The Golden Arches


In an effort to get a few more people through its golden arches, McDonald's is making a few changes.

The fast food giant is testing out a grand mac and a mac junior to accompany its staple item the big mac. In comparison the grand mac has a third of a pound more beef, an extra slice of cheese and a larger bun, the mac junior is a single patty burger designed to be eaten on the go.
