As the festive season only comes round once a year, the limited-edition snacks are often very popular.

We explain the key dates to put in your diary for Maccies’ Christmas menu 2021.

When does McDonald’s Christmas menu start?

McDonald’s hasn’t confirmed when it’s Christmas menu will launch this year.

Last year, seven festive Christmas items hit the menu on November 18.

Hungry diners had six weeks to bag the treats, like all of its limited edition items.

That meant the treats were taken off the menu on December 29, 2020.

We’ve asked McDonald’s for more details on when it will launch its Christmas menu and we will update this story when we know more.

What’s on McDonald’s Christmas menu?

McDonald’s hasn’t revealed what will be on its Christmas menu yet.

Last year, fans could treat themselves to seven festive items including a double Big Mac, Celebrations McFlurry and cheese melt dippers.

While 2019 saw the return of the Big Tasty – a beef burger, Emmental cheese, tomato, lettuce, onion and Big Tasty sauce – as well as camembert cheese bites.

The Big Tasty was also on 2018’s menu – but instead of a beef burger, a special chicken version of the popular favourite was launched.

How do I find my nearest McDonald’s?

If you’re planning on taking a trip to McDonald’s, you’ll want to know where your nearest branch is.

The chain has a restaurant locator tool on its website you can use to find your nearest one – and check what time it opens.

Bear in mind that McDonald’s serves breakfast every day from 6am onwards until 11am.

After that, the menu switches to the normal menu serving meals such as burgers, chicken nuggets and more.

Some fast food fans can get a McDonald’s Big Mac and fries for £1.99 every time – and it’s totally legit.

After temporarily running out earlier this year, McDonald’s favourite milkshakes are back on the menu too. 

We taste test the new McDonald’s McPlant burger – and it tastes just like a quarter pounder with cheese.
