A few months ago Japan went crazy for the latest McDonalds burger which certainly wasn’t in keeping with the supposedly more healthy menu in the post ‘Supersize Me’ era. The introduction of the Mega Mac saw sales go through the roof and demand was so great that the burger and its four patties were only available for a limited time each day. I know of quite a few disappointed students who went home empty handed after trying to get one.
With Burger King re-entering the Japanese market recently after an absence of six years competition in the fast food field is growing and so the Mega Mac was introduced again recently and last week I finally sampled one to see what all the fuss was all about. At twice the size of a Big Mac and with all the hype I have to say that it wasn’t anything too special (was it ever likely to be?!!) and I finished it off with relative ease.
