Australia: McDonald’s had a second prank for April Fools’ Day — the new McPickle sandwich. The Australian McDonald’s page shared an image of the new sandwich, which was basically a Big Mac but with pickles.

"Pickle lovers, it’s the news you’ve all been waiting for. We’re super stoked to announce the launch of our brand new McPickle Burger. It’s time to tuck into juicy, flavoursome pickles layered between melted cheese, ketchup sauce and toasted sesame seed buns. It’s sure to be a treat for all your senses."

Social media praised the idea.

According to Delish.com, you can get the McPickle … sort of. Just order a Big Mac without sauce, onions or beef and add extra pickles.
