Is This McDonald’s Super Secret Menu Item For Real?
Alright, McDonald’s fans, prepare to have your mind blown. Apparently, there is a super secret menu item that you can get at the Golden Arches, but only for a few precious minutes each day. It may be the perfect excuse to take a mid-morning break from work.
TikToker Tommy Winkler, who also goes by “The Food Guy,” posted a video about something informally named the “McBrunch Burger.” No, you’ve never seen it on a McDonald’s menu or in any of the fast food chain’s commercials. The “McBrunch Burger” consists of:
- Two cheeseburger patties
- Hash brown
- Sesame seed bun
Your cardiologist just called…
When it comes to getting a “McBrunch Burger,” timing is everything. You can only order it around 10:35 a.m. Why is it only available for that brief sliver of time each day? Because that’s when your friendly neighborhood Mickey D’s shifts from breakfast to lunch mode, so they have items from both menus available at that particular moment.
Tommy Winkler went to a McDonald’s during the key time of day when breakfast and lunch are available at the same time. In his TikTok, we see Winkler pulling up to the drive-thru at exactly 10:35 a.m. and asking for the “McBrunch Burger.” After a few seconds, a McDonald’s team member tells him they’re out of scrambled eggs and offers him egg whites instead. Winkler accepts the substitution, pays $5 for the behemoth burger, and scarfs it down. It got a thumbs up from “The Food Guy.”
This Mickey D’s mashup is actually a great way to reduce food waste. If they weren’t willing to make the “McBrunch Burger” available to customers, all those leftover eggs, bacon, and hash browns might go right into the trash. It’s almost our civic duty to go and order one every day!
