How many times have you gone to McDonald’s and overheard a bizarre order while you’re in line? Maybe you’ve heard of the (filthily-named) McGangbang or the Land, Sea and Air Burger, both “custom” orders invented by loyal McD’s customers.
If not, you’ll be pleased to know the McGangbang is a McChicken inside a McDouble, and a Land, Sea and Air Burger is an unholy combination of a Bic Mac, a Filet-o-Fish and a McChicken. Is your mouth watering yet?
Both of these creations — and many, many more — are available, and it turns out they’ve always been available at the Golden Arches. In a recent Reddit AMA with a UK-based McDonald’s manager, it was revealed that customers can indeed order “secret” menu items, though the items aren’t exactly “secret.”
The Loop reached out to McDonald’s Canada, and Michelle Yao, Communications Manager of Ontario Region McDonald’s, confirmed that there is no “secret menu” per se, “but we know our customers are really creative and they tell us all the time that they enjoy customizing our menu.”
So what does that mean for you, loyal McFan? ENDLESS OPTIONS. Just ask for whatever your heart desires when you’re placing your order: extra ingredients, things stuffed in other things, or multiple combos stacked. The only limit is the boundary of your imagination. Oh, and cost, since most of the special orders involve tweaking the meal. Just clarify when you order what the price difference will be.
Here’s a selection of already-thought-of delectables you can potentially order on your next journey to McDonald’s.

Land, Sea and Air BurgerWe've already revealed the inner workings of this masterpiece, but seeing it in the flesh (shudder) takes it to a whole other level.Hack the Menu
Monster MacYour mission, if you and your arteries choose to accept it, is this beast. It's a Bic Mac with eight patties (and an optional eight slices of cheese).Hack the Menu
Pie McFlurryTwo delicious desserts combined, this is a mix of McD's' apple pie and a regular McFlurry (whatever flavour you want).Hack the Menu
Mc10:35This concoction is named for its availability: you can only get it between 10:30 and 11:00 a.m. This Egg McMuffin with McDouble burger patties probably tastes even better with the challenge involved.Hack the Menu
McGangbangHere it is, the trifecta of McDonald's cuisine. Looks surprisingly compact and edible, doesn't it?Hack the Menu
McKinley MacEver feel like those Big Mac patties are too skinny and non-satisfying? Up the game with Quarter Pounder patties.Hack the Menu
Root Beer FloatAdd vanilla ice cream to one of your favourite pops -- in this case, root beer. It also works with Coke. Either way, your teeth are going to be burning.Hack the Menu
Poor Man's Big MacThis is basically a McDouble with Big Mac sauce, for those of us who want all the meat and less of the bun.Hack the Menu
Grilled CheeseJust order a cheeseburger minus the patty (and everything else), and there you have it. Cheese on a bun.Hack the Menu
Neapolitan ShakeApparently one of McDonald's most popular under-the-table orders, the shake combines strawberry, chocolate and vanilla in a wonderful melange.Hack the Menu
