The McDonald’s bacon roll has been voted the best on the high street by independent recommendation site Checkatrade.
In a panel of expert tradespeople, including decorators, electricians and plumbers, the site found that the McDonald’s bacon role was the best – with nine out of ten people putting it top based on its appearance, flavour and price.
The roll came top after six high street bacon rolls were tested against each other. The McDonald’s roll beat the likes of Greggs and Costa Coffee.
Duncan Cruttenden, Food Development Director at McDonald’s UK&I, said: ‘The bacon roll is the breakfast of choice for millions and I am delighted to launch our new and improved version to customers across the UK and Ireland.
‘The Checkatrade feedback speaks for itself, and whether you’re a ketchup or brown sauce person, I hope our customers agree that this Bacon Roll is a great addition to our breakfast menu.’
Mike Fairman, CEO of Checkatrade, commented: ‘Our trades have to go through a rigorous process to be listed on our site, making them trustworthy, reliable and recommended judges of character.
‘We knew when McDonald’s asked us to be part of this test, that our tradespeople would be the perfect people to give the seal of approval.
‘The panel had the long but enviable task of putting each roll through its paces with the McDonald’s Bacon roll getting a big thumbs up from our tradesmen and women.’
And Andrea Giammaria of RTEQ Ltd, added: ‘I was really surprised to see the McDonald’s bacon roll came out on top.
‘I usually head to the local café but I actually preferred the taste and texture of the McDonald’s roll in the test – the buns are really soft too which is why it scored so highly on the day – I know where I’ll be going in the mornings from now on!’
The McDonald’s roll has recently been ravamped. It is soon to feature three rashers of bacon in a sourdough-style bun, and comes with either brown sauce or ketchup.
The new product will launch on the 26th June and will cost £2.79.
