mcdonalds 1-2-3 menu

In my email this week I received an ad for McDonald's new 1,2,3 Dollar menu. Proudly advertising lower-priced offerings from $1 to $3 I scrolled through the email and saw some of the menu offerings (below). But what's wrong with this picture?

Um, yeah. Where's the $1 item? Well, turns out McDonald's probably didn't want to highlight the fact that there's nothing really new for a buck. Here's the breakdown:


  • Cheeseburger
  • McChicken
  • Sausage Burrito
  • Any Size Soft Drink


  • Bacon McDouble
  • 2pc Buttermilk Crispy Tenders
  • Sausage McGriddles
  • Small McCafe


  • Triple Cheeseburger
  • New Classic Chicken Sandwich
  • Sausage McMuffin with Egg
  • Happy Meal

So, some new pricing on some old stuff but the dollar items are the same ones they've been for a while. OK, fine. But if you're going to advertise a $1 to $3 menu then it'd be nice to include a mention of what you can get on the lower end.
