McDonald's is set to unveil its latest menu this week (May 29), just in time to welcome the summer vibes.

Hungry patrons will soon have the chance to indulge in a slew of new treats, including the debut of the Skittles McFlurry (£2.19) and The Hat Trick burger (£5.89/ £7.69), which boasts a trio of beef patties, cheese, grilled onions, mustard, and ketchup, all nestled within a sesame seed bun.

Returning classics such as the Chicken Sharebox (£10.59), nine-piece Chicken Selects Sharebox (£8.49), and Mozzarella Bites (£2.39) are making a comeback on the menu, alongside sweet delights like the Galaxy Caramel McFlurry (£2.19) and the Galaxy Chocolate and Raspberry Pie (£1.99). However, the departure of one iconic item is causing quite the stir among Brits.

The much-loved Sour Cream and Chive dip is being phased out, available only while stocks last, and is set to be replaced by a new Garlic Mayo dip. Additionally, McDonald's barbecue dip is getting an upgrade to a new Sweet and Smokey barbecue sauce.

While news of the fresh additions has excited many fans, there's been a collective mourning for the ultimate favourite: Sour Cream and Chive dip. Disgruntled voices took to Instagram, with one user exclaiming: "Replacing the sour cream and chive dip? ! No that's the best dip."

Another chimed in, saying: "[You] can't have Chicken Select without sour cream." A third voiced their dismay: "Why the f**k are they replacing sour cream and chive? ? I'll never order selects again." While another simply lamented: "NOOOOOO! ! Not the sour cream."

McDonald's frequently alters its menu based on the time of year, which means several fan favourites will be removed in the upcoming days. This includes the much-loved Biscoff McFlurry, Chicken Big Mac, and Biscoff Frappe.

However, it's not all bad news, as the popular Iced Latte (£2.49) is set to make a comeback as a permanent fixture. The fast food giant describes the drink as 'perfect for when you want to cool down in the summer heat', and it's sure to become a morning essential for commuters.
