It's been here since January but you didn't know about it.

McDonalds Corp (MCD) has been serving the BIG MAC for over 50 years. In January the company made a change nationwide that made the classic hamburger even more inticing.  Less calories.  How? They shrunk it down to a smaller size. Hello the MAC JR.

Here is the data you care about if you are going for that BIG MAC taste but not as many calories.
