McDonald's France to Put Fancy Cheeses on Hamburgers
The inconceivable is happening in France: McDonald's is using real AOC cheeses on their burgers. It's almost enough motivation to get me on a plane over there just to try it. Here's hoping that the next step for McDonald's will be Rogue River Blue and Pleasant Ridge Reserve on Big Macs throughout the US. For now, we'll have to watch enviously from across the pond as French burgers get all-star treatment. The question is, will McDonald's experience a boost in sales?
From February 15 to March 27, cheeseburgers at McDonald's in France will get more than just the the typical processed yellow stuff Americans get: three different burgers will be topped with AOC-certified French cheeses including Cantal, Fourme D'Ambert, and Saint-Nectaire. (A fourth generic chevre option is also available.)
And as if those French hamburgers weren't French enough, they're going to make them even Frenchier but putting them on a baguette and slapping some "sauce a fondu" on them.
