McDiddy’s

Filed under: Uncategorized — mokjay @ 12:24 am

As American as we are, we always assume that Mcdonalds is the same from country to country. Every country possesses a big mac, or a big n tasty. I’ve been watching the food channel, and it amazed me that Mcdonalds catered to the country that it resided in. The “I’m lovin it” in various languages on the sides of the fast food bags really do reflect the amount of countries that McDonalds serve in.

In Japan, they have the teriyaki burger, and do not even have any of the normal sandwiches that we would expect to see on a mcdonalds menu. I Remember going there last summer, craving McDonalds, but not being satisfied because Mcdoubles were not present.

I recently watched a Food Network Program that featured some of Mcdonalds strangest reigonal foods.

In canada, there is a Mchomard, which is a lobster sandwich of sorts. Homard means lobster in French, so that is pretty fitting.
In Australia, there is a pasta zoo happy meal, which features animal shaped pasta and a sauce called “zoo goo”
 In Mexico,  there is a An English Muffin topped with refried beans, cheese, and salsa. It is aptly named the McMollettes.

the most ironic of all of these, however, is the Mega mac, which is twice as big as the big mac, but is not even sold in the states.

  1. WOW! That mega mac looks like it’s calling for heart attack or something. I don’t think any one can take a simple one bite of it without stretching their jaws out. Ridiculous.

  2. I’m not going to lie, that looks delicious. Yes, it is a little ridiculous but still I would eat it. Probably not the most healthy thing to eat though.

  3. I don’t know why, but it’s pretty fascinating learning about the regional McDonald’s foods. My cousin says there are curry pies in India, instead of apple pies, and that the Filet-O-Fish sandwiches in France have star-shaped patties. I remember seeing lemon pies being sold alongside apple pies somewhere near Washington, D.C.
