Four brand new burgers are coming to a McDonald’s near you this week

For a limited time only.

McDonald’s customers in Ireland will be able to treat themselves to a selection of brand new burgers, as well as a couple of old favourites, when the Great Tastes of America range returns to McDonald’s restaurants throughout the country this week.

Inspired by the USA’s most iconic states and foods, McDonald’s Ireland has created six unique burgers, four of which are new, that will only be available in the UK and Ireland for an eight-week period starting on Wednesday (1 May).

The tasty burgers are inspired by the tastes of New York, Mississippi, Kansas, South Carolina, Alabama and Nashville, each made with their own twist (see list below).

Aside from the burgers, meanwhile, McDonald’s Ireland is also bringing back the side of Nacho Cheese Wedges, which will be available during the eight-week period.

Michelle Graham-Clare, Marketing Director at McDonald’s UK and Ireland, said: "We know customers are always on the look-out for new twists to our much-loved burgers. The Great Tastes of America range really hit the spot last time with their tasty ingredients, but we wanted to bring an even more totally unforgettable experience to them on this occasion.

"By bringing new flavours and variations together with familiar favourites, we hope our customers love these great tastes of the United States… which are only available in the UK and Ireland - sorry America!"
