Whether you’re just a little hungry or starving, McDonald’s will soon offer a Big Mac to match.

The fast-food chain will release two new versions of the iconic burger Wednesday: the Little Mac and the Double Big Mac.

The Little Mac has just one beef patty, while the Double Big Mac has four. They’ll both still be topped with cheese, lettuce, pickles, onions and Special Sauce.

The Double Big Mac comes in at 720 calories; the Little Mac is 320 calories — the same as a medium fry.

Though the burgers’ prices will vary regionally, McDonald’s is recommending a price of $2.29 for the Little Mac and $5.49 for the Double Big Mac, McDonald’s spokeswoman Morgan O’Marra said.

Both burgers will be available for a limited time at select locations. McDonald’s did not say whether the new burgers would eventually be phased into the menu.

“The Big Mac is more than a burger — over the past 50 years it has become an international icon and a consistent favorite for our fans,” Linda VanGosen, vice president of menu innovation, said in a news release.
