Big Mac inventor, Michael “Jim” Delligatti, has gone to the Golden Arches in the sky. Passing away at the age of 98, he created the legendary burger for McDonald’s 50 years ago when wanting a larger option for his customers. The burger has not only been a flagship for the brand but has spawned an official Big Mac Shop selling its likeness on helmets, sleeping bags, raincoats and more.
The Big Mac Shop
What better way would there be to honor Mr. Delligatti than to wrap yourself in the warmth of a Big Mac Sleeping bag or to sport a Big Mac Ski Helmet when flying down the slopes?
The fast food chain’s online store sells an odd collection of Big Mac embellished products, now evolved from the initial launch of the Big Mac Lifestyle Collection. The signature burger, the Big Mac with two all-beef patties, “special sauce,” lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions on a sesame seed bun can be found on the following wearables and home goods.

Big Mac Board Shorts:
Big Mac Wellington Boots / Rain Boots / Galoshes:

Long Live The Big Mac and May Michael “Jim” Delligatti Rest In Peace.
