(Newser) – More change at McDonald's: The chain has made a big change to how it cooks items, including McMuffins and biscuits, ditching liquid margarine for real butter, reports CNBC. Sources say the change is happening at restaurants nationwide once they exhaust their supplies of liquid margarine, and signs are being posted saying the chain is "proud to cook breakfast items on the grill with real butter," which should also warn the lactose-intolerant. Meanwhile, McDonald's has rejected Burger King's offer to team up and make a McWhopper for a day, but Denny's has offered to team up for a "Slopper," and slider specialist Krystal says it's up for making a "Kropper," Fortune reports. (A few weeks ago, McDonald's quietly made its burgers beefier.)
