Ah, McDonald’s. We all love their crispy, piping hot fries and burgers. It is definitely everybody’s guilty pleasure, and we are not afraid to admit it.
What is the most interesting about McDonald’s is how their menus differ all over the world. Each country has an item unique to that country’s culture or food preferences that you might not be able to find elsewhere. In Singapore, we have our beloved McSpicy.
Other countries boast some of the wackiest menu items. Visiting a country’s McDonald’s overseas and seeing what they have is always an interesting experience. Here Are Some Of The Craziest McDonald’s Items Around The World.
