In 1940 McDonald’s revolutionize the entire restaurant industry and now the world-wide chain has announced plans to improve their burgers with “small but tasty improvements.

On April 17, McDonald’s announced that its burgers will be undergoing a few small changes to make them “better than ever,” according to the golden arches.

The Chicago-based fast-food chain will roll out “softer, pillowy” golden-brown buns, gooier cheese and a “juicier, caramelized” taste as onions will be placed on patties while they’re still on the grill. This change will hopefully increase sales while improving their classic menu items such as the Big Mac and double cheeseburger.

According to the golden arch’s announcement on April 17th, the company’s in-house chefs have been cooking up the following improvements:

  • “Softer, pillowy buns” that will be freshly toasted.
  • A new and improved melted cheese that the chain says will make you want to “savor every last bit off the wrapper.”
  • Burger patties which will feature a “juicier, caramelized flavor” from adding white onions while the burgers are still on the grill.
  • “Even more of everyone’s favorite Big Mac sauce,” because the more sauce, the better.

“I’ll always remember my first burger from McDonald’s. And now my culinary team and I have the best job in the world: thinking about ways to bring even more of that iconic McDonald’s taste to fans,” said Chef Chad Schafer, McDonald’s USA’s senior director of culinary innovation, in a press release.

“We found that small changes, like tweaking our process to get hotter, meltier cheese and adjusting our grill settings for a better sear, added up to a big difference in making our burgers more flavorful than ever,” he said.

The new formulations have been rolled out internationally, in Australia, Canada and Belgium. The burger changes are making their full American debut later this year, however several McDonald’s on the West Coast and in the Southwest have already started to see the new and improved burgers. Cities such as Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Sacramento, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Denver, Boise, Tucson, and surrounding cities. Customers nationwide will be able to get their hands on the new burgers nationwide by 2024.

According to McDonald’s, to celebrate the new and improved burger, making a return, is the McDonaldland resident mischief-maker is “on the loose” in select cities, so you might see him pop up in your neck of the woods.

“When you spot his notorious cape and striped outfit in your city, you’ll know that’s when you can head to your local McDonald’s to get your hands on our best-ever burgers,” McDonald’s says. “After all, if everyone’s favorite burger thief is on the hunt for them — we know they’re worth it. Robble. Robble.”
