OAK BROOK, ILL. – McDonald’s Corp. is adding a trio of Quarter Pounder with Cheese burgers to its core menu in June.

The Quarter Pounder Habanero Ranch contains white cheddar cheese, applewood-smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato and a habanero-ranch sauce. The Quarter Pounder Deluxe includes American cheese, tomato, lettuce, red onion, pickles, mayonnaise and mustard. The Quarter Pounder Bacon and Cheese has American cheese, applewood-smoked bacon, red onion, pickles, ketchup and mustard.

All Quarter Pounders, including the original, will feature a new bun with 8 grams of whole grains. McDonald’s also recently debuted the Egg White Delight, a yolkless version of the Egg McMuffin, on an English muffin with 8 grams of whole grains.

The chain this month said it will discontinue Angus Third Pounders, its priciest burger at $4 to $5. The decision comes at a time when higher beef costs are crimping the quick-service industry.

The Angus Deluxe is the only Hamburger we will buy at McDonalds. Please think about it. It is the only burger that has the homemade burger flavor.

As a rancher with Angus cows, I was literally offended and embarrassed to have the word Angus associated with what McDonalds called an angus burger. They were the driest and most tasteless beef patties I have ever had. Dropping them from their menu is the best favor they could have done for me. Thanks, Mickey D's!
