McDonald's Just Announced a Stunning Change to Its Iconic French Fries (You Might Actually Like It)

麥當勞剛剛宣佈要給它標誌性的炸薯條進行一項驚人的改革(而你很可能會愛死它)


If there's one thing that most people I know like to eat at McDonald's, it's their iconic French fries. There's just something about them that makes them hard to beat. 

我認識的大部分人都喜歡吃麥當勞的一樣東西,那就是他們標誌性的炸薯條。不知道為什麼,這種食物就是會讓人慾罷不能。


However, McDonald's just announced an addition to its French fries options that the company thinks will make them even better. Bacon. And cheese.

而現在,麥當勞宣佈要給他們的炸薯條再加一點料,這家公司認為這樣會錦上添花。他們要加的就是培根和芝士。


According to a McDonald's announcement, beginning on January 30, McDonald's customers will be able to order Cheesy Bacon Fries. The idea is actually pretty simple: melt cheddar cheese sauce over hot fries, and then sprinkle on smoked bacon bits. But that's not all...

根據麥當勞的聲明,從1月30號開始,顧客們就可以點芝士培根薯條了。這個想法其實很簡單:熱烘烘的薯條上淋上融化的切達芝士,然後再撒上切碎的薰培根。但還不止這些……


The company will also introduce two new bacon-centric items to its menu: a Big Mac Bacon burger, and a Quarter Pounder Bacon burger. According to a McDonald's announcement, bacon is hot -- earning 17,000 mentions a day on U.S. online platforms -- and the company wants to get on board the trend. 

麥當勞還會推出兩款以培根為主原料的新品:培根巨無霸和培根至尊牛堡。根據麥當勞的說法,培根的人氣很高,它在美國的網絡社交平臺上每天能被提起17,000次,而麥當勞想要趕上這波風潮。


The company tested Cheesy Bacon Fries in Hawaii, Northern California and McDonald's Chicago global headquarters in 2018 before deciding to roll them out nationwide in 2019. According to the company, they were positively received in each market.

麥當勞之前已經於2018年在夏威夷、加州北部和他們位於芝加哥的總部試點了芝士培根薯條,之後才決定於2019年在全美國推廣。根據麥當勞自己的說法,他們在試點的每個市場都收穫了正面的反響。


I suspect, given America's infatuation with bacon, that the Big Mac Bacon burger and the Quarter Pounder Bacon burger will do just fine too. As the company says, "there's no such thing as too much bacon."

我覺得,考慮到美國人對培根的喜愛,之後的培根巨無霸和培根至尊牛堡也會賣得好的。就像這家公司自己說的:“培根這種東西是絕對不嫌多的。”


Like many of McDonald's recent food announcements, this one has an expiration date. While there is no specific date mentioned, the company says that Cheesy Bacon Fries and the bacon burgers will be available only for a limited time. So, if you're interested in checking out these new menu items, you'd better not wait too long.

就像麥當勞近來的很多新品一樣,這次的新品也是有時限的。雖然他們還沒有公佈具體的時間,但他們確實說芝士培根薯條和培根漢堡都是限時供應的。所以,如果你想試試這些新品,那可不要等太久哦。

n. 選項




option 的意思是“選項”。


其實這個詞在中學課本里出現得就挺早,但這裡還是要把它和 choice 區分一下。


說 choice 的時候一般是強調你最後選了什麼:


You've made your choice.

你已經做出了選擇。(該負責了)


而說 option 的時候一般是強調你有多個選項可選:


Our options are not that limited.

我們手頭上的選擇並不少。
