Chipotle BBQ Bacon Joins McDonald's Angus Line

McDonald's Angus Third Pounders just got bolder with the new Chipotle BBQ Bacon Angus Burger. The newest member of the Angus Third Pounder burger line is only available for a limited time through March 31.

Served with 100 percent Angus beef, bacon, Chipotle BBQ sauce, red onion rings, crinkle cut dill pickles, and melted cheese, the new Chipotle BBQ Bacon Angus is full of bold flavors, and combines the tangy sweetness of barbecue with the smoky taste of Chipotle peppers. The Chipotle BBQ Bacon Angus is also available in a Snack Wrap.

"The new Chipotle BBQ Bacon Angus Third Pounder deliciously combines the bold flavors of tangy barbecue, smoky Chipotle peppers, premium toppings, and the Angus beef our customers have come to love—now offered with the great value, quality, and convenience they have come to expect from McDonald's," says Marta Fearon, director of U.S. Marketing for McDonald's USA. "And by offering consumers a Snack Wrap or Third Pound burger option, customers can choose how they experience this new bold Angus flavor."
