Bacon lovers have good reason to rejoice.
McDonald’s will be celebrating bacon’s arrival to its “Classics” menu by letting customers put bacon on anything they order. Imagine the possibilities, Bacon on a Big Mac, bacon on a Filet-O-Fish, on a sundae, fries, bacon on a Quarter Pounder.
But customers should know the free bacon will only be available for one hour, from 4 to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 29.
McDonald’s is calling the nationwide event “Bacon Hour.” For 60 minutes, customers will be able to get thick cut, Applewood smoked bacon with anything on the menu, at no additional cost. Customers will be given two half pieces of bacon on the side with any purchase and can add it to whatever item they wish.
“When we said there’s no such thing as too much bacon, we weren’t kidding. January 29, we’ll be upping the bacon ante—the bac-ante, if you will—and celebrating this glorious food favorite like never before,” said Chef Michael Haracz, McDonald’s Manager of Culinary Innovation. “I love bacon. America loves bacon. I really can’t wait to see the crazy and daring combinations our customers put together.”
Available at most restaurants in the contiguous U.S. Not available in Alaska, Hawaii and U.S. Territories.
***Limit one side of bacon per person with any order.
