Catch of the Day: McDonald’s Korea launches Shrimp Burgers

In response to customer feedback, McDonald’s Korea released two new shrimp burgers for a limited time on November 13.
The Spicy Shrimp Burger features a shrimp patty with hot and spicy sauce, and savory cheese. The Lemon Shrimp Burger boasts great flavors from the shrimp, and is served with flavorful lemon sauce, and fresh tomatoes.
“Our customers have enjoyed fresh and diverse ingredients on our menu and shrimp burgers have been a popular choice,” said McDonald’s Marketing Vice President Melanie Joh.  “We offered the Deluxe Shrimp Burger on our menu in October and sold 1 million burgers within 10 days.  “We’re listening to our customers and will continue to evolve our menu to meet their tastes and preferences.”
Both burgers will be available until December 25.
