FANS are not too happy with Canada’s take on an Australian burger.

Fast food chain McDonald’s has introduced a new “Aussie BBQ and Egg” burger to its range, but people aren’t so impressed with the interpretation of what makes a burger Australian.

The burger was launched this month as part of the chain’s “World Taste Tour” promotion, but people were quick to notice that it lacked pretty much all the elements of a classic Australian burger.

There is no beetroot or pineapple — instead the burger is made up of 100 per cent Canadian beef, eggs, beet chips, processed cheese, lettuce and barbecue sauce.

Encouraging customers to “enjoy a taste of Australia”, social media users questioned McDonald’s about how the burger was “Aussie” but were met with the same response about the ingredients used to make it.

The chain’s Twitter post soon made it over to Reddit where users were quick to poke fun at the burger.

“It bears no resemblance to any burger I’ve ever seen in Australia. I’ve seen it here in Canada & don’t understand how Maccas came up with the name,” one person said.

So, the only Aussie (thing) about is the BBQ sauce?” another asked.

“If beetroot juice doesn’t drip from your elbows while eating, it’s not an Aussie burger.”

Another questioned the use of beetroot chips over the sliced version.

“While it is very Australian to put a fried egg on a burger,” the man wrote on Facebook, “a real Aussie burger has sliced fresh beets on it. McDonald’s Australia has an Aussie burger with sliced beets on it. Crispy beet chips just doesn’t cut it!”
