TOKYO -- McDonald's Holdings (Japan) will soon debut a smaller version of its iconic Big Mac sandwich here for a limited time, hoping to attract customers with a smaller appetite.
The Big Mac Jr. will sell for 290 yen (around $2.60) and have just one beef patty and two buns -- down from 390 yen, two patties and three buns for the regular Big Mac. The product had previously been offered in the U.S. and Europe.
McDonald's will also temporarily bring back the Grand Big Mac for 490 yen as well as the very biggest Mac -- the four-patty Giga Big Mac -- for 700 yen. All three sandwiches will be available from Wednesday to mid-May.
