McDonald’s Accepts Foreign Currency to Promote Worldwide Favorites Launch
The new Worldwide Favorites menu from McDonald’s will make its official U.S. debut on Wednesday, June 5. In order to promote the launch, on Thursday, June 6, McDonald’s is taking any amount of foreign currency in exchange for one of the new items.

Have an extra Euro laying around? Found a Japanese Yen in that old travel fanny pack? Wondering what to do with that Rupee from last summer’s trip to India? Start rummaging under those couch cushions, take that spare foreign currency you have, and head around the corner to your nearest participating McDonald’s on Thursday, June 6 between 2—5 p.m. local time, and exchange one piece of foreign currency for any one Worldwide Favorites menu item* at McDonald’s International Currency Exchange.
So far we’ve reviewed the Stroopwafel McFlurry (The Netherlands), the Grand McExtreme Bacon Burger (Spain), and the Tomato Mozzarella Chicken Sandwich from Canada. All that’s left to try are the Cheesy Bacon Fries from Australia, but we’ve had them in the U.S. before.
