Posted at 10:27 AM, Jan 24, 2019

For one hour on Tuesday, customers can bring home the bacon for free from McDonald’s.

The nation’s largest fast-food restaurant is hosting a free bacon bash from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Jan. 29 to celebrate the arrival of pork on three menu classics.

“When we said there’s no such thing as too much bacon, we weren’t kidding,” McDonald’s manager of culinary innovation Michael Haracz said in a statement. “January 29, we’ll be upping the bacon ante – the bac-ante, if you will – and celebrating this glorious food favorite like never before.”

During the hour, customers will be able to get a free side of thick-cut Applewood smoked bacon with any purchase, ranging from Big Macs and Filet-of-Fish to a hot fudge sundae or a sweet tea.

Haracz plans to be among the first partaking in this freebie.

“I love bacon. America loves bacon,” Haracz said in the statement. “I really can’t wait to see the crazy and daring combinations our customers put together.”

A limit of one free side of bacon, which is two half pieces of bacon, per person with any order. Prices when bacon is rolled on McDonald’s menus will vary by location.

The following day, McDonald’s will roll out a Big Mac Bacon burger, the Quarter Pounder Bacon burger and Cheesy Bacon Fries to its lineup for a limited time.

The two iconic sandwiches will include three pieces of bacon when they are bought by customers, beginning on Wednesday.
