If you go to McDonalds and order off the dollar menu you may notice a strange burger called the McDouble. I know what you are thinking, and yes the double cheese burger was formerly on the dollar menu. Now it appears slightly above said dollar menu as a regular ole sandwich that costs a whopping $1.19. What is the difference between these two burgers besides a sizable 20 cents? Today I got to the bottom of the mystery, I had an idea as to what the answer would be, and I'm said to say my inkling was correct.
The McDouble is constructed from bottom to top of bun, beef pattie, slice of cheese, beef pattie, two pickle slices, mustard, ketchup and diced onion capped off with a regular bun.
The more robust Double Cheeseburger consisted of bun, beef pattie, slice of cheese, beef pattie, a second slice of cheese, two pickle slices, mustard, ketchup and diced onions capped off with a regular bun.
That's correct the only difference between a Double Cheeseburger and a McDouble is a slice of cheese. 20 cents for a slice of cheese! Ridiculous.
