While the cheesy bacon fries did have a limited try-out last year, these three menu items’ rollout will happen nationwide. The new menu items are set to hit restaurants starting January 30. The exact duration of this launch is unclear.

McDonald’s is always trying to be a leader in the industry. While the brand continues to use its scale for good, it cannot ignore consumer demand for tasty food. Although these menu items might not be trendy, the represent an ingredient that is always popular bacon.

Adding bacon to two of its iconic burgers isn’t necessarily a huge stretch. This idea makes sense and could become a menu staple. It wouldn’t be hard to have a bacon option always available.

The cheesy bacon fries could be the next late night favorite food. While the menu item uses bacon bits, not pieces of bacon, the dish should still be tasty. As long as the ratio of cheese sauce to fries is proportional, it should be tasty. No one wants too much or too little cheese sauce with their fries.
