The Kiwiburger is a hamburger sold at McDonald's restaurants in New Zealand. It consists of a four-ounce (113 g) beef patty, griddle egg, beetroot, tomato, lettuce, cheese, onions, mustard, and ketchup on a toasted bun.
The Kiwi burger is a type of burger totally unique to New Zealand, it consists of your normal beef burger ingredients but with the addition beetroot, pineapple and eggs but no kiwi, It is just like the Aussie burger ! Somehow is not quite unique and creative.
The Kiwiburger was the idea of franchisee Bryan Old, who came up with the burger as a nostalgic take on the typical New Zealand hamburger prior to the introduction of McDonald's to the New Zealand market in 1976. Trialled initially in Old's five Hamilton restaurants, it was added to the national menu in 1991.
The KiwiBurger was reintroduced to McDonald's New Zealand menu in May 2007.
The burger was reintroduced on 17 August 2011 as part of McDonald's promotional Kiwi Menu, introduced ahead of the Rugby World Cup.
