While all of McDonald’s classic menu items – like the Big Mac, the Cheeseburger and the Soft Serve – are iconic, sometimes we really miss the limited edition items that once graced the Maccas’ menu.

For instance, the El Maco burger was extremely delicious and so, when it was taken off the menu after its limited run, many (including us) were seriously upset.

However, it is with great pleasure that we can announce, due to popular demand, McDonald’s has decided to bring back the El Maco burger this summer!

Tim Kenward, Marketing Director for McDonald’s Australia, shared the exciting news with New Idea and said:

“We love that our customers are so excited about summer at Macca’s! [And] the early rumours are true. We’re bringing back the fan favourite, the El Maco and a deliciously exciting new Cadbury Caramilk Hokey Pokey McFlurry.”

“At Macca’s, we believe great combinations make summer special and we have a few more surprises in store, so stay tuned,” Tim continued.

At this stage, we don’t know the exact date the El Maco (or the Cadbury Caramilk Hokey Pokey McFlurry) will be available at Australian McDonald’s restaurants; but we’ll let you know as soon as it’s announced!

We also don’t know how long the El Maco burger will be available for; it will most likely only be available for a limited time but here’s hoping it’s added to the McDonald’s menu permanently…
