      Where else can we buy gourmet Maccas buns? You'll be paying heaps more for the burgers with the already used buns.

      •  

        Their gourmet because Maccas calls them that?

        Those burgers will also have meat and other ingredients too…

        •  

          So where else can we buy Maccas buns? It's pointless seeing the burger as a better deal. What if I want to make my own burgers? Do I scrap everything off the burger I've already paid a heap for?

        Fun fact. They had to cut down on the sugar levels, otherwise they'd be classed as confectionery. The KFC buns are far more sweeter.

    •  

      Came here to say this

    •  

      It's because more people are eating at home and their suppliers have contracts to supply x amount per month. With no one sitting in the cafe in store or dining in, they have heaps of buns and milk that they're contracted to buy but they're not selling and won't survive months. Meanwhile the supermarkets are running out of milk because everyone's making their coffee at home.

    Have anyone actually found a store that have the buns or milk in stock? I tried the Melbourne CBD McDonald and all of them said those items are not available.

    •  

      My local store hasn't got buns, milk or english muffins - the whole lot is unavailable. Perth suburbs.

        Boo hoo hoo. If a store is out of stock and you can't get your hands on them doesn't mean they haven't thought it through. It just means that business is good and it sold more than anticipated.

    $1.30 a litre for milk is great, I’d gladly pay the 10c/l premium in order to not get out of the car and avoid people.

    They might have some contracts to buy certain quantities of Muffin buns each day, along with certain quantities of milk.

      This is it, their sales will be way down with dining rooms closed and they have stock they're getting in that will go off if not sold.

    They just use Tip Top Muffins… pick them up in Coles or Woolies (when on sale they are 2 packs for $5 or something).
    If you like the sausage mcmuffins, just buy the chevaps sausages and shape them into patties before cooking.
    The cheese is American/Old English… only place you can buy that is in Costco. It's the same cheese in any of the Macca's breakfast menu, and also Subway.

    If you want the egg to look exactly the same, you can buy metal egg rings from any supermarket.

    But it all together and you have a ready supply of Macca's McMuffins in any breakfast configuration you like… for MUCH cheaper.

      Don't forget to season the sausage with the salt/pepper mix.

        • +2 votes

          Sounds like you are a current/past employee. I worked at Maccas 20 years ago in the kitchen… weirdly, I have very fond memories of working there and still remember the processes and preparation. Although it looks like it has all changed there as they make it all to order now… the burgers were always best when the meat came straight off the grill and onto the cheese to melt it. Now they precook the meat and leave it in a warmer… the cheeseburgers have never been the same since.

          • +1 vote

            @BreezyPalms: Not a past employee, just a very regular breakfast customer ;).
            100% agree with everything you said though!

      Do the chevaps sausages actually taste like the sausage patties at mcdonalds?

      • -2 votes

        no none of what he listed does.

        • +7 votes

          Haters gunna hate… but what I've said is as close as you're going to get to the real thing. The chevaps aren't exact, but they have that same peppery spiciness flavour. For instance, I can tell when they use cheeseburger patties as fill in to the breakfast sausage because they've run out. It's a different mix of spices. Cheeseburger patty is more like a normal beef sausage. Breakfast sausage patty is more like chevaps… more peppery/spicy.
          It's actually very close!

          But hey, least I've tried.
          ubcool might have a better solution than mine though. He's obviously gone and tried my suggestions and nothing I've listed is good enough for his taste buds.
          Lets all hold our breath with anticipation on his awesome suggestions.
          I'm sure he'll be super helpful and offer educated insight into his opinion on what combinations of product are better and where to buy them.

            @UFO: I cant talk for the chevaps taste but keen to try it now!… As a past employee of maccas everything else you say is correct as far as I know. Muffins where supplied by Tip Top.

            The sausage patty was different to the Cheeseburger/Bigmac meat which they call 10 to 1 (1/10th pound weight). Sausage patty slightly thicker and smaller diameter, came in a different box to the 10:1 patties and was seasoned with a peeper/salt mix just before coming off the grill

    Here's what I can gather.
    1. Each store can set their own pricing for the new menu, that's why it varies.
    2. Stores get automatically allocated the buns from the supplier, and will have to manually order extra milk. It seems like it is a big hassle to deal with milk.
    3. From what I can tell, it isn't a deal to be an "essential" service, its to help the suppliers who may have less customers, and doing a lower turnover. As well as providing customers with a greater choice, and greater convenience. Where else can you be given a 2L bottle of Full Cream milk without having to leave your car?

      From what I can tell, it isn't a deal to be an "essential" service, its to help the suppliers who may have less customers

      Why would the suppliers have less customers? People who used to eat their bowl of cereal and drink coffee at work are still going to be doing the same thing at home. Those people are still likely to buy bread and rolls to make sangas at home instead of spending $15 at a nearby cafe to their offices.

      There's not less people, we're all just in different places now.

        ha exactly. no where where you could buy milk and bread before has been closed.
