McDonald's Might Be Changing Its Chicken Sandwich

Certain McDonald's locations are testing the Grand McChicken sandwich.

Though McDonald's just released its own version of a chicken sandwich to compete in the ever-growing Chicken Sandwich Wars not too long ago, the Golden Arches might be preparing to change things up. As some eagle-eyed McDonald's customers have noticed, select locations of the fast-food joint are now testing the Grand McChicken sandwich, one of the biggest changes to the McChicken in recent memory.

According to the super sleuths at ChewBoom, the Grand McChicken has a much larger chicken patty than what's typically available on the regular McChicken. The sandwich is then topped with mayonnaise and lettuce before being sandwiched on a toasted bun. As of now, the test sandwich is only available at four locations in California (Bakersfield, Chico, Fresno, and Sacramento) in addition to Reno, Nevada.

What other new items does McDonald's have?

Earlier this month, the chain announced a tie-in with the second season of Loki, releasing a specially labeled Sweet 'N Sour sauce for the show.

"This character had been on a decades-long, maybe centuries-long revenge mission, and the classic trope of those stories is that it's all-consuming and she's not thinking about what comes next. Now she has this moment of opportunity, where is she going to go?" Loki producer Kevin Wright previously told Fast Company of Sylvie before explaining how McDonald's fits in with the story they're telling. "When we stayed in the view of character, this woman who went on the run as a child, had been running through time, a fugitive of time, living in apocalypses, never being able to relax or slow down, the novelty of walking into a 1980s McDonald's looked appealing. You play a Little League game and go to McDonald's. You go to a kid's birthday party at McDonald's. Someone like Sylvie would never have experienced that, and would be really taken by that."

"I was worried that McDonald's would think we wanted to do something ironic or make fun of them. But we were selling an earnest story, a love letter to nostalgia through a character's eyes who will see all of the novelty and joy of it, the Loki producer added.
