McDonalds is introducing a new breakfast item and we want it right now

McDonald's clearly doesn't go by the 'if it's not broken...' motto.

Which is totally fine when they come up with pure innovation like this: 

mcgriddle

That, friends, is the Chicken McGriddle.

The fast-food giant ruffled feathers this week by discontinuing their Big Breakfast in the UK.

There was even a petition to force them to put it back on the menu - which was rejected because the government currently has bigger things on their plate, and it's not their responsibility. At all. 

Is this the real Brexit?  

Maybe there was a good reason. Maybe it was to make room for this beautiful tragedy?

The Chicken McGriddle is the brainchild of employee Brian Mortellaro who pitched the idea to the McBosses. Made up of chicken and pancake, the sandwich (in the loosest of terms) contains 410 calories and 16 grams of fat and is influenced by the taste of chicken and waffles. 

It's currently on trial at 11 restaurants until 27 March in the US and if McDonald's decides it is a success it will roll out worldwide, costing around £1.50 in the UK.

We won't lie, we think it will make getting to Maccy D's within breakfast hours on a hangover very much worth it.
