McDonald's' New Italian Burgers Are Replacing A Hugely Popular Burger
| Last updated
McDonald's is offering customers a taste of summer with its new seasonal menu, but its arrival does mean fans will have to bid goodbye to one of its other popular items.
The fast-food restaurant launched the first half of its new summer menu last week, and with it came the arrival of the ever-delicious mozzarella dippers, a tiramisu McFlurry and two new Italian-inspired burgers.
There's an Italian-themed item available for fans of both chicken and beef in the form of the Italian Stack and the Crispy Chicken Italiano, and hopefully they'll prove delicious enough to win over fans of something a bit spicier - or should I say McSpicier.

The popular McSpicy burger arrived on the McDonald's menu earlier this year following previous success with customers, and featured a spicy chicken breast fillet topped with lettuce and mayo between a toasted sesame seed bun.
The kick of heat might not have been for everyone, but its disappearance from the menu has left some fans in despair.
"WHO AUTHORISED MCDONALD'S TO STOP MAKING THE MCSPICY," one fan wrote, while another commented: "Absolutely beyond devastated to discover the McSpicy has gone from McDonald's."
A third commented: "McDonald's have no business removing the McSpicy and garlic cheese bites from the menu. That was the best combo I've ever tasted man."
Though the McSpicy evidently went down well, it's always good to try new things.

Fans of the chicken burger might just find a new favourite in the new Italian menu which promises to bring fresh new flavours to its chicken with the help of some added herbs.
The Crispy Chicken Italiano will offer McSpicy fans that same crispy chicken fillet, but this time the burger will also be accompanied by a juicy tomato slice, mozzarella, a basil pesto style sauce, red onion and lettuce. Not only that, but the regular bun will be switched out for a soft, freshly toasted ciabatta style bun to really give you that Mediterranean feel.
If that doesn't get your tastebuds tingling, then you can always opt for the Italian Stack which features two 100% beef patties, mozzarella, onions, crispy onions, a rich tomato sauce, lettuce and a smooth cheese sauce, all of which comes packed within a freshly toasted, tomato-and-basil flavoured bun.
Of course, the McDonald's menu will still offer up all the classics, such as the Big Mac and boxes of chicken nuggets, and the new mozzarella sticks are sure to make a perfect side-order to any meal.
