The legend, but bigger.Grand Mac™When that Big Mac craving calls for something more… sink into 1/3 lb* of 100% real beef seasoned with salt & pepper sandwiched between a sesame seed bun. All dressed with special sauce, crisp lettuce, onions, pickles and two slices of American cheese.

The legend, but smaller.Mac Jr™That iconic taste in a smaller size with a sear-sizzled 100% real beef patty, salt & pepper and special sauce sandwiched between a sesame seed bun. American cheese, crisp lettuce, onions and pickles top it off.

The one and only.Big Mac®Mouthwatering perfection starts with two sear-sizzled 100% pure beef patties and Big Mac® sauce, sandwiched between a sesame seed bun. American cheese, crisp lettuce, onions and pickles top it off.

I will have the Grand Mac in my possession soon. Will post results.

It's ok, It's bigger for sure but it just feels like more bread. When you hold it it almost reminds you of a big burger from an actual restaurant but then you take a bite and you find those little patties.
>>
>>8488427
>New

Isn't the Grand Mac just the reincarnation of what the Big Mac used to be before it was reduced to the smaller imitation "Big" Mac it is today?

By the way, the fries were on point. Hot, salted well, and held thier quality throughout the meal.

I failed to mention when I grabbed the bag, I wrapped it tight to keep the food warm. I noticed steam seeping though the bag, assuring me that I was in for hot and fresh glory.

So what can I say about this experince?

Naturally it took longer to consume, which was nice because usually when I take that last bite of Mac, A short lived wave of sadness overcomes me. Like "I can't believe its gone! Waaaaah!" That didnt happen this time. I was satisfied, and my craving subsided. More topping and bread made it feel a tad underwhelming for a meat lover like me. I would probably get a mac jr any other time to satisfy without going overboard.
If overboard is your goal, do it.

If not, go with the classic.

If you're a craver to just savor the flavor, mac jr is for you.

If you dont like big macs, why are you here? Carry on with your "McChicken, the best fast food sandwich."

So what kind of Mac attack do you have, /ck/?

One. Not so great. Fluffy, lack of meat, same shitty too-light bun. I don't see what McD's had in mind with this. They need a burger with an actual beef patty and a decent bun with a little tooth to it.

Had one tonight. Amazing. Big Mac alwags just didnt feel like a burger to me. The bites were unsatisfying and the thing seemed to be most bread.

The Grand Mac on the other hand is meaty, with an amazing bite. Have to open wide. The center bread slice is thicker too giving a much more balanced texture. And it fills you up.

They better not treat this thing like McRib
>>
>>8489603

If you want more cheese and sauce just order it. They won't say no.

Love Big Macs minus the meat generally being dry and bland.

Mac Jr solves that issue, and desu that shit was dope.

Leave it to McDonalds to fuck up a chance to make the Big Mac decent.

^I don't eat McDees, but I bet this^
Every year they made the Big Mac 2% smaller until people started to notice, then they introduce a "new" burger that is just the ORIGNAL size to justify raising the price. It's like how most cans and sauces are funky (smaller) sizes so they don't have to raise the price.

I work at mcdonalds. We don't have the grand mac yet (soft launch on tue), but when we do I'll make it your way. Also, the grand mac has two slices of cheese starred on the bottom.

The main issue I see with this is the 2.5 shots of sauce – it's gonna be way too much. Also the pickles are always on top of your protein as a general rule.


It's always been a nagging thought that we put cheese on top of the meat for every sandwich except for the big mac and the filet-o-fish
>>
>>8497007
Ok just had one. It's okay at best. Double Quarter Pounder is better.
>>
I just had one today coincidentally and it was delicious and large. However much like other posters say in this thread, it was quite messy to eat. Also it's 870 calories by itself so I didn't get fries or soda. I will probably never get it again because it was so delicious and i'd just buy a hundred. I will probably stick with the mini mac.

>>8497193
basically. Except the patties are "1/3 pounders"

Neither of which mean shit since 1/4 of a pound is 4 ounces. It just sounds big

more filling than the normal mac though, i suppose. But its really just more bread you're eating. I'd rather just buy two normal macs

Just a bit bigger Mac, nothing to write home about.

>>
>>8497505
It didn't, I actually went and they said it did not, so I got a pick 2 for 2.50 the mcdouble and a chicken sandwitch.
The mc double was so bad I threw it out after 2 bites.
Considering that the grand mac was ~$5.89 I can't imagine that was a good choice on their part.
I'm pretty sure their net gain would have been higher giving me a medium fry+soda(almost free) for an additional 3.49

Also before I bothered to attempt to grab a "grand mac" the grand mac has 1/6th pounders for a total of 1/3 lb of meat.
It's not 1/3 of a pound each for 2/3rd's a lb on the burger. the double quarter pounder has more meat at 1/2 lb.
Also if you are wondering why I bothered to run the numbers before I made an attempt on a 4chain post, it's because I work in what is a nearly literal food desert. It's crazy.
Before I started working here I had no idea what they meant by this term. When I go to lunch I've got the option of a few Chinese places McDonald and that's pretty much it. Grocery stores are far enough away that I can't get there and come back in time if I want to go to the store at lunch.
>>
>>8488427
Wait, so it is the same fucking Big Mac, but just surrounded with a bigger bun and more toppings and sauce?

When will they just put the fucking Angus patties in there instead of those $1 menu patties?

No, for some reason the nips, europoors, and third worlders get the best McDs grub.
>>
Using the McDonalds nutrition calculator, we can evaluate the true value of this meal by breaking down the ingredients by their macronutrient profiles.

So the entire sandwich represents 52g of fat, 41g of protein, and 62g of carbs

Removing the bun and mac sauce brings this down to 30 grams of fat, 30 grams of protein, and 6g of carbs.

Yes, the bun literally contains almost half as much protein as the beef patty.

If we remove everything but the beef patty, we are down to 23g of fat and 25g of protein which approximately a 4 oz serving of meat.

You're literally paying $4.89+ tax for less than 4 ounces of beef

I had one a couple of days ago. It was a lot bigger than I thought it was going to be.

Tastes great, very sloppy (which can be a good thing), and really filling. Got a medium combo and almost couldn't finish it all.

well the big mac has 1/10th pounders for patties for a total of 1/5th pound of meat so it's still more than a big mac
>>
>>8500275
More cheese, more meat, more bread, more sauce. By virtue of those, more onions and lettuce. Still the same two pickles
>>
>>8498907
I would love to try those foods out. And Olympics would be the best time to try out their stuff from around the world. Just as long as they avoid a repeat of 1984, it would be a good test of bringing those things stateside.

Besides, their menu is too large nowadays. Too many items means they can't have a good enough quality control on every item before it gets pulled.

>>8497115
I see your point about the sauce and its something I was debating as well. Bottom line is the top bun needs sauce. Its too dry otherwise. The bottom bun does as well and helps prevent sliding. The middle could do with out but a little bit could help hold the ingredients in. I guess it depends on the amount of sauce you put on each. I guess if you are using a pump it could be too much. I was thinking a single thin pass with an offset spatula just to cement it and hold it together. The point of the pickles underneath the patty and above the middle bun is to lighten the middle bun a bit and to also give you a crunch halfway through and because there is already so much going on on the top bun as well as the fact that its less prone to sliding there.

I never understood the cheese under the meat thing or the bare buns on most of your sandwiches and I don't understand why something with two patties would only have one slice of cheese.

I also prefer diced pickles and onion to slices because you get more even distribution and you don't run the risk of taking a bite and having it all come off at once. Every bite should be more or less the same and encompass all ingredients.

I also don't understand sauce, lettuce, and onion on the middle bun leaving the top barren. The middle becomes mush and the top is dry.
