McDonald's gives customers a blast from the past with 25-cent burgers and shakes

Fast food is already known for being a less pricey dining option, but McDonald's is taking things a step further.

The fast food chain launched a new promotion this week, slashing prices on fan-favorite menu items to match their original menu prices. The “throwback” Thursday deal offers items such as cheeseburger, fries and shakes for $0.25, reports Fox News.

For a limited time, McDonald's will offer menu items for less than a dollar every Thursday in a tribute to the chain’s “early menu pricing.” The deal is only valid when ordering through the McDonald’s app, and when customers spend more than $1 on other items.

“We know offering our customers a safe, fast and easy way to enjoy their favorite menu items for good value is more important than ever before," said a McDonald’s spokesperson.

According to their website, certain items will have their prices cut every Thursday, including; a cheeseburger on Jan. 21, a small shake on Jan. 28 and an apple pie for $0.20 on Feb. 4.

The following week the chain will offer up large fries for $0.35, before ending the promotion with another $0.25 cheeseburger day.

With these prices, McDonald's is looking to start another fast food war.
