McDonald's will launch a line of three premium six-ounce burgers made with 100 percent USDA-inspected Angus beef in restaurants in Orange, Kern, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego and Ventura counties. The price is $3.99. This starts on Monday.
Here's what they have.
Angus Bacon and Cheese: Bacon, melted American cheese, sliced red onions, mustard, ketchup and pickles.
Angus Mushroom and Swiss: Sauteed mushrooms, Swiss cheese and mayonnaise
Angus Deluxe: Topped with melted American cheese, sliced red onions and tomatoes, green leaf lettuce, mustard and mayonnaise.
The Angus is a breed of cattle that is known for tender, marbled meat. The new "Angus Third Pounder" is 760 calories with 41 grams of fat. Add bacon and the burger shoots up to 860 calories and 48 grams of fat.
And here I thought we had enough artery clogging food on the menu. How do you think Grimace got so fat? That clown stays skinny though.
