McDonald’s to AXE ‘best’ dips for good in weeks as part of major menu change (2024)

MCDONALD's recently announced it was making a major change to its menu in the coming weeks.

On May 29, eight new items will be making their way onto menus but fans are not happy that two classic dips will soon be gone for good.



The fast food chain confirmed a new Selects dip trio is coming to menus with two others leaving for good.

Chicken Selects can now be served with a new and improved Garlic Mayo and Sweet and Smoky BBQ, as well as the much-loved Sweet Chilli.

This means fans will need to say goodbye to the Sour cream and Chive dip as well as the standard BBQ dip.

Fans have taken to social media to express their frustration at hearing the news.

One Facebook user remained: “Why you lot getting rid of the sour cream and chive dip! That's the best sauce!”

“Getting rid of the sour cream and chives dip?” asked someone else.

A third user protested “They’re replacing bbq dips!”

But its not all bad news as the menu update revealed that for the first time, McDonald’s is collaborating with Skittles to create a new Skittles McFlurry.

McDonald's biggest burger make-over in decades

Fans have taken to social media to share their excitement for the new McFlurry.

One Facebook user said: “I’ve been a skittle fan for years”

“I don’t know if Skittles makes my teeth hurt or if this is a brilliant idea.”

"What is happening Skittles McFlurry is like my dream," said a third user.

However, it seems none of the eight new items coming to menus has satisfied many other fans who are calling for the return of a popular classic.

Many fans have protested that the fast food chain should bring back the Chicken Legend.

All flavours of the popular burger were axed, including cool mayo, BBQ and hot and spicy mayo back in October 2022.

One user said: “They need to bring back the chicken legend.”

“Bring back the chicken legend,” cried someone else.

"McDonald's needs to hurry up and bring back the chicken legend," someone said.
