Big macs, Quarterpounders, Chicken Nuggets, these are all familiar McDonald’s menu items to most people. In fact, you could argue that McDonald’s would not be quite the same without these items. But what if we were to tell you that there other items in other parts of the world that offer some unique and possibly delicious additions to the McDonald’s menu. Many of these items cater to the local culture and consequently can only be found in certain places, such as the prosperity burger and McPoutine. From black and white hamburgers to good ole’ spam, these are the 25 Deliciously Unique McDonald’s Food From Around The World.
It’s basically an inside out hamburger bun with ham and cheese
Veg Pizza McPuff (India)
Vegetable pizza never looked better….or puffier.
It’s not the most eclectic item on our list but it definitely looks tasty!
Taro Pie (China)
Just imagine a McDonald’s apple pie filled with taro-root instead of apples
Ovomaltine McFlurry (Brazil)
This flavor is also available in some European countries
McCurry Pan (India)
This isn’t just any old pan of curry. The pan is actually made of bread (think taco salad).

Mashed Potato Burger (China)
Want a manlier hamburger? Just add mashed potatoes! At least according to McDonalds, as this burger was featured in McDonald’s “Beef 2012 Manly Campaign” in China.
Bubblegum-Squash McFlurry (Australia)
As gross as it sounds, fear not, “squash” actually refers to marshmallows. It doesn’t sound too bad anymore does it?
Prosperity Burger (Malaysia)
Bearing a strong resemblance to the McRib the Prosperity Burger was originally introduced as a promotional item to “celebrate abundance” during Chinese New Year. Not surprisingly this burger sells pretty well.
Spinach and Parmesan Nuggets (Italy)
How do you make something healthier? Add spinach!
Breaded Emmentaler Sticks with Lingonberry Jam (Austria)
That’s just a really fancy way of saying cheese sticks with jam
For Americans this might be a bit strange
Seriously? As if McDonalds meat wasn’t already fake?
If you thought the mash potatoes were strange, try putting beef stew on your burger
Bacon Potato Pie (some Asian countries)
Bacon + Pie…why on Earth is this deliciousness only sold in Asia?
Filet-O Shrimp Burger (Japan)
Panko battered shrimp topped with Ebi shrimp tempura sauce on a bun is one of the most popular McDonald’s menu items in Japan.

It’s basically a chicken wrap with rice and it’s McDonald’s way of appealing to local tastes in China.
Rye Vegetarian Feast (Finland)
Apparently even McDonald’s is good for you in Scandinavia

Peasant Soup (Portugal)
A combination of ham, red beans, elbow pasta, veggies, and garlic makes this a decent quick meal.
Fries covered in cheese curds and gravy. You’ll only find this in Canada.
Apparently Australians really love their vegemite

We’re still not sure why the stick is necessary but hey, why not?
