Avocado toast was once the most Instagramable breakfast for food bloggers, hip cafe frequenters and avant-garde eaters everywhere -- but now it's gone mainstream with this McDonald's avocado sandwich.
Now on the breakfast menu at McDonald's Japan, the avocado sandwich boasts a thick, creamy layer of avocado chunks on top of a generous slice of ham and serving of lettuce. It's all topped with spicy Cobb sauce and sandwiched between two English muffins. McDonald's Japan has previously featured other variations of the avocado sandwich, including avocado-topped hamburgers and avocado shrimp patties.
This McDonald's avocado sandwich is a great example of a fashionable super-food being incorporated into a fast food restaurant's menu, allowing it to appeal to a broader range of consumers. This is especially enticing to millennial youth, who are quick to jump on specific food movements.
