"There's something for everyone to love at McDonald's." At least that's what McDonald's says (and Lebron James stands by the claim, too).
If you feel the promise falls a little flat, you might've missed Mickey D's "secret menu." Tired of that classic Big Mac? Why not try a McGangBang instead? Feel that your McNuggets could be a bit more sprightly? Next time, order them "fresh."
These mystical order transformations appear on multiple online sources. Sites like #HackTheMenu and SecretMenuholic offer tips and tricks for fast food fans who like to order outside of the box. If you're curious how to get fish, chicken and beef all under the same bun (and who wouldn't be?), these hacks are for you.
Do note, these items are definitely more "hacks" than unique food orders. But, if you think hard about it, McDonald's serves about four basic foods and dresses them up with sauces and McNames to feign variety. Nevertheless, some of these hacks will actually save you a couple of bucks, while others will just take your tastebuds on a little trip around the world's most beloved fast food restaurant.
Without further ado, here are 13 of McDonald's off-the-menu items to give a whirl:
