McDonald’s new Italian burgers replace wildly popular burger

McDonald’s is giving customers a taste of summer with its new seasonal menu, but its arrival means fans will have to say goodbye to one of its other popular items.

The fast-food joint launched the first half of its new summer menu last week, and with it the arrival of the always-delicious mozzarella dips, a McFlurry tiramisu and two new Italian-inspired burgers.

There’s an Italian-themed item available for chicken and beef fans in the form of the Italian Stack and Crispy Chicken Italiano, and hopefully they’ll be delicious enough to entice fans of something a bit spicier – or should I say McSpicier.

The popular McSpicy burger arrived on McDonald’s menu earlier this year after earlier success with customers, and featured a spicy chicken breast fillet topped with lettuce and mayonnaise between a toasted sesame seed bun.

Heatstroke may not have been for everyone, but its disappearance from the menu has left some fans desperate.

“WHO ALLOWED MCDONALD’S TO STOP MAKING THE MCSPICY,” wrote one fan, while another commented, “Absolutely beyond devastated to find out the McSpicy has left McDonald’s.”

A third commented: “McDonald’s don’t have to take McSpicy and garlic cheese bites off the menu. This was the best combo I’ve ever tasted man.”

Although the McSpicy went well, it’s always good to try new things.

Fans of the chicken burger might just find a new favorite in the new Italian menu that promises to bring fresh new flavors to its chicken with the help of some added herbs.

The Crispy Chicken Italiano will offer McSpicy fans the same crispy chicken tenderloin, but this time the burger will also come with a slice of juicy tomato, mozzarella, basil pesto-style sauce, red onion and of lettuce. Not only that, but the regular bun will be replaced with a soft, freshly toasted ciabatta style bun to really give you that Mediterranean feel.

If that doesn’t tickle your taste buds, you can always opt for the Italian Stack which includes two 100% beef patties, mozzarella, onions, crispy onions, a rich tomato sauce, lettuce and a creamy cheese, all wrapped in a freshly toasted bun, flavored with tomato and basil.

Of course, McDonald’s menu will still feature all the classics, such as the Big Mac and boxes of chicken nuggets, and the new mozzarella sticks are sure to make the perfect accompaniment to any meal.
