Farmers know bacon makes everything better, but McDonald’s is finally putting diners’ love of bacon to the test during “Bacon Hour.”
On Tuesday, Jan. 29, from 4 to 5 p.m. local time, you can order bacon on any menu item with no charge. Yes, you can get bacon on sandwiches, McNuggets or your McFlurry with no additional charge. The nation-wide promotion adds two half pieces of bacon on the side of any purchase and to whatever item customers wish (one per person with any order).
The idea came to celebrate bacon’s limited time arrival to the Classics—the Big Mac Bacon burger, Quarter Pounder Bacon burger and Cheesy Bacon Fries.
“When we said there’s no such thing as too much bacon, we weren’t kidding. January 29, we’ll be upping the bacon ante—the bac-ante, if you will—and celebrating this glorious food favorite like never before,” said Chef Michael Haracz, McDonald’s Manager of Culinary Innovation. “I love bacon. America loves bacon. I really can’t wait to see the crazy and daring combinations our customers put together.”
