Winter means a shift in the menu for many as we move from refreshing salads and outdoor barbecues to the comfort of soups and slow-cooked meals to warm us up in the cooler months. It’s also a time of change for McDonald’s which has launched its new winter menu in Australia.

The new menu features the return of some fan favourites as well as a few new items that will surely become fan favourites.

McDonald’s new winter menu for 2022

The new winter menu heralds the return of the ever-popular Mighty Angus burger.

If you’re unfamiliar with this McDonald’s favourite, it consists of two 100% Aussie Angus beef patties, cheese, bacon, red onion, chunky tomato relish and McChicken sauce in a soft gourmet bun.

The Mighty Angus is the perfect replacement for those missing the Aussie Angus from Macca’s summer menu.

In the snack department, McDonald’s will once again be selling Mozzarella sticks. These Mozzarella batons are breaded in a golden crust and fried, then served with a chunky tomato relish.

As for new items, we have a couple of desserts to munch on.

For the first time Macca’s is introducing a Crème Brulee Pie and Crème Brulee McFlurry to the menu.

The Crème Brulee Pie is a reinvention of Macca’s classic Apple Pie and fills crispy pastry with smooth creme custard and burn caramel filling. It’s served piping hot and is the perfect winter warmer.

On the chillier side, we have the Crème Brulee McFlurry, which pairs vanilla soft serve ice cream with a crispy pastry filled with custard and burn caramel filling. Plus there’s a drizzle of warm caramel topping to cap things off.

The new and returning items on McDonald’s winter menu will be available from July 6 in Macca’s restaurants nationwide. Get in quick though because once winter is over these items will disappear.

ICYMI Macca’s is also trialling the new McPlant burger in certain Aussie stores if that’s more your style.


    • Exactly what I’m wondering.

      Like, for how absolutely shit the whole Gamergate debacle was, the one good thing I remember coming out of it was promoting transparency when it came to paid advertisements. So where is the transparency here?

      • It’s because of people like you that we have labels like ‘Don’t use hairdryer in the shower’ or egg cartons that state ‘Product contains egg’.
        This is hardly a stealth advertisement, so maybe some common sense? I understand that’s a rare creature in this day and age.

        • ‘Don’t use hairdryer in the shower’ is there for safety & liability reasons.
          ‘Product contains egg’ is there for allergen reasons.
          Just because we were all able to identify this is an ad doesn’t excuse that it should be marked as such. It doesn’t matter if the points seem obvious. They are there as a standard because if you don’t enforce the rules even on the most obvious examples then it’s a slippery slope of abuse by marketing campaigns.

    • Are you new here? Snacktaku is a piece that has been running on lifehacker/kotaku for years. Coverings all take away companies, lollies, chips etc.

      • This is true, however McD is notoriously stingy with third party use of its brand, and this article is suspiciously free of actual opinions. McD obviously had some involvement, almost certainly including a right to review the text before publication, since they have supplied marketing images.

        Snacktaku from the US is normally a jokey and somewhat critical take on the interesting and unusual. Snacktaku normally involves actually eating the food. This article, on the other hand, is written locally and is more or less a straight description of the McD menu that may as well have been cut and pasted directly from a press release.
