Searching for more combinations of the same ingredients, McDonald's rolls out some discount specialty sandwiches. The $2 Bacon Cheddar Hot 'n Spicy McChicken and the Bacon McDouble accompany the $1 BBQ Ranch Burger in this staple of basic burger goodness.
I tried the Bacon McDouble and it is everything you expect it to be. A standard double cheeseburger with a single slice of American cheese, two small burger patties, bacon, and all the normal base burger toppings.
The burger was salty but how could it not be? It tasted like it should and for two bucks it's doing what it set out to do: offer perceived value on a menu board plagued by price creep.
Still, I commend McDonald's for taking a page from Taco Bell's playbook. I imagine the people out at McDonald's HQ with a dart board of all their kitchen ingredients and they just throw six darts and out comes a new menu item. Can a beef/chicken combo sandwich be far behind?
