For those of you out there who visit McDonald’s restaurants and always feel like the burgers just don’t cut it, you may soon have an option to satisfy your cravings. This new burger, nick named the third pounder, is currently available at 600 restaurants in California and weighs in at 1/3 of a pound instead of the previously dominating 1/4 pounder.
“The initial reaction has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Frisbie, who helped conduct the initial tests of the burger during the past four months at two of his family’s 17 franchises in the Anaheim area. “The sales really surprised us”
This is an interesting move by the monster fast food chain due to recent controversy over McDonald’s contributions to the huge US obesity problem. Nevertheless, it appears there is a market for the new burger, and perhaps it will soon be available at a golden arches near you.
