The Egg McMuffin Turns 50!

McDonald's celebrated by selling them for 63 cents.

The egg McMuffin turns 50 this year and McDonald’s is celebrating by offering them for their original price of just 63 cents. You have to order through their app to get the deal though…so, it’s also an attempt to boost their rewards program. If you just show up and order one, you’ll pay the normal price, around three bucks. The breakfast item was invented by a franchise owner in Santa Barbara, California named Herb Peterson in 1971 and it wasn’t available nationwide until 1975.
