We were excited when we found out McDonald’s was bringing back its dollar menu. The beloved discounted menu was discontinued in 2013, but it is making a triumphant return to the golden arches starting on January 4, 2018, according to Reuters. And now, we have a sneak peak on what this new menu will offer.
Instead of everything being a dollar, some items will be at the $1, $2, and $3 level, and will replace its current McPick 2 value menu. This new menu is set to compete with other fast food restaurants, such as Taco Bell, which has about 20 items on its $1 value menu, and Subway, which sells some 6-inch subs for $2.99 each.
What Can You Order?
So what will be on the new dollar menu? Any size soft drink and cheeseburgers will sell for $1, $2 will get you small McCafe drinks and bacon McDoubles, and Happy Meals and triple cheeseburgers will sell for $3.
If you’re looking to save money and cut calories in the new year, opt for a cheeseburger. They are a steal at just a dollar each, and an Eat This-approved option—one cheeseburger is just 300 calories, 12 grams of fat (5 grams saturated fat, 0.5 grams trans fat), 680 mg sodium, 33 g carbs (2 g fiber, 7 g sugar), and 15 g protein. Just be sure to stick to one burger and skip the side of fries.
