I love a McDonald’s breakfast, and it turns out I’m not the only one.
McDonald’s sells around 82 million McMuffins each year in Australia.
How do we know this? Because the McDonald’s folks just put out a release boasting about how much produce they buy from Australian farmers and producers each year, and that list included 82 million eggs.
Many ingredients map to multiple categories. Potatoes are used for fries and hash browns. Milk goes into coffees and shakes.
But eggs only show up in McMuffins. (OK, they also feature in the Big Brekkie Burger, but we can all agree that’s a McMuffin on steroids.)
That’s an average of 224,657 McMuffins each and every day.
If you’re curious, here’s the full list of McPurchases. (Figures are for calendar 2022, Australian suppliers only.)
