McDonald’s fans fuming as popular item is axed in big menu shake-up | The Sun

MCDONALD'S fans are not happy after the fast food giant removed a beloved breakfast item from its menu recently.

Potato waffles, which went down a treat, were removed from the McDonald's menu in December ahead of the restaurant's January shake-up.

Fans were left devastated after realising the item had only been on the menu for a short amount of time.

They took to Twitter to share their disappointment.

One gutted customer wrote: "I just want McDonald’s mini potato waffles back."

While another said: "McDonald’s taking the potato waffles off the breakfast menu has ruined my life."

Another upset fan tweeted: "McDonald’s took away the mini waffle potato things from their breakfast menu no one talk to me."

Potato waffles were a staple breakfast item since October, but were axed in November.

It comes as the fast food giant got rid of its Christmas items yesterday (January 3).

The items were only ever meant to stick around for a limited period as part of the McDonald's Christmas menu.

Food lovers will pay £3.29 for just the wrap or for £6.49 as a meal, though prices can vary depending on location.

It'll be made with either crispy chicken breast or grilled chicken and then spicy sriracha sauce, cucumber, slivered onions, and lettuce, in a soft toasted wrap.

It's also revamping its menu by launching a Double McPlant burger to its menu – and it will be available in all restaurants from today too.

How do I find my nearest McDonald's?

If you're planning on taking a trip to McDonald's, you'll want to know where your nearest branch is.

The chain has a restaurant locator tool on its website you can use to find your nearest one – and check what time it opens.

Bear in mind that McDonald's serves breakfast every day until 11am.

After that, the menu switches to the normal menu serving meals such as burgers, chicken nuggets and more.

How can I save on my McDonald's order?

There are plenty of ways you can save on your next trip to McDonald's.

You should choose your branch wisely – menu prices can vary across different restaurants just a couple of miles apart.

We've seen Big Mac meals up to 30p cheaper before, which added up over the course of a year could save you a fair few pounds.

You can also get freebies on your birthday if you've got the My McDonald's app.

Remember to log your date of birth on the app though, otherwise you'll miss out.

You can get a Big Mac and fries for just £1.99 as well if you fill out the quick feedback survey following your last visit.

All you'll need is your receipt which should have been issued no more than 60 days after your visit.
