McDonalds Japan has announced that they will be releasing three new, one-day-only, “Quarter Pounder Jewelery” burgers Saturdays in July. So-called because of their luxurious nature and rare ingredients, the burgers will be available at participating locations across the country. Japan only, obviously. They will be priced at 1000yen (about CDN$10.50), a very high price for a McDonalds burger, but likely set to drive home just how luxurious these jewelery burgers really are.
The burgers are as follows:
Gold Ring (July 6th)
Quarter Pounder with special German sausage meat, Monterey Jack cheese, thick cut smokey bacon, and a slice of pinapple and barbeque sauce. Served on a kaiser bun.
Black Diamond (July 13th)
Quarter Pounder with Emmental cheese, grilled onions, grilled mushrooms, and a black truffle sauce, served in a brioche.
Ruby Spark (July 20th)
Quarter Pounder with pepper jack cheese, spicy guacamole, jalapeno, grilled onions, and spicy chorizo on a special french bun.
In case you were wondering, I am utterly sad I do not get to try these burgers. 10 bucks is steep for a McD’s burger, but the average burger in Japan is about that price anyway, as soon as you move away from fast food franchises.
Here’s the commercial for the first burger, the gold ring.
