Get Ready Britain - A Bigger Big Mac Is Coming To The UK Tomorrow

If you've been on this planet for long enough then you might have noticed a trend for your favourite snacks to shrink in size.

Happily, someone has finally decided to reverse the trend - after all, when your signature dish is known as the McDonald's Big Mac, you'd expect it to be bloody big. Now the juggernaut company appears to have listened to fans as plans are underway to bring a bigger Big Mac - called the 'Grand Big Mac' - to hungry mouths around the UK.

Not only that, but fans of the franchise will also get the Mac Jr, for those who love the taste of the burger, but don't have a lot of space in their stomach.

According to BurgerLad, the new additions will hit stores around Britain tomorrow to celebrate the infamous burger's 50th birthday.

Judging from promotional pictures, it appears the Grand Big Mac will be roughly the same height as the original but will be wider.

The news has sparked mass salivation, with people rushing to social media to express how they've all of a sudden become very hungry.

One person wrote: "Probably going to have to break my 15 months clean of McDonalds for that Grand Big Mac."

It seems as though the UK is way behind the times, with the bigger burger having been trialled in America, Spain and the Netherlands last year to see whether people had the appetite for it. Um, of course they did.

Devastatingly, the burger won't be a permanent fixture of the British menu and will only be on sale until 20 March, says BurgerLad. Let's hope the demand is so high that the company can't resist keeping it on offer.

This definitely isn't the first variation of the burger with two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions - on a sesame seed bun. Several countries received The Mega Mac or Double Big Mac, with the latter being the biggest regular hamburger ever available.

There was previously a Big Big Mac that hit Europe, the Denali Mac in Alaska, the Maharaja Mac in India (made with lamb meat rather than beef), the Chicken Big Mac in some Muslim majority countries including Pakistan, UAE, Qatar and Kuwait, and the Big Mac BLT in Australia.

Devastatingly, this latest Big Mac burger won't be a permanent fixture of the British menu and will only be on sale until 20 March, says BurgerLad. Let's hope the demand is so high that the company can't resist keeping it on offer.
