News: McDonald's - Dollar Menu Expands to Dollar Menu & More

McDonald's has expanded the price range of the Dollar Menu with new and current items that go beyond the $1 mark and are calling it the Dollar Menu & More.

 The somewhat crowded menu now includes the previous Dollar Menu as well as five new burgers and 20-piece Chicken McNuggets.

You may remember reading about the menu expansion as it was tested earlier this year. Some of the items tested, notably the Dijon Swiss Burger, didn't make the initial launch but don't be surprised if you see them in the future.

There are five new burgers/sandwiches range from $1 to $2 and include:

- The Bacon McDouble is probably the most familiar of the new burger and is essentially a McDouble with bacon for $2. That means is comes with two beef patties, a slice of American cheese, thick-cut applewood-smoked bacon, minced onions, ketchup, mustard, and pickles on a regular hamburger bun.

Nutritional Info - McDonald's Bacon McDouble - 5.8 oz (165g)

Sodium - 1120mg
Carbs - 34g (Sugar - 7g)

- The Buffalo Ranch McChicken which is a McChicken (breaded chicken and lettuce on a plain bun) with Buffalo sauce and ranch sauce instead of mayo. The price is the same as the original version at $1.

- The Bacon Buffalo Ranch McChicken is the same as the above Buffalo Ranch McChicken but with added applewood-smoked bacon for $1 more ($2 total).

- Like it sounds, the Bacon Cheddar McChicken adds bacon and pasteurized process white cheddar to the standard McChicken sandwich. Somehow adding cheese and bacon costs the same as just adding bacon and this one comes in at $2.

- The BBQ Ranch Burger went by the name "Southwest Burger" during testing. It is offered for $1 and features a hamburger patty, a slice of pasteurized process white cheddar, zesty barbecue ranch sauce, and chile lime tortilla strips on a plain hamburger bun.

Nutritional Info - McDonald's BBQ Ranch Burger - 4.1 oz (116g)

The McChicken variants are also available with the Hot 'n Spicy McChicken patty for those of you looking for more heat.

The 20-piece McNuggets is offered at $5 (which is actually a penny more than before in my area when it was part of the Extra Value Menu)
