McDonald’s Is Literally Having A Free Bacon Happy Hour Soon
Mark the calendar for Tuesday, January, 29th, because that's the day that your local McDonald's will be giving out free bacon from 4 pm to 5 pm.
I saw the news about this in an article by the Trentonian, the official Bacon Hour will allow customers to get two slices of Applewood smoked bacon with anything on the menu, at no additional cost. It's literally a bacon lover's happy hour. You can add a side of bacon to whatever you want during the 60-minute window.
My favorite quote about this is from McDonald’s Manager of Culinary Innovation, Chef Michael Haracz, who said that McDonald's is "upping the bacon ante—the bac-ante." He's also curious to see what "crazy and daring combinations" some people create with the bacon.
I can see adding bacon to fries to make them like loaded fries, and as a topping to a burger. Yet some combos in the video above don't sound as appetizing to me. The idea of adding bacon to a fish sandwich, apple-pie, or a McFlurry... not my idea of a good time. But have fun and enjoy the Bacon Hour and your meal however you want. I'm sure we may be seeing these combos on social media soon.
