All our dreams came true when McDonald’s revealed that it was re-opening for takeaways, delivery and drive-thru orders. But there was one thing still bumming us out. Actually, two things: the length of the queue at the drive-thru and the lack of breakfast items on the menu.
We totally get it – McDonald’s is currently only offering a limited menu in order to ensure its staff isn’t overwhelmed and can practice soil distancing effectively. But boy do we miss Egg McMuffins. These homemade ones are pretty damn tasty, but it's just not quite the same.
Earlier this month, McDonald’s revealed plans to get breakfast items back on the menu sooner rather than later; on 24 June in fact! But only in some restaurants, so don't get your hopes up fully just yet.
From 24th June, a number of restaurants will test the return of breakfast service. If successful, we hope to reintroduce the much-missed McMuffin across the UK and Ireland later in July. We will confirm which restaurants nearer the time.— McDonald's UK (@McDonaldsUK) June 9, 2020
And now we've been informed which items will and will NOT be on the limited menu when it returns this week.
In an email to customers, chief executive officer for McDonald's UK and Ireland, Paul Pomroy, said: "As with our main menu, we will have a limited menu at breakfast but we’ve kept the classics – hash browns, McMuffins and pancakes all return.
"Unfortunately, whilst adhering to social distancing guidelines, we are unable to serve porridge, bagels and our Breakfast Wrap.
As a reminder, here’s our limited menu, no breakfast or Shakes for now but don’t worry, we do have McNuggets. pic.twitter.com/qPoMie8FH6— McDonald's UK (@McDonaldsUK) June 4, 2020
Sad news about the wrap and bagels. But surely no one's going to miss the porridge too much, right?
