Grabbing some steaming hot McD's breakfast past the current 10:30 am cutoff won't be as simple as we assumed. A close look at the initial press release from the fast food chain clears up some major confusion about the new menu change that's set to take place on Oct. 6.
As reported by E! Online, the release reads, "Depending on the local market, All Day Breakfast will have a limited menu that focuses on either McMuffin or Biscuit items. This decision is made at the local level based on customer preference."
Basically, customers must choose between the McMuffin or Biscuit, oatmeal, yogurt, sausage burritos and pancakes. If not, they'll have to wait for the next day to indulge in any other breakfast menu items.
So, what happened, McDonald's? Did we not pass the all-day breakfast menu test you issued earlier this year? This entire idea stems from customers agreeing that the option to order breakfast outside of morning hours would be as mouthwatering as a fresh Egg McMuffin. In fact, USA Today reported that the all-day breakfast idea received a huge social media boost by way of 120,000 requests on Twitter sent to McDonald's.
Considering that the chain boasts over a billion served, perhaps that explains their reluctance to fully spread the all-day breakfast love. It absolutely pains us to say goodbye to the thought of those hazy, hash brown afternoons, but we hope they reconsider.
