Get ready, America, because McDonald’s is bringing a blockbuster burger from down under straight to your taste buds, and people are absolutely buzzing about it!

The fast-food giant just dropped the news that the Double Big Mac, a staple on the Australian McDonald’s menu, will be making a limited-time appearance in U.S. stores starting January 24. Aussies have been savoring this colossal creation since March 2020, and now, it’s America’s turn to experience what McDonald’s aptly describes as “double the fun.”

Fast-food enthusiasts in the Northern Hemisphere are in for a treat, as this mammoth menu item is set to send their tastebuds into overdrive. McDonald’s fans Down Under have been enjoying this hefty burger featuring four beef patties and generous helpings of the signature Big Mac sauce for quite some time now.

The news of the Double Big Mac’s imminent arrival has triggered a range of reactions. While some are eagerly welcoming this epic sandwich, others are quick to label it as “disgusting.” One enthusiastic American declared on Facebook, “I’m gonna eat one of those, then feel disgusting after, but I bet I’ll enjoy every minute.” Comments like “Yum! I can’t wait!” and “I’ll take 3 please” highlight the anticipation building among fast-food aficionados.

Over on Twitter, the excitement is equally palpable, with users expressing their enthusiasm for this supersized burger. Yet, not everyone is on board with introducing such a “obscene” burger to Americans, especially given the nation’s high rates of obesity. Critics argue that the rest of the world might have a point in their opinions about Americans needing a burger that could contribute to weight concerns.

The Double Big Mac, adorned with pickles, lettuce, onions, and American cheese, all nestled between a sesame seed bun, has already left its mark in multiple countries, including Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the UK. Some users even pointed out its presence in Canada, with one commenting, “You can get this in Canada, it’s deadly,” while another from the UK chimed in, “I’m from the UK, and you can buy these here.”

This monster burger, packing a punch with 680 calories, might also come with a hefty price tag. Reports suggest it could set diners back more than $20 after McDonald’s increased its prices by 14 percent in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2023. With one branch charging as much as $18 for a Big Mac combo meal, including medium fries and a medium soft drink, this burger is making headlines again after a limited-time stint in the U.S. market back in 2020, where it received rave reviews.

While Australians are already accustomed to enjoying classic McDonald’s burgers in “double” sizes, such as the “Double Quarter Pounder,” “Double McChicken,” and “Double Fillet-O-Fish,” Americans are gearing up for a supersized adventure that promises to make waves in the fast-food scene.
