McDonald’s to give away free buttermilk biscuit sandwiches tomorrow and Thursday
If you’ve still got the stomach to handle fast food after our last post, then this one’s for you. On February 9 and 10, participating McDonald’s restaurants will be giving away free buttermilk biscuit “sandwiches” during breakfast hours. The offer is limited to one sandwich per customer with a choice of sausage, egg and cheese; bacon, egg and cheese; or sausage only.
At 510 calories for the sausage, egg and cheese biscuit sandwich—more than a cheeseburger (300 calories) and slightly less than both the Big Mac and KFC’s double down (540 calories)—free may be the only way McDonald’s will be able to get people to try these new breakfast items, which a press release touts as an “historic milestone.” The strategy is well known to any good crack dealer: give people a free taste and soon they’ll be back.
McDonald’s began selling buttermilk biscuit sandwiches in Canada last Tuesday. Sure, they might make you stupider, but on the upside, they’ve led the chain to extend breakfast hours until 11 a.m., which would be great, if we could only remember how to get there.

Do you think about kids and adults alike that cannot afford ever to go out to breakfast or have these kinds of treats. How about the homeless, a hot breakfast! Kudos to Mcdonalds.
I lost my job in September, Christmas was not the same and my grandchildren were ok with that. Tomorrow I am going to take them to McDonalds for a treat I can not longer afford.
Now I know the reason that you gave me such terrible Christmas gifts. Don’t think for a minute you will win me back with a free sandwich, I’m not that stupid.
Yay!! Free fast food!
Wait… The only people McDonald’s are doing a favor are themselves. This is a word of mouth marketing technique. They don’t care about the homeless or anyone else.
A note to the author of this article. I thought that the foundation of a good article was objectivity in the content! This is nothing but anti McDonalds propaganda, when in fact all they are doing is giving away free stuff!! “Those Bastards!!”.. Sure the sandwich has 510 calories.. BFD!! It’s not like people don’t already know that…So chill out and let us all have our Free Mcdonalds Buttermilk Biscuit and eat it too!
P.S. These should be called McBB’s!!
o have tried the buttermilk biscuits
there pretty good
this sandwhich loooks fucking cream
510 calories for a single breakfast sandwich !!!! That’s almost 25% of your ENTIRE daily caloric intake. Is anyone surprised with today’s childhood obesity – or rates of diabetes? Just this sandwich alone has 83% of your entire daily cholestorol, 70% of your daily saturated fat and half of the daily reccomended salt…. IN THIS LITTLE SANDWICH.
Following the herd of people
Chowed down free biscuit
Blinded by my own gluttony
The reason grandma gave you crappy presents is because we know what you do under your covers after the lights go out.
Shame on you. Now go confess to a Catholic Priest.
Oh wait, bad idea for a little boy.
510 calories isnt that bad… just get off our lazy ass and exercise…
Grow up people.
It’s got 510 calories alright but if you want to try it go ahead. If you have it everyday then bad for your internals but okay once in a while. If you exercise not a prob.
I don’t like ham/pork so I won’t eat it.
But if you wanna try it, try it. It’s free!!!!
Micky D’s isn’t whipping you to eat it or come back for more.
it is easy to find a job, look all over the internet or learn a computer based program like photoshop/website design and earn money easily. You can download free programs off the internet and tutorials… You can easily search for jobs online as well. This “losing your job thing” is getting quite funny, no matter what you are qualified in. I’m still in high school and making 1000 (give or take) a week designing websites for companies with my friend who programs them. If a child can make money online, you can too : /
Regarding your “If a child can make money online” remark, actually, that is one of the biggest problems nowadays. There are plenty of jobs for people with lots of experience, who are heads of companies, and there are plenty of jobs for young people with no experience, who will usually work for minimum wage. People in between, with only a couple of years’ experience, are overlooked for jobs–they are too qualified for entry-level work because employers think that “they won’t stay; they’ll leave when they get a better job offer”, and they aren’t qualified enough for a management position.
I agree that, for some people, it is still easy to find a job. For many people, especially those not in the computer field, it is not.
Hey … I hear they are hiring at McDonald’s
510 calories?great! now i can get all the nutrition i need, and still feel like im starving myself!
I had one of these the other day (sausage and egg) and they were pretty darn good. It’s a lot of calories, but hey – just don’t eat them every day.
Who doesn’t know how to run computers these days?
I wonder what people would do if all fast food restaurants gave away free salad for a week.
come on its all in moderation, I would understand if you were going there every day!!! A free sandwich sounds good to me to treat my self .
From Winnipeg, Feb 10, 2011:
The McDonald’s restaurants we visited this morning told us that the free buttermilk biscuit sandwiches were not free unless we purchased a coffee.
In the fine print it says that promo only valid at parcipating McDonalds. I assume that the Mcdonalds you went to are cheap. The one in the atrium on bay are giving them away for free no purchase required. I have gone two days in a row and I feel disgusting, but there so so good. I can assure you I wont get them again though you can taste your artorys clogging. Also when there are huge massive line ups and I or anyone else for that matter tell’s you off for budding in line a notisable amount. YOU ARE AN ASS and be considerate! we are all waiting, dont pretend to talk a diffrent language like you dont understand, outs people in a bad mood. I just wanted to enjoymy fatning biscut. Ugh so annoying
Look, 510 calories is a lot but this sandwich should be a once and a while treat. I have tried one and they’re delicious, just don’t have it more that every 2 weeks.
Just had two of those biscuits. Wow, are they ever greasy! But damn good!
I will never have one again… and now I am off to the gym. I feel so fat.
OH come on everyone… get over it already! So what if McDonalds is giving away free breakfast sandwhiches… Any business would do the same thing to benefit sales (thats the whole point of a business) comparing McDonalds to a crack dealer though?? Grow up! Have you ever heard of a woman or man losing their kids, house or car cause they spent too much on McDonalds or “used” to much McDonalds? NO!!! If thats all you have to work with then thats pretty sad! And not to mention, those Buttermilk Bisquit sandwhiches look pretty damn tasty! Cant wait to try one! And being a Low income single parent, I’ll take a free McDonalds sandwhich any day :) Thanks Mickey D’s!!!
510 calories, yes, but it’s fricken huuge! I thought it’d be the size of the Tim Horton’s biscuit, but it’s actually much bigger.
There *should* be a free salad day. They might actually go through enough lettuce for it not to be rotting by the time you get it!
If there food is so good why are they giving it away for free?
Seems stupid to me, I would fire the executive who came up with that idea, how are customers ever going to want to pay for food/coffee that was considered good enough to give away for free?
Way to McDonalds!
Wonder if the article would have been the same if it was tim giving out breakfast sandwiches.. 530 calories in their buttermilk sausage breakfast sandwich.
anti mcD bullshit
