McDonald’s not too long ago touted enhancements to their Hamburger, Cheeseburger, Double Cheeseburger, McDouble, and Huge Mac choices. The rollout of the modifications is ongoing and set to be accomplished subsequent yr however have already arrived right here within the Los Angeles space so I went to see what’s totally different by buying a Double Cheeseburger.

The Double Cheeseburger prices $3.19 close to me (however there was a buy-one-get-one-free deal on it within the app). It consists of two grilled beef patties, two slices of American cheese, onion, pickles, ketchup, and mustard on a toasted bun.

The brand new modifications embody “completely melted cheese,” a “softer pillowy bun,” and “juicier, caramelized taste from including white onions to the patties whereas they’re nonetheless on the grill.” They’re additionally cooking the burger patties in barely smaller batches so that they are usually more energizing and warmer with a greater sear.

At first look, the bun now has a sheen to it reasonably than the earlier matte end. In texture, it appeared to have simply barely much less of a spring to it and depresses a bit simpler. It was nonetheless sturdy sufficient however was softer and extra moist.

I usually have not had points with the cheese being melted at McDonald’s nevertheless it was properly melted right here.

The onions seemed to be the identical reconstituted dehydrated ones as earlier than (which implies you are unlikely to get any of that uncooked onion chunk). Being thrown on the flattop grill gave them just a bit bit extra colour however the mildly candy taste tasted the identical to me. Spending time on the grill would possibly assist them hold the burger only a contact hotter in transit.
