McDonald's to Host 'Bacon Hour' on Tuesday
"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 Michael Haracz, McDonald's chef and manager of culinary innovation, in a press release.
The promotion comes "in celebration" of McDonald's new, limited-time bacon-inclusive menu items, including the Big Mac Bacon burger, the Quarter Pounder bacon burger, and Cheesy Bacon Fries, to be available the following day on Jan. 30 at participating restaurants, per Nation's Restaurant News.
According to McDonald's, customers hoping to take advantage of Mickey D's upcoming Bacon Hour on Jan. 29 will need to make a purchase between 4 and 5 p.m., at which point they will also receive two half-pieces of Applewood smoked bacon, to do with as they please.
Bacon-heads be warned: McDonald's says its Bacon Hour promotion will be available at "most" U.S. restaurants, but not at locations in Hawaii, Alaska or U.S. territories.
