McDonald’s, the nation’s fast-food giant is offering a multi-person boxed meal in the Kansas City market — the first time it has sold such a meal in the United States.
The Blitz Box, which includes two Quarter Pounders with cheese, two medium fries and 10 Chicken McNuggets with dipping sauces, sells for $14.99.
In total, the combo, which is meant to feed more than one person, serves up 1.75 pounds of food totaling 2,370 calories, 120 grams of fat (34 grams of it saturated) and 4,580 milligrams of sodium.
The promotion that began Sept. 2, is scheduled to run through the entire football season, says Lisa McComb, a McDonald’s spokeswoman. If it’s a hit, it could expand nationwide.
In addition to the Blitz Box, McDonald’s is also in the process of rolling out a steak option on its breakfast sandwiches and its gearing up for a big fall push of its chicken wings.
And to make it all easier to buy, the company is reportedly testing a mobile payment app at its Salt Lake City and Austin, Texas, stores.
