MCDONALD’S has unveiled a new McMuffin across its restaurants – but many fans are saying the same thing about it.
The Mighty McMuffin, available at 1,450 restaurants across the UK and Ireland, comes with sausage, egg, double bacon, cheese, and ketchup or brown sauce.
Before then, peckish diners could only buy the muffins with either bacon and egg, sausage and egg or doubles of both.
Or they could get the cheese and egg McMuffin on its own.
However, you couldn’t get the full combo.
But since the arrival of the new muffin, some Maccie’s fans have pointed out you can in fact make a pretty similar version yourself, and it costs less.
All you have to do is add sausage to a single bacon and egg McMuffin with cheese to get almost exactly the same item but for £3.19.
The Mighty McMuffin meanwhile costs £3.99 as a single item.
A McDonald’s spokesperson confirmed the dupe version comes with one rasher less though.
But if you’re not fussed about the extra bacon you could save yourself 80p.
One fan said on Facebook: “It’s just a McMuffin with added bacon which you can add anyway lol.”
Another added: “You can literally add bacon to all the sausage muffins anyway this is pointless.”
Plus, one person said: “Used to order these years ago. Sausage and egg McMuffin with bacon. They used to make them for us.”
It comes after McDonald’s unveiled its Christmas menu, which while featuring no new items saw a return of some festive classics.
The Big Tasty is back, as well as the festive pudding and Celebrations McFlurry.
Some items on the menu are much more expensive compared to last year though.
The Festive Pie was £1.19 last year so you’re paying 10p more this year.
Meanwhile, the Cheese Melt Dippers cost £1.89 last year, 40p cheaper compared to this year.
Plus the Cheese Melt Dippers sharebox was £5.09 last year, this year it’s £5.99 – that’s 90p more expensive.
The fast food chain has announced it is to start phasing out plastic cutlery across its Wales and England restaurants in a giant eco-push.
The company is introducing recyclable pressed-paper knives, forks and spoons.
It comes after it ditched plastic toys from happy meals, straws and stirrers in a bid to be more eco-friendly.
In other news, some McDonald’s fans have only just started realising why the chain’s spoons have a hole at the top.
And others that they’ve been using the paper ketchup pots all wrong.
