If you cast your memory back to pre-pandemic times, you may remember a very popular Maccas burger called the Quarter Pounder with bacon. While the highly sought-after burger was removed from the chain’s menu in 2019, it has finally returned.

And, not only is the Quarter Pounder with bacon back on Maccas’ menus, but the fast food giant has added another vartions of the burger – the Quarter Pounder Deluxe.

It goes without saying that the Quarter Pounder with bacon is a, well, Quarter Pounder with slices of crispy bacon added, the Quarter Pounder Deluxe will have crispy lettuce and fresh tomato added to the classic.

“Macca’s is committed to offering great quality, great tasting food to our customers,” Tim Kenward, marketing director of McDonald’s Australia said of the new additions.

“The Quarter Pounder is one of our most iconic menu items and much loved for its delicious flavour combinations and ingredients.

“We are excited to give Quarter Pounder fans even more variety with the addition of the new Quarter Pounder Deluxe and Quarter Pounder with Bacon.

“From crispy bacon to fresh lettuce and tomato, there’s something for everyone in this range.”
