McDonald’s is shaking up its chicken sandwich lineup with a name change and the debut of two new flavors slated to hit menus at participating restaurants nationwide on March 13.
The fast-food company announced that its famous chicken sandwich will now don the famous “Mc” prefix and will be known as the “McCrispy.”
“Earning your ‘Mc’ is a true McDonald’s badge of honor,” a news release said.
To commemorate the name change, McDonald’s also announced two new flavors, Bacon Ranch and Bacon Ranch Deluxe, that will be available for a limited time at participating restaurants beginning March 13.
“Both sandwiches feature our signature chicken fillet topped with applewood smoked bacon plus a creamy new Ranch Sauce – made with buttermilk, dried herbs and spices – and served on a toasted potato roll,” a news release said.
The deluxe version of the sandwich will also include shredded lettuce and Roma tomato slices.
To wash it all down, customers will also be able to enjoy the new McDonald’s lemonade drink, made with “real lemon juice, bits of lemon pulp and real cane sugar,” according to the McDonald’s website.
