You might remember last year, when I posted that McDonald's was testing three new varieties of their signature Quarter Pounder burger as a possible replacement for Angus Third Pounders. They've since gotten rid of the Angus Third Pounder and the new Quarter Pounder variants are slated to arrive mid-June of this year (i.e. next month). Some locations have already started to offer them.

McDonald's is also replacing their paper-thin bacon and switching to thick-cut Applewood-smoked bacon (like Wendy's).

Here's the three new Quarter Pounders and what you can expect from them:

The Bacon Habanero Ranch Quarter Pounder features a quarter pound beef patty, pasteurized processed white cheddar, thick-cut applewood-smoked bacon, habanero ranch sauce, tomato, leaf lettuce, and toasted, bakery-style bun (the same one used for their premium chicken sandwiches).

The Deluxe Quarter Pounder is basically an Angus Deluxe Third Pounder but with a quarter-pound beef patty and bakery-style bun. The rest is the same: American cheese, tomato, lettuce, crinkle-cut pickles, red onions, mayo, and mustard.

Similarly, the Quarter Pounder Bacon and Cheese is a Bacon and Cheese Angus Third Pounder, but with a Quarter Pounder patty, Applewood-smoked bacon, and bakery-style bun. Like the Bacon and Cheese Angus, it consists of ketchup, mustard, American cheese, crinkle-cut pickles, and red onions.

The only Angus Third Pounder that didn't get a direct Quarter Pounder replacement was the Mushroom and Swiss (although it's possible we might see it in the future).
