If you’re residing in the Cleveland area of Ohio, you will be able to try a new item from the McDonald’s menu: mac and cheese. The fast-food chain is trying to experiment with a roll-out of this dish, offering it in only 18 restaurants from the area, according to Fox 2 Now.
The area has served as a test market since this summer, offering clients various foods, in order to see how they will perceive them.
“We’re always looking for new ways to offer relevant tastes to our customers, so we’re giving mac and cheese a try and gathering valuable feedback from our customers,” said Lisa McComb, McDonald’s spokeswoman.
Currently, the mac and cheese is available just with Happy Meal menus, for $3, and it’s considered an entree, alongside fries, fruit and milk. The portion has four ounces and less than 200 calories, five grams of protein and five grams of whole grains, as stated by the company.
Besides this, clients who wanted a separate portion of mac and cheese are able to buy it for $1.75, since November. It will be served until February, but the company might continue selling this, if it turns out to be a success.
“We’ll then use the feedback from our customers to see what happens after that,” Lisa McComb said. “It’s premature to draw any conclusions from this test and it wouldn’t be appropriate to speculate on it being offered anywhere else.”
Back in October, McDonald’s also offered an all-day breakfast, while in the UK, the fast-food retailer started selling a made to order, premium burger.
