McDonald’s brings back monstrous Grand and Giga Big Macs to celebrate New Year

The end of 2020 has seen some interesting fast food releases in Japan, including fried chicken sushi, as well as a Whopper that wards off evil from Burger King. McDonald's is also getting in on the seasonal release fun, bringing back their two behemoth mutations of the Big Mac--the Grand Big Mac and the Giga Big Mac for a limited time to kick off the New Year.

The return of the two heavy duty Big Macs are part of McDonald's Japan's "Big Smile Campaign", which sees the standard Big Mac combo set reduced from 690 yen to 550 yen. Those with a bigger appetite can challenge the Grand Big Mac and Giga Big Mac, which will be available from Jan 6 to Jan 19.

Grand Big Mac

The Grand Big Mac features beef patties 1.3 times larger than usual Big Mac patties, and an especially large bun.

Giga Big Mac

The Giga Big Mac, which is available in limited quantity, is roughly 2.8 times the size of the original Big Mac, featuring four patties and larger-than-usual sesame bun.

Customers can also enter a lottery by following the McDonald's Japan Twitter account and tweeting out a comment with #ビッグマックでBIGSMILE attached for a chance to win a gift card, as well as checking lottery seals attached to fry packages.

Like a Big Mac every now and then but no fries and no coke. I prefer mine with beer.

Cut it into little bits, have a chunk everyday. They tend not to spoil too soon.

Speaking of which, I had a big mac yesterday with the kids and was on the pot all afternoon. Doesn't agree with me.

I feel sick if I get the slightest whiff of a McDonalds. It certainly doesn't smell like food.

I remember when Big Macs actually tasted good.

Corporate bean counters can ruin anything.

Shooooot, I’m gettin’ mine tomorrow and I always tell the staff to whip up a fresh batch of fries to go with it, none of that old crap sitting under the hot lamp, fresh out of the fryer, take it home, throw some kimchi on it, now you got a serious meal.

You should see what happens to your body when you eat meat or even fish. Either way, live your live and be happy, because you have one, eat and do whatever makes you happy.

Yes, you only have one life so why not make the most of it? And food should be fun and tasty. And don't forget McDonald's Filet O' Fish sandwiches. I love all their burgers yet when it comes to fish sandwiches theirs are the BEST.

Supersize, I'm loving it, eat em up, yum! Yeeeeeeeaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
