Jump to modern day times and now it seems every Quick Service resturant has a secret menu. Of course anyone with a computer, an internet connection, and access to the web page hackthemenu.com, can quickly discover these secret menu items that previously only the rich and famous and in-the-know, knew about.
McDonald’s is the latest to jump into the secret menu shuffle. The PR spokesmen for McDonald’s actually credits it’s customers for coming up with the menu, which seems about right as in the example of the “Land. Sea, and Air” monstrosity. It’s a Big Mac, a Filet-O-Fish, and a McChicken all piled together between buns.
Let’s just break this down for a second:
Big Mac – Calorie count: 530
Filet o Fish – Calorie count: 390
McChicken – Calorie count: 370
Total Calorie Count: Heart Attack
On the hackthemenu.com web site, you will see plenty of restaurants that have the secret menu options. When people go to full service restaurants they often change their entree by substituting this for that, so it would make sense that fast food restaurants would also have things changed by the picky, picky, picky, general public.
We will give McDonald’s one caveat for a secret menu item that probably no other fast food chain or full service restaurant can claim.
The award is for the most elusive and rarest of secret menu items…ever! This secret menu item is like trying to find Big Foot or the Loch Ness Monster in the spelunking section of a Target. It’s so rare, that it can only be ordered between 10:30 am and 11 am, and it’s the aptly named: The Mc10:35
Its of course a Double Burger stuffed under an Egg McMuffin…and it’s a thing of beauty!
So we in the office were thinking…wow, that’s great…all these restaurants have nifty little secret menus to up their street cred…but are they becoming too normal to the fast food experience now? The niche has worn off. We at the Long Awkward Pause offices, located in beautiful Montana, (this month) have decided to come up with a secret menu of our own…but this menu involves using items from more than one fast food establishment at the same time.
And the world cried, “Genius!”
