McDonals UK usually have lots of promotions named after US States or Countries, there is a difference, and they don't use as much additives, however the difference isn't vast like it is in terms of McDonalds in India, Japan and elsewhere in the Far East.
Yes that was where I got that reference. Of course there was the Big Kauna Burger. Which of course was not a real burger.

I saw your McDonald's UK menu and the burgers named after states. I don't know who came up with the states and the burgers named after them I would come up with a different list.

Food at McDonalds seems about the same to me in other countries, at least for the burgers I'm usually eating if I go in another country. Sure there are usually a few different menu items that reflect local tastes, but there are also menu items in the United States that aren't offered in other countries.

Two things often missing from menus overseas are breakfast burritos and southwest chicken salad.

Filet - O - Fish sandwich is common around the world. Rest all items are different as per local taste and ingredients.



McAllo Tikki Burger from India is very tasty. Hope one day they bring it to USA. It has a Potato patty.

I know. As I read the list of states, I started to wonder how I would gracefully exit any McDonalds that listed those as choices. Mississippi is the poorest state in the country, probably the saddest. The list took my appetite away.

The new stuff that's coming to MacDonalds, they can keep. Yuck. Big time YUCK. When I go to McDonalds I get the Happy Meal. It has a normal sized burger and some fries, apple juice, and then I save the apple slices (preserved with citrus) to make a salad later on. It's supposed to be a kid's meal but it's a good size for an adult for lunch.

There are also lots of McDonalds overseas that offer a small cup of corn as a side dish.

Also to add to that list Korea has a Bulgogi burger, I forget exact name.

I was in Budapest in the early '90s, and I spotted "Vegetarian Whopper" on the menu board at one of the Burger Kings in that city.
I ordered one, and discovered that this was simply a "whopper" bun with one small piece of lettuce, one slice of tomato, a smear of mayo, and a bit of onion. In other words, a Whopper that included everything but the meat.

I guess that I was wrong to assume that they would have used a vegetable-based patty, but the amount of filling in that sandwich was so meager that it was... pathetic.
