As for Hot Cakes, for were just $1.65 also - a far cry from the $4.45 you’d pay now. While a Hash Brown would only set you back 60 cents, way less than the $1.90 you need to fork out in 2019.
‘Compare the prices of the egg McMuffin and Sausage and egg McMuffin … can’t believe I was paying those prices back then,’ one Facebook user commented.
Many social media users were also left wishing McDonald’s would bring back the Big Breakfast - which cost just $2.75 for sausage, scrambled eggs, hash browns and a toasted muffin.
Said one: ‘The big breakfast was the best should never have been removed from the menu.’ Added another: ‘About a month ago I went into McDonald’s and asked about the Big breakfast and the girl just looked at me with a blank look on her face. She had no idea why I was talking about and had never heard of it. Made me feel really old lol.’
