McDonald's Angus Burgers

McDonalds is trying to introduce a more "gourmet" burger with the Angus Third Pounder. The beef is USDA inspected Angus meat.

The three varieties are the Deluxe, Angus Mushroom and Swiss, and Angus Bacon and Cheese:

  • Angus Deluxe: American cheese, sliced red onions and sliced red tomatoes, iceberg lettuce, mustard and mayonnaise.
  • Angus Mushroom and Swiss: sauteed mushrooms, Swiss cheese and mayonnaise.
  • Angus Bacon and Cheese: bacon, American cheese, sliced red onions, mustard, ketchup and pickles.

"Customers are looking for great-tasting burgers at a value that only McDonald's can offer," spokeswoman Danya Proud said. "These premium burgers are a tremendous value compared to similar fast-casual and midscale offers."

The estimated retail price is $3.99 each. They will be available in all U.S. states.

There is no evidence to say that these burgers are actually healthier. In fact Angus beef generally has more trans fat than the regular beef patties.
