McDonald’s Big Mac Family | Review & Giveaway

Thank you for sharing!

Disclaimer: This post is a collaboration with the Tampa Bay Bloggers and McDonald’s of Tampa Bay. I received free product and gift card in exchange for promotion of the new Big Macs. All opinions are my own. 

McDonald’s restaurants in Florida have announced two new sandwiches inspired by the Big Mac. For a limited time, McDonald’s customers in Tampa Bay can enjoy the new Mac family of sandwiches, the Grand Mac and Mac Jr., along with the iconic Big Mac. This past weekend my husband and I had the chance to sit down and enjoy the new Big Mac Choices!

McDonald's Big Mac Family

McDonald’s Big Mac Family

Grand Mac is prepared with one-third pound (weight before cooking) of 100-percent beef and two slices of American cheese served on a larger, three-decker sesame seed bun with crisp lettuce, minced onions, and tangy pickles.


Mac Jr. is a single-decker Big Mac that’s easier to eat on the go. The Mac Jr. is not small; it offers all of the delicious taste of the Big Mac, with one 100-percent beef patty and without a middle bun.

Both are variations of the original Big Mac, which classically boasts two 100-percent beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, and onions on a sesame seed bun (But, only Big Mac has its own jingle).

I had the smaller Mac Jr. while my husband enjoyed the Grand Mac. I liked the small of the Mac Jr. The Mac Jr. is great for a smaller appetite. I especially liked that was less bread. You still get all the great Big Mac flavors just not so much! The Mac Jr. is also less messy, which is great if you ar traveling!

My husband said his Gand Mac was very filling and that it was good. He liked the bigger size, though he did note that it IS a messier sandwich. They do have a paper wrapper that holds the sandwich together, but with the bulk of the Grand Mac it does not help enough. He would order again because Big Macs and a little mess and are a good combination. big-mac-tasting-pics

McDonald’s and Change

I have shared before that McDonald’s is changing. Better Chicken McNuggets, healthier options, and they also released more all day breakfast choices. Along with the Big Mac Trio McDonald’s has upped their customer in restaurant experience.

Have you been inside of a McDonad’s recently? If you haven’t you should stop inside. McDonald’s is changing their counter service a lot. You order like normal and then they give you a table card. They get your drinks for you and deliver your food right to the table!big-mac-meal

Plus, they are serving their fries these cute little fry baskets! I love that McDonald’s is putting more service into their customer service. The employees were so friendly and served with a smile!
