and announced the return of some iconic burgers at its restaurants in Arnold and Netherfield from July 17.

The epic Double Big Mac is coming back, as is the Double Big Mac with bacon.

Also making a re-appearance on the menu is the McCrispy BBQ Smokehouse. This chicken burger sees crispy coated chicken topped with a smoky BBQ sauce, cheddar cheese, red onion, and lettuce, all in a sourdough style sesame topped bun.

Three new desserts, including a Milkybar Raspberry Ripple McFlurry, a Munchies Cookie Dough McFlurry, and a Birthday Cake Donut will also be launched on July 17.

The colourful ring donut will feature a strawberry filling, topped with buttercream-flavoured icing, and sprinkles. While the Milkybar McFlurry is made up of soft ice cream, mini Milkybar chocolate drops and a sweet and sharp raspberry sauce. Similarly, the new Munchies one consists of ice cream, chocolate-coated Munchies biscuit pieces, and caramel cookie dough sauce. 

McDonald’s is also launching brand new Cheesy Garlic Bread Dippers. These cheesy mozzarella bites are flavoured with garlic and chives and coated in a ciabatta-style breadcrumb coating.  They’re served with a rich tomato dip. These can be ordered as a side or a sharebox and is a twist on the classic mozzarella dippers.

But to make way for the new arrivals, some of the current items will be disappearing.

The Hat Trick burger, a triple stack with two slices of cheese, grilled onions, mustard, and ketchup in a glazed sesame seed bun, will be leaving the menu, as will the Skittles McFlurry, and the Galaxy Chocolate and Raspberry Pie.

The Galaxy Caramel McFlurry is also set to go, as it’s replaced by the new flavours.
