To accompany its new signature crafted recipes, McDonald's will now offer zesty 'Pico Guacamole.' Made with Haas avocados, Roma tomatoes, onion, lime flavoring and cilantro, McDonald's guacamole is long over due. Guacamole will be included on a couple of the restaurant's new beef and chicken burgers. The Pico Guacamole Buttermilk Crispy Chicken Sandwich comes with guacamole, lettuce, white cheddar, a crispy buttermilk chicken, and buttermilk ranch sauce -- all on either an artisan roll or sesame seed bun.
Avocados have held an important role in Millennial food culture for quite some time now. Due to the lower growing cost of Avocados and an affinity for Californian lifestyle, many consumers have became drawn to the single-seeded berry, which also offers health benefits.
The addition of guacamole to McDonald's Signature Craft Recipes menu signals the cultural importance of the delicious dip.
