McDonald's Launches New Maple BBQ & Bacon Quarter Pounder Themed Merch

By Thomas Kenzaki

One of McDonald’s fan favourite burgers is getting a delicious upgrade this summer. You can now get the new Maple BBQ & Bacon Quarter Pounder for a limited time in Canada.

This sweet and smokey twist on the Quarter Pounder features a 100% Canadian quarter pound beef patty, creamy maple bbq sauce, hickory-smoked bacon strips, crispy onions, two slices of processed cheddar cheese and pickles.

As if the new Quarter Pounder wasn’t enough of a gift, McDonald’s is also releasing limited-edition maple & bacon themed merch and offering Canadians the chance to win some.

The contest starts August 17th and runs until September 6th. For the chance to win you’ll need to order any Quarter Pounder sandwich or Extra Value Meal using the McDonald’s app. There are 3 chances to win with each contest period lasting one week.

Some of the maple & bacon-themed merch you’ll be able to win include a tracksuit, bucket hat, socks, and a bottle of Creamy Maple BBQ sauce. Full details of the contest can be found here.

The new Maple BBQ & Bacon Quarter Pounder looks delicious and the accompanying merch line is as the kids say, straight fire. Make sure to try it soon as it’s only here for a limited time and you might just win some fun merch while doing so.

    • Interesting that it has less sugar. I guess they replace the ketchup, which is basically syrup.

    • Sounds good but I hope we can still get a grand Big Mac.

      Ingredients for the sauce:
      Same for all their "habanero/ghost pepper" burgers. Add spicy sauce & call it a day

    • Maybe just get the regular quarter pounder as takeout, go home and apply a generous portion of Longo's Freestone Peach Ghost Pepper sauce instead. On sale (50cents off) in the current Longo's flyer.

      What a lineup. I have no idea what Mustard Bran is (outer coating of mustard seeds???).

      I read in another thread that someone emailed about this... Response was something, something, COVID, something, COVID... So who know's when it will be back.

      I just found out that some restaurants have McGriddles back. That's my guilty pleasure once in a while but my local McDonalds hasn't had them in quite some time.
