McDonald’s Is Adding New “Worldwide Favorites” Menu Items In The U.S.

April 22, 2019

Are you planning a trip to Spain just to check out the exclusive McDonald’s Grand McExtreme Bacon Burger? Yeah, no. We totally aren’t either. We do have a flight to Spain booked, but we’re going to see… um… the other stuff Spain has besides the Grand McExtreme Bacon Burger. But if, by chance, you were doing the former — cancel your reservations. McDonald’s is bringing the Grand McExtreme stateside, along with three other “World Favorites.”

According to Business Insider, McDonald’s plans to give their American customers a taste of their international selections. Come June, McDonald’s will add the Grand McExtreme Bacon Burger from Spain, the Stroopwafel McFlurry from the Netherlands, the tomato-mozzarella chicken sandwich from Canada, and the cheesy bacon fries from Australia to American menus.

Now, this news is pretty top-secret. Business Insider got the info from an insider, and when pressed, a McDonald’s spokesperson replied, “Geen commentaar.” That means “no comment” in Dutch. Cheeky, McDonald’s. Very cheeky.

Even though we don’t have solid evidence that this is actually happening, we’re pretty confident that it is. In 2018, the fast food giant tested the Grand McExtreme and the Stroopwafel McFlurry in 50 locations in South Florida. They also tested the BBQ McShaker Fries from Malaysia, and McSpicy Chicken from Hong Kong, both of which are seemingly on the back burner for now.

These four new “Worldwide Favorites” are definitely making up for the fact that McDonald’s is removing its “Signature Crafted” line from the menu.

The Grand McExtreme is a heavenly fresh beef Quarter Pounder patty topped with McBacon sauce, bacon, Gouda cheese, and slivered onions. The Stroopwafel McFlurry contains vanilla soft serve, caramel waffle cookies (stroopwafels), and caramel sauce.

The tomato-mozzarella chicken sandwich from Canada is pretty self-explanatory, and comes with onions, lettuce, tomato, mozzarella, and a tomato-herb sauce.

And hello? Cheesy bacon fries? Say no more.

Okay. Well, we’re more than ready to try out these four new McDonald’s creations.

So, bring them on, Mickey D’s. And hey — make sure all your soft serve machines are in working order.

Just check out how BEAUTIFUL this looks! We’re ready.

We don’t want to look a gift horse in the mouth, but tbh, other countries get the best stuff at McDonald’s. For example, McDonald’s Australia released a Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry.

McDonald’s Australia also serves up a Big Brekkie Burger that looks utterly fantastic. It’s basically a beefed-up sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich complete with a hash brown, special sauce, and slice of ham.

They even have a burger with Tasmanian Brie melted on top. Are you kidding? Are you?!

McDonald’s Netherlands has sweet potato fries, btw. Bet you didn’t know that. Bet they’re freaking amazing.

They also serve up a crispy shrimp meal. McDonald’s Netherlands is doing the most.

McDonald’s Spain just got an official Instagram account. However, with things on their menu like the Grand McExtreme Bacon Burger, they’re miles ahead of us.

And duh. McDonald’s Canada obviously has poutine.

We know, we know. Fast food poutine can’t be as great as the real deal, right? We honestly don’t know. Just look at how incredible this looks:

Can poutine be the next thing we get on the Worldwide Favorites menu? Please? PLEASE?

Keep an eye on your local McDonald’s menu come June. You might just see some foreign things pop into view — and you’re going to want to try them all.
