What it is: All the Big Mac ingredients you know, rolled and pressed by the sandwich preparer into a compact ball.
How to order: Ask for a Big Mac, but say you want it “balled up.” Your server will know what to do, and pretty soon, you’ll be chowing down on one of these.
What it is: An irresistible twist on a classic. A McChicken is crammed into the shape of a ball to make this yummy creation.
How to order: Make sure they understand you’d like your McChicken “balled up.” Or, you can order a normal McChicken and “ball it up” yourself.
What it is: You’ve never had your salad like this before. “Balled up” style means taking a big dish and squeezing it into the smallest space possible.
How to order: Don’t be timid! Just say you’d like a Premium Bacon Ranch Salad, then say, “And put that in a ball for me,” or, “I’ll take it in a ball.” It’s no surprise the “balled up” version of this salad is supposedly even more popular than the original.
What it is: One juicy hamburger, golden french fries, apple slices or Go-Gurt, and a toy—mashed together into a hearty 600-calorie wad.
How to order: “Give me a Hamburger Happy Meal, and don’t forget to ball it up.”
What it is: Everything you love about the secret menu in one tasty ball.
How to order: Make the above orders in succession, then say, “All that? Let’s ball that all right up. I’ll take it balled up.”
