McDonald's Is Testing Its BLT Burger With This Smoky Twist

As a giant fast food chain that has an impressive presence around the world, McDonald's sure knows how to keep its fans entertained. According to Eat This, Not That!, the brand came up with ambitious plans for 2021 and mentioned several new products in its line-up such as the Crispy Chicken Sandwich and a vegan item called the McPlant. Ian Borden, the company's international president said in a statement: "In the future, McPlant could extend across a line of plant-based products including burgers, chicken-substitutes, and breakfast sandwiches."

Well, McDonald's is back with another product that's currently making its way to a specific market, per Chew Boom. The Smoky BLT Quarter Pounder is in its testing phase as of now. The brand describes the new burger option as a delicious treat for anyone that enjoys bacon. The description reads, "Sink your teeth into crisp bacon, juicy tomato and fresh lettuce to reach the beefy, cheesy core of the Quarter Pounder. Did we mention the bacon? There's bacon."

The new Smoky BLT Quarter Pounder looks interesting

According to Chew Boom, the new Smoky BLT Quarter Pounder has a juicy beef patty with bacon strips, Roma tomatoes, lots of lettuce, melted American cheese, and a generous serving of smoky BLT sauce. The brand has also included another version, the Double Smoky BLT Quarter Pounder in the test. Unfortunately, many customers will have to remain patient as the burgers are only being tested in certain McDonald's outlets in Maryland at the moment.

An observant content creator, Robert Dyer, spotted the smoky burger in Bethesda, Maryland, and purchased it for $6.89 out of curiosity (via YouTube.) And what did he think of the burger? The smoky flavors worked well as far as Dyer was concerned. He loved the special sauce and reckons that the burger lived up to his expectations in terms of taste. "It turned out to be a home run, in my opinion," he said.
