McDonald’s annoys burger lovers with ‘cruel’ April Fools’ Day prank 7

McDonald’s has left some fans disappointed with its April Fools’ Day prank, but others are just glad it wasn’t true.

The fast-chain claimed it was getting ready to release a new burger – The McPickle.

The company’s Australian social media accounts posted a short video of the new burger, a Big Mac style but with piles of gherkins instead of meat.

The caption read: “Pickle lovers, it’s the news you’ve all been waiting for.

“We’re super stoked to announce the launch of our brand new McPickle Burger.

“It’s time to tuck into juicy, flavoursome pickles layered between melted cheese, ketchup sauce and toasted sesame seed buns.

“It’s sure to be a treat for all your senses.”

Fans were really excited about the new burger and couldn’t wait to try it.

One wrote: “I’m going to order 1000.”

Another added: “I cannot wait to get one.”

McDonald’s later commented: “Available until yesterday” and people started to clock something wasn’t quite right.

One wrote: “Oh s*** it’s April 1st…”

Another commented: “Omfg if this is april fools joke imma be mad.”

A fan added: “Cruel this isn’t real.”

Others demanded McDonald’s actually add it to their menu, with one writing “Make it real” and another adding “I really wish this wasn’t an April Fool’s joke”.

But other non-gherkin lovers were glad to learn it wasn’t real.

One man wrote: “I’m glad this is April fool because I threw up a little when I saw it at first.

Another commented: “Even though this is fake it’s still disgusting.”

Seeing all the disappointment, one man suggested an alternative.

He wrote: “If you really really want one just buy a cheeseburger and ask for a billion extra pickles.”
