Four International McDonald’s Items More Interesting than the Worldwide Favorites Menu
The Worldwide Favorites menu has reached the official national launch day. We reviewed the Stroopwafel McFlurry (The Netherlands) along with the Grand McExtreme Bacon Burger (Spain) and the Tomato Mozzarella Chicken Sandwich (Canada). I’m currently debating on whether or not to get the Cheesy Bacon Fries (Australia) because they’ve been on U.S. menus in the past.So far, the menu items I’ve tried have been average to pretty good, but nothing really too interesting. Here are four international McDonald’s items that are more interesting than the current Worldwide Favorites menu. Also included is their sometimes-funny Google translation into English:
The Ahoj-Brause McFlurry from McDonald’s Germany
“Now there is the completely crazy shower fun: the McFlurry Ahoj-shower strawberry with tingling Ahoj shower pearls in the classic flavors woodruff, raspberry, orange and lemon. Encased in white chocolate, the shower pearls come as a bubbly-sour taste explosion. Get the eternally young Prickel-fun!” – As Dubba would say, this one has “fun factor.” Fizzy candy in a McFlurry is something I could see happening at some point in the U.S.
Big Malt from McDonald’s Brazil
“2 burgers, bacon, beer mustard, crispy onion, lettuce and loaf special” – Looks very interesting. I almost picked the McFire from McDonald’s Brazil for the name alone. The Big Malt’s loaf special was hard to resist. Definitely doesn’t appear to be a good grubbing on the go pick.
Fillet ‘o Shrimp from McDonald’s Japan
“Renewed in 2018! Aurora source is a highly reliable product with excellent compatibility with Zakuzak shrimp cutlet that boasts the original texture and deep taste of shrimp.” I love this one on multiple levels. The name, the translation, and that it looks absolutely disgusting. Japan is far from uninteresting.
McRib Onion Rings from McDonald’s Guatemala
“Boneless pork rib bathed in a delicious barbecue sauce, gherkins and onion rings breaded in special bread.” Onion rings as a replacement to slivered onions on the McRib is an idea that needs to happen in the States. Those pickles have got to go though.
So that’s my list of international menu items from McDonald’s that are way more interesting than the safe picks on the Worldwide Favorites menu. What are four international McD’s menu items that would make your list? TravellingMcDs is a great source to check out… and his Instagram.
