McDonald's Japan trials Big Mac Bacon to celebrate Big Mac's 50th year

Japanese celebrities joined the taste test to decide whether the new variant is worthy of the Big Mac name.

Previously tested in Canada, the Big Mac Bacon features the usual McDonald's burger, with the addition of two strips of bacon on the top. The chain is also testing out the Big Mac BLT with slices of tomato.

The brand has listed four celebrity judges to offer their take on the burger. Amongst them is voice actress Ayana Taketatsu (Azusa in K-ON! and Leafa in Sword Art Online), who approved the addition and said it makes the Big Mac even more delicious.

Also offering their opinions are actress and model Miwako Kakei, actress Hinako Sano, and comedian Dandy Sakano.
