I think McDonald’s Angus Third Pounder burgers are the best McDonald’s has ever put out, and I’ve made sweet mouthlove with several of them since they were introduced in 2009. But I have to admit that I’m tired of the three Angus Third Pounder varieties. So I’m glad to hear a fourth is being released — the Chipotle Angus Third Pounder.
The newest member of the Angus Third Pounder line will not only come in sandwich form, but also in the not as good Snack Wrap form. They will consist of 100 percent Angus beef with a smoky, sweet chipotle barbeque sauce, red onions, pickles, bacon and American cheese in between either a toasted sesame bun or flour tortilla.
Nutritional info isn’t officially available, but using the nutritional info from other McDonald’s products and some McMath, I estimate the Chipotle Angus Third Pounder will contain 775 calories, 38 grams of fat, 17 grams of saturated fat, 1.5 grams of trans fat, 145 milligrams of cholesterol, 1940 milligrams of sodium, 61 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of fiber, 13 grams of sugar, and 44 grams of protein.
The Chipotle Angus Third Pounder and its Snack Wrap cousin be available starting February 1, but only for a limited time. Although, if popular enough they may become permanent menu items or come back every other year like the McRib.
