McDonald's Big Mac

Newer Older

While out and about today trying to prepare for the latest end of the world snowstorm i stopped in McDonald's in North Attleboro Ma.

I had a Big Mac and it was very tasty but it did not look much like the ones i see advertised.

I enjoy this sort of meal once in a while but that is it !


The Big Mac is a hamburger sandwich sold by the international fast-food chain McDonald's. It is one of the company's signature products, along with the Quarter Pounder. It consists of two 1.6 oz (45.4 g) beef patties, special "Mac" sauce (a Thousand Island dressing variant), iceberg lettuce, American cheese, pickles, and onions, all served on a three part sesame seed bun.

The Big Mac was created by Jim Delligatti, one of Ray Kroc's earliest franchisees, who was operating several restaurants in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area. It was designed to compete with a similar Big Boy sandwich. Customer response to the Big Mac was so good that it rolled out nationally in 1967. One of its most distinctive feature is a middle slice of bread ("club" layer) used to stabilize contents and prevent spillage.

The Big Mac is known worldwide and is often used as a symbol of American capitalism. The Economist has used it as a reference point to determine the cost of living in different countries — the Big Mac Index — as it is so widely available and is comparable across markets. This index is sometimes referred to as Burgernomics.

The name comes from a 1975 advertising campaign featuring a list of the Big Mac's ingredients: "Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun." The precise recipe for what McDonald's itself now calls Big Mac Sauce remains a secret, but it is recognized as a variant of Thousand Island dressing.

Big Mac Sauce is delivered to McDonald's restaurants in sealed canisters designed by Sealright, from which it is meant to be directly dispensed using a special calibrated "sauce gun" that dispenses a specified amount of the sauce for each pull of the trigger. Its design is similar to a caulking gun.

    Mmm I like a good meal of McDonald's every so often. I prefer a quarter pounder, though. But, I love me some fries.
