McDonald's Makes Big Changes to Popular Menu Items!

McDonald's is removing high-fructose corn syrup from its hamburger buns and replacing it with sucrose.

The new buns will roll out next month at restaurants nationwide, affecting items across the menu including Big Macs, Quarter Pounders, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, McChicken sandwiches, and Filet-O-Fish sandwiches.

"We're following the customer," said Marion Gross, McDonald's supply chain senior vice president. "We know that they don't feel good about high-fructose corn syrup...so we moved to a sweetener that customers feel good about."

The change is one of several menu tweaks that McDonald's executives announced at the company headquarters Monday in Oak Brook, Illinois.
