Sing songs of praise to the Golden Arches gods because McDonald’s announced this morning that the McGriddle—a sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich hugged by two syrupy pancakes—will be added to the all-day breakfast menu. No longer will you have to drag your hungover body to McDonald’s on Saturday morning before 10:30 a.m. No longer will you need to smite the rumblings in your stomach when that midnight McGriddle craving hits you. Luckily, you will soon be able to meander over whenever you feel like it to feast upon the beloved sweet and savory breakfast sandwich.
McDonald’s unveiled an all-day breakfast menu this past year—amid crowds and cheers from breakfast lovers—serving biscuit and McMuffin sandwiches to hungry hoards of McDonald’s enthusiasts who had been eagerly awaiting the day to eat McMuffins around the clock. McGriddles, however, remained on the pre-10:30 menu in this cruel, pancake-breakfast-sandwich-discriminating world we live in. But no more.
McDonald’s has emphasized that adding the McGriddle was a leading request from customers. The eminent fast food empire will roll out the improved menu nationally beginning in August, and internationally in September.
