Starting this week, local McDonald’s franchises will be offering the Grand Mac and Mac Jr.  The two new items will be available for a limited time on McDonald’s Florida menu in advance of a national rollout in early 2017, the company said.

The two are twists on the original Big Mac which boasts two 100 percent all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, and onions on a sesame seed bun. 062112 OPENLATE 3

The Grand Mac is made with two 100 percent pure beef patties for a total of one-third pound with two slices of  American cheese and special sauce served on a larger sesame seed bun with lettuce, onions and pickles.

The Mac Jr. is a single-layer Big Mac that’s easier to eat on the go.

“The Big Mac is a legend and a great-tasting burger with hints of pickle relish, mustard, garlic and onions,” said McDonald’s Chef Mike Haracz. “We listened to our customers who told us they wanted different ways to enjoy the one-of-a-kind Big Mac taste.  The classic combination of ingredients remains timeless and customers around the world continue to enjoy its signature taste.”
