There’s only one way to celebrate National Cheeseburger Day and McDonald’s knows how.
Foodies with a penchant for cheeseburgers can grab a Double Cheeseburger from Mickey D’s at less than half its usual price.
The cheeseburger is obviously a classic fast food dish and the Double Cheeseburger gives you twice the amount of deliciousness.
The fast food chain announced glorious news on Thursday (14 September) in a statement which is quite literally music to our ears (and stomachs).
But if you’re planning to take advantage of the splendid cheeseburger promotion, you’ll have to be ready for the 18th as it’s only lasting for one day.
“For one day only, fans can snag a Double Cheeseburger for only $0.50 from any participating location nationwide when they order exclusively through the McDonald’s App.
The offer is limited to one per customer at participating McDonald’s restaurants plus you’ll have to register on the app.
You’re not gonna want to miss this!
The announcement from the Golden Arches has gone down a treat with fans, with some on social media referencing the hilarious unintentional double meaning of the promotion.
In case you didn’t notice, it may sound like McDonald’s is offering 50 Cent - the ‘In Da Club’ Double Cheeseburgers.
“But what if 50 Cent isn’t hungry? He might not even like cheeseburgers,” one fan quizzed on Instagram.
“I thought this meant this as well bahahahahahaa,” another person confessed in response to the comment above.
“50 Cent can afford to buy his own cheeseburger,” a third fan commented.
“50 Cent can just buy his own??” someone else joked.
While another commenter added: “So they giving 50 cent some free burgers ? I’m sure he can afford better lol.”
“How does @50cent feel about this?” someone quizzed.
The cheeseburger news comes after the fast food chain confirmed this week that it plans to remove its self-serve soda machines across all of its locations in the U.S. by 2032.
In an email to The Associated Press on Tuesday (12 September), McDonald’s USA said the goal of the change is to create consistency for customers and crew members across its offerings - from those who eat in to online delivery and drive-thru customers.
It’s not unusual for diners to refill their cups without additional trips to the cashier.
It is unclear if any financial or hygiene reasons have impacted the decision.
