- Catherine Murphy bought mozzarella sticks from McDonald’s in Liverpool
- The 24-year-old had paid £1.59 for a three-pack of the limited edition snack
- Left disappointed after McDonald’s appeared to forget the namesake ingredient
A customer has hit out at McDonald’s after workers appeared to forget to add a vital ingredient in her meal.
Catherine Murphy treated herself to a meal from McDonald’s in Liverpool only to find her mozzarella dippers had no cheese inside them.
The 24-year-old paid £1.59 for a three-pack of the limited edition snack, which social media users have been getting excited about ahead of their hotly-anticipated arrival in stores this month.

Ms Murphy bought her McDonald’s meal from the Chaloner Street branch in Liverpool.
She said: ‘I was devastated. I was really looking forward to them because they’re my favourites and it was just hollow bread.’
The sticks were almost completed hollow, leaving Miss Murphy disappointed with her lunch.
This isn’t the first time McDonald’s have left customers underwhelmed with their hollow cheese bites.
Back in 2016 more McDonald’s lovers were left confused after buying mozzarella sticks with no filling.
Fans took to Twitter to share their outrage over the missing ingredient.
Where is the cheese: Many a lunchtime has been ruined for customers who have treated themselves to mozzarella dippers – with no filling
Courtney Wright said: ‘When you get mozzarella sticks but there is no cheese in them lunch ruined.’
Francesca Heavens said: ‘McDonald’s what is this?!? My mozzarella stick had no cheese! How is that even possible?? Where is the cheese.’
Amber said: ‘Craving mozzarella sticks. Excited that McDonalds has them! Just to get home to have hollow breading.’
The popular £1.59 sides are meant to be served hot with a side of ‘zesty tomato-based marinara sauce’.
McDonald’s said the Mozzarella Dippers and Salsa Dip have been back on the menu since February 7 but will only be around until March 20.
A spokesman added: ‘We would like to apologise to Ms Murphy for her experience. Every step is taken to avoid errors with our food and the restaurant was not made aware at the time. We would encourage her to contact customer services who will be able to look into this.
