Macca's Or Hungry Jacks To Hop Into Roo Burger?

It looks like the public is only a hop, skip and jump away from sinking their teeth into Kangaroo burgers.

Fresh off Grill’d launching their version of the Roo burger, online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au reckons Macca’s will be the first major chain to jump into the new craze.

Macca’s is the $1.20 favourite to flip Roo burgers first, with Hungry Jacks the $4.00 outsider.

“We’re not sure the Aussie public will even hop into Kangaroo burgers so it wouldn’t surprise us if they didn’t bounce onto menu’s at all,” sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes said.

“Macca’s does look the most likely to give it a try. If they do and it takes off, Hungry Jacks might roo-the decision not to try it themselves.”

With McDonalds tipped to get onto the front paw and beat Hungry Jacks to the grill, McRoo is the $2.20 favourite for the name they’ll go with for the Kanga burger.

Kangamac is next at $3.00, with other contenders including McSkip ($19), Big Skip ($21), Skippy Mac ($34), McJump ($41) and McHop ($51).
