McDonald’s has been making some big changes lately.. Earlier this year, they introduced their new fresh beef Quarter Pounder burgers (which are made to order and are delicious), and now with the announcement that their “classic burgers” no longer contain artificial preservatives, artificial flavors, or added colors from artificial sources.
Keep in mind that the pickles that McDonald’s uses still contain an artificial preservative, so if you’re trying to “eat clean”, then simply ask them to hold the pickles.
The classic burgers include the Hamburger, Cheeseburger, Double Cheeseburger, McDouble, Quarter Pounder with Cheese, Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese and Big Mac.
“From switching to 100% fresh beef in our quarter-pound burgers, cooked right when ordered, to removing artificial preservatives in our Chicken McNuggets, and committing to cage-free eggs by 2025, we have made significant strides in evolving the quality of our food,” said Chris Kempczinski, McDonald’s USA President. “We know quality choices are important to our customers, and this latest positive change to our classic burgers demonstrates our committed journey to leading with the customer and building a better McDonald’s.”
Kudos to McDonald’s for listening to their customers and making changes to their menu that their guests can feel good about. And they are not stopping there, as they also committed to sustainably sourcing all McCafé coffee by 2020, and transitioning to cage-free eggs by 2025.
That said, we don’t want to see all of the bad stuff go away. So how about bringing back those yummy deep fried apple pies for those of us who want to indulge a bit on our cheat days?? ?
