Have You Tried the New Mac sandwiches? There’s A Perfect One For Each Moment!

This is a sponsored post; however, all opinions are my own. #BigMacForThat

I remember how eating at McDonald’s was a big event when I was in high school back in my home country Guatemala. We would go on Fridays or Saturdays with my friends and have a great time hanging out while we enjoyed Big Mac burgers, sundaes and apple pies. McDonald’s was our hangout spot and I had first dates there, met great friends there and have so many fond memories. I had my first job at Interfer (an annual feria) selling perfumes, and a big group of us would head to McDonald’s when our shift was done. Still, to this day, going to McDonald’s brings back great memories, especially when sharing it with friends and familia.

Now McDonald’s has added two new burgers to the Mac family. The Grand Mac is packed with more meat and more taste taking the Big Mac experience to a higher level. The Mac Jr. is perfect for those of us looking for a slightly smaller portion size, but still packed with the great taste of the Big Mac.

The Big Mac burger has been around for decades. Adding the Mac Jr. and Grand Mac burgers adds more options for everyone who loves the unique taste of the Big Mac. The Big Mac was always a favorite, but it was usually too big for me, so I would share it with someone. Now I can have a Mac Jr. which is just the right size for me! For my husband the Grand Mac is just perfect to satisfy his bigger appetite and his love of meat.

On Friday my husband, a friend, and I decided to stop at McDonald’s to celebrate the beginning of the weekend. It felt like old times, sharing together in a place that always brings me so many great memories. We ordered the Big Mac, the Grand Mac and the Mac Jr, all with the delicious Big Mac sauce. I also ordered a salad and the delicious cheese and guava pastelitos* that I love so much.

Now there is a Mac for every moment, big or small. There’s a #BigMacForThat when you just want to take a break and celebrate friendships, spend time together or celebrate the beginning of the weekend with the unique and special taste and swagger of the Big Mac. Whether you think the Big Mac size is just right or you want a little bit more or a little bit less now there is a #BigMacForThat!

Head to McDonald’s before the new members of the Mac familia are gone

and celebrate those special moments big or small and share your #BigMacForThat moment!

    It’s nice to see Macs in different sizes! I’d go for the Mac Jr. and I know my husband would pick the Grand Mac. And those fries – yum!

    I have memories of going to McDonald’s that go back decades. My sons could always spot those golden arches from miles away.

    Big Mac is my favourite thing along with the fries at McDonalds! YES – I just learned that you can get a side of the sauce. This is awesome that you can get it in different sizes now too. I’ll stay with my classic though. It’s sooo delicious!

    Some times I just get a strong craving for fast food and I love how McDonalds has the smaller versions in the junior sizes available. I’ll have to try the Mac Jr next time!

    I’ve only been to McDonald’s once since they’ve come out with this and I got the new fish basket. It was delicious! I saw that these were on the menu though. It’s great to have options.

    We don’t eat very often at McDonalds because for one we live in the country and just don’t go to town that often. I can remember as a kid going there was a treat and something always special.

    My husband has tried it and he likes it. He has been a fan of the Big Mac since he was a kid.

    I haven’t been to McDonald’s in a while, but I love that they have different size Big Macs now. I really need to get there, especially since it’s also shamrock shake time!

  10. Jenn @ EngineerMommy

    I didn’t know they came out with new sandwiches. I am totally going to go try one this weekend. McDonald’s is delicious and convenient – perfect for a busy mom!

    That’s nice of McDonalds to cater to different preferences. Sometimes, you just want a Big Mac but can’t really finish the whole thing. I love this new idea! Thanks for letting me know.

    I am not a huge fan of the big mac but it is my husbands favorite. It is great that they now have size variations for when youre wanting a snack.

    Believe it or not, I have never had a Big Mac or any at McDonalds. I love their breakfast sandwiches, but I just haven’t found a hamburger I like there yet. Maybe the Grand Mac is it.

  15. Danik

    No thank you…..only would eat McD’s in an emergency. As a fitness freak/marathon runner, I like to stay away from processed food. Now if I saw this twenty years ago….hmmmmmmm LOL. Still cant beat a McD’s breakfast 😀
