McDonald’s has kicked 2021 off with a bang with the announcement that it is finally adding onion rings to its menu. 

That’s right, McDonald’s will be serving individual onion rings, as well as two new burgers featuring the tasty treat.

From Wednesday, January 20th, fast-food fans can chow down on both the Crispy BBQ McOz and the Aussie Angus burgers.

Although it is not yet known exactly how long the latest additions will be sticking around, Nakad confirmed they will only be available for a “limited time”.

On top of that, Macca’s latest limited-time dessert, the mini Nutella hotcakes, will remain available until Tuesday, February 16th.

As always, I will continue to live in hope that McDonald’s will one day bring back Mozzarella sticks.
