Admit it, we all enjoy unhealthy food a lot more than we should. The first time I went to McDonald’s, I thought I’d died and gone to Heaven. I spent the majority of my youth in this blissful illusion until things like taxes and responsibilities dragged me out of the clouds. Yet the smell of a good McDonald’s burger (which has no real meat in it, so it’s 100% vegetarian) rekindles the fire of youth that once burned ever so brightly in my embarrassingly narrow chest.
The one thing I’ve never quite managed to do, however, is change my McDonald’s routine. I’m a Big Mac guy and I’m not afraid to admit it. Turns out they have more than just the Big Mac though. I know, I know, it’s pretty much a given at this point that they don’t need to have more food than the best cheap and unhealthy burger in the world, but they do it because they care. About profits, not about you.
Turns out McDonald’s restaurants (“restaurants”) have different kinds of food depending on the country you’re in, so it might be worth your while to take a look inside and try eating one of these things instead of your trusty ol’ Big Mac.
McLobster – Canada
Nowhere else in the world can fast food pretend to be as fancy as it can in Canada.
Croque McDo – France
This is just a burger variation of the traditional croque monsieur. If you don’t know what that is, you haven’t been eating amazing things. Cause it’s an amazingly delicious hot grilled ham and cheese sandwich.
McSpaghetti – Philippines
Apparently the only thing the people from the Philippines thought was missing from McDonald’s was spaghetti. It’s weird, but I’ll allow it.
French Fries With Chocolate – Japan
I’m Belgian, so the mere concept of throwing chocolate on top of fries is pretty much the equivalent of taking a dump on my heritage. But apparently the Japanese are fond of that kind of thing.
