When you head to McDonald’s, you probably order something classic. Perhaps a Big Mac or a Quarter Pounder. Maybe fries or an order of chicken nuggets, and possibly a Coke.
Even though we know McDonald’s isn’t a healthy meal, we all like to indulge in our favorite comfort foods every once in a while. And it’s not just Americans who head to McDonald’s for a familiar meal. Plenty of other countries frequent the chain, too. But the menu items that are familiar to McDonald’s patrons in other countries would look completely unfamiliar to golden arches fans in the United States.
Read on to check out the craziest things you can order from McDonald’s around the world.
1. Blue cheese and bacon burger
Le sandwich Signature by McDonald's™ Blue Cheese & Bacon : il va marquer de son empreinte votre restaurant McDonald’s 😋
In France, McDonald’s offers a blue cheese and bacon burger. And it turns out that McDonald’s actually serves these burgers with a fork and a knife — just like the other offerings on the “Signature” burger menu.
The recyclable plastic cutlery doesn’t sound like that big of a deal. But when the burger first appeared on the menu, its steep $15 price tag elicited complaints from customers. French patrons were also surprised by the choice to give forks to only one set of patrons.
