Has the Big Mac® changed since it was first introduced?

May 21, 2018

In short, very little. While there's been no significant change in The Big Mac® over the last 50 years, we have made some small tweaks to improve the nutritional content.

The Big Mac® contains two beef patties, Big Mac® sauce, lettuce, onions, dill pickles and a processed cheddar cheese slice on a three-tiered sesame seed bun. This was the same in 1990 and it's the same now. Well, if it ain't broke...

You can find a full ingredient declaration for all food served in the U.K. (including the Big Mac®) by visiting our online nutritional calculator tool here or downloading our Allergen Booklet here.
