McDonald's has announced that it will add mozzarella sticks to its menu nationwide in 2016.
The announcement was made on Tuesday during an investors' meeting in New York City, according to Business Insider.
McDonald's first tested the mozzarella sticks in a state known for cheese -- Wisconsin. The mozzarella sticks, which were added to the Lovin' Value Menu, were a hit and on Nov. 6, it was announced via Twitter that they would be coming to the New York tristate area.

The response to the news on social media has been overwhelmingly enthusiastic.
I can't be the only one excited about @McDonalds adding mozzarella sticks to their menu.

McDonald's is offering $1 mozzarella sticks that's a game changer to me even though I've worked there and swore I'd never eat there again

You can get mozzarella sticks instead of fries at McDonald's here. What a time to be alive.

McDonald's will charge $1 for three mozzarella sticks and a side of marinara sauce. It has not been announced when they will begin being sold nationwide.
Mozzarella sticks aren't the only new menu item that McDonald's has been testing. The fast-food giant began testing sweet potato fries in Texas in October.

McDonald's, along with other fast-food chains, have been dealing with declining revenue for the last couple of years. Most recently, they introduced all-day breakfast in an effort to compete with restaurants that already offered eggs and sausage around the clock.
