We’re finally dipping into the holidays, and food news is getting pretty hype.

This week was full of exciting food news stories, and you guys provided some fantastic comments, per usual.

This week McDonald’s announced it’s testing a Sriracha Big Mac, Matt Stonie chugged a giant pumpkin spice latte, and Taco Bell opened a sick 24-hour cantina in Vegas.

You guys responded to those stories through Facebook, and now it’s our turn to respond back.

We always appreciate that you read our posts, and take the time to add your own commentary.

Here’s what made the cut this week. Think you can make next week’s list?

STORY:Watch Pro Eater Matt Stonie Drink The World’s Largest Pumpkin Spice Latte

That sounds like a pretty decent estimate. I think consuming large amounts of food like this, combined with scrolling through Instagram, and maybe even catching up on Black Mirror on Netflix, will cause you to spend a good amount of time in the restroom, but “No Ragrets” right?

Nothing says romance like dollar tacos and boozy slushies in Vegas. Taco Bell’s out here helping relationships thrive.

I, too love them thick. There’s something about a curvy burrito that gets juices flowing and makes me feel some type of way.

Story: McDonald’s Is Testing A Spicy New Sriracha Big Mac

Mmhmm, mmhmm. Or you can not waste all that time creating the sauce yourself and just order the Sriracha Big Mac.

That’s the spirit. Everyone’s seems to be hating on the egg yolk for this video, but we think it’s beautfiul. Just accept the calories.

Fast Food What's New

McDonald’s Is Testing A Spicy New Sriracha Big Mac

The Sriracha trend has died down quite a bit over the last couple years, but apparently McDonald’s is still going to hold on to it, albeit kind of late, with their testing of a Sriracha Big Mac.

The new burger still has the essence of the standard Big Mac, with a sriracha-infused modification to their Mac Sauce, according to Nation’s Restaurant News.

While the testing is only being done in central Ohio, it will reach 128 McDonald’s locations, through the end of 2016.

“Offering the addition of Sriracha to our Big Mac Special Sauce was a fun way for our culinary innovations team to think outside the box and continue to answer the call of our customers who are always looking for the next great innovation in food experience and taste,” Scott Nickell, Central Ohio Co-op president, said in a statement.

The new spicy Big Mac announcement comes a week after the fast food joint got people hyped over their two new Big Mac sizes, so if the testing goes well, we might soon see a Sriracha Mac Jr. and Sriracha Grand Mac as well.

McDonald’s also flirted with signature Sriracha burgers in Southern California and Seattle back in July, calling the spicy Big Mac-based sauce “Awesome Sauce.”

You can’t really fault McDonald’s for jumping onto the Sriracha bandwagon. Although the popular hot sauce was at its peak a few years ago, the overall sales of hot sauce have grown by 150 percent since 2000.

Hopefully this leads to wide release and we can all give it a shot, and dunk our fries into their Sriracha Mac Sauce.
