    McDonald’s is testing the addition of an entirely new breakfast menu.

    The world’s largest hamburger chain said a test started this week for a new “Simple Delights Menu,” featuring things like breakfast bowls and Chobani Greek Yogurt.

    The tests are being done at about 800 restaurants in Los Angeles and San Diego.

    The new menu features “balanced options” for customers as the chain continues to move forward with its revitalization efforts.

    Among the options are things like fruit and maple oatmeal, apple slices, cuties and the newly introduced breakfast bowls and yogurt options.

    The two new breakfast bowls are expected to be sold during regular business hours for $4.39. Options include an Egg White and Turkey Sausage Breakfast Bowl and a Scrambled Egg and Chorizo Breakfast Bowl.

    The Southern California locations will also feature a new Fruit N’ Yogurt Parfait as well as McCafe Fruit Smoothies, which will also include Chobani Greek Yogurt.

    McDonald's is riding high from its biggest quarterly U.S. sales jump in nearly four years. The Oak Brook, Illinois company said in January that sales rose 5.7 percent in the last three months of 2015, boosted by its all-day breakfast menu and unseasonably warm weather.

    Last month, McDonald’s pushed its operation limits by adding new items to its all-day breakfast lineup, though the turnaround push is far from over. The company's U.S. customer visits fell 3 percent last year, following a 4.1 percent drop in 2014.
