McDonald’s customers heartbroken as fan favourites are axed from the menu
McDonald’s fans are begging the fast food chain to keep Katsu Chicken Curry McNuggets on the menu after it announced they will be axed next week.
In a post on social media, McDonald’s warned customers they only have until Tuesday, February 9, to get their hands on the nuggets before they are replaced on the menu by six new additions.
The Big Tasty and the Galaxy Salted Caramel McFlurry will also disappear as the restaurant tweeted: “New Transfer incoming, check out our #KatsuAtMcDonalds while you still can. #DeadlineDay.”
However, it may not all be bad news as new additions will be added in their place, including Homestyle Crispy Chicken – as well as the return of the popular Mozzarella Dippers.
Fans aren’t letting the katsu nuggets go without a fight, as one person responded to the tweet to say: “DON’T YOU DARE TAKE THEM AWAY YOU COWARDS, GET RID OF THE REGULAR ONES.”
A second wrote: “Please never get rid of them they are amazing.”
A third demanded: “Noooooo keep them forever, they are bloomin’ delish.”
And another added: “Can’t believe McDonald’s are getting rid of the katsu chicken nuggets.”
The new menu, which will be available to customers at the Drive-Thru and delivery, will launch on Wednesday, February 10, and run until March 23.
One of those items added is the popular Grand Big Mac, described as “the same ingredients as a Big Mac, just bigger and better” for £5.79 – or you can opt to make it even bigger with bacon for £6.19.
A Homemade Style Crispy Chicken burger will also be introduced, complete with hot and spicy mayo.
