It was introduced in 1997, but was discontinued until 2008. It is one of the cheapest products sold by the company.


The burger contains 390 calories, 23g, 7% of fiber and 20% of daily calcium.

The price of the burger depends on their size and at the company, with the price sometimes ranging to $2.99 it is also the cheapest way to buy a burger similar to the Big Mac, and was also referred to as a lifehack, as the burger is half the size of a Big Mac.


The burger was introduced in 1997, and was being advertised with "Eddie the Echo", at which point the McDouble did not have cheese yet and was garnished with lettuce and tomatoes.

The bacon McDouble was introduced and costs $2. This sandwich was also added to the U.S. "Dollar Menu & More" in November 2013.
