Would you like a side of fries with that McGangBang?: Secret, off-the-menu sandwich at McDonalds

Obviously not an item on the fast food chain's regular menu, the McGangBang is one of the specialty items, "much like the off-the-menu items at In-N-Out," reports Eat Me Daily, only familiar to those McDonalds employees and customers who are in the know.


"The legend of the McGangBang goes back to 2006, when it first appeared in an Urban Dictionary entry that described a chicken sandwich between two full burgers being served at a McDonald's in Daytona Beach," writes The Consumerist. Eat Me Daily did some extensive research and came up with this detailed account of the infamous sandwich over the years, even finding mentions of it on various online message boards and videos on YouTube of people successfully ordering it.


Now that this sandwich has been proven to be very real and the word about it has spread, I wonder if McDonalds restaurants will be receiving more requests for it. Heck, McDonalds should just put it on the menu (changing the name, of course). It could be their answer to KFC's calorie-laden Double Down.


Do you know of any other secret, off-the-menu items in this underground network of junk food creations? Let me know in the comments section below.

Unfortunately (or fortunately, however you choose to look at it), the bite-sized McDonalds McRibbles, which took the online world by storm a few weeks ago, turned out to be a big McHoax. Now there's another creation from the big golden arches taking center stage, once thought to have been no more than an urban legend, that's been proven to be very real: the McGangBang sandwich.

The McGangBang is is made up of two popular Dollar Menu items combined into one: a McChicken sandwich stuffed between the patties of a double cheeseburger. Pretty economical, if you ask me, being that the sandwich comes out to only $2.16 — cheaper than many of the other sandwiches on the menu.
