McDonald’s Gives Its U.K. Customers A Taste Of The U.S.A.

This is actually pretty hilarious.

America has earned itself plenty of different reputations when it comes to its food game, but sometimes other countries just don’t get it right. They have an idea of what Americans eat on a daily basis, but of course, everybody is different.

However, that hasn’t stopped McDonald’s in the U.K. from bringing back its “Great Tastes of America” menu, and offering a line-up of burgers that just flat out aren’t offered in the U.S., which is kind of silly.

This year, Brand Eating reports that the menu features four different burgers that are all only available for a limited amount of time (two weeks each).

Until May 16, you can order “The New York Stack.” That’s a burger with two beef patties, beechwood-smoked bacon, cheese, coleslaw, ketchup, mustard, lettuce, and pickles on a sesame and poppyseed-topped bagel.

Then once May 17 hits, you can order the “South Carolina Stack” until May 31. That burger includes two beef patties, beechwood-smoked bacon, smoky cheese, grilled onions, lettuce, and a “sweet ā€˜nā€™ tangy” South Carolina mustard sauce on a toasted corn meal-dusted bun.

May 31 brings the “Louisiana Stack” to the forefront, and until June 13 you can order this burger, which features two beef patties, pepper jack cheese, red and yellow peppers, mayo, and spicy ketchup on a spicy sesame seed bun.

Finally, the “Tennessee Stack” makes it grand debut on June 27, and it consists of two beef patties, beechwood-smoked bacon, smoky cheese, grilled onions, lettuce, and “Tennessee-style” BBQ sauce on a toasted flour-topped bun.

In addition to the four “American” burgers, McDonald’s will also be offering the following menu items as part of its American-themed menu: The Ranch California Chicken, which is a sandwich; Spicy Nacho Cheese Wedges, which is comprised of four nacho cheese-filled wedges with jalapenos along with a sour cream and chive dip; a Mississippi Mud Pie, which is a vanilla soft-serve-based dessert loaded with chocolatey goodies; and finally a Mississippi Caramel Pie, which also features vanilla soft serve as its base, but then has cookies crumbles, cookie pieces, and caramel-flavored coating and sauce swirled in.

Check Out These Four New Oreo Flavors! (Photos)


By Cooking Panda

If you are anything like us, you are totally on board with Oreo’s constant pumping out of new and interesting flavors.

Sometimes they’ll go with something seasonal and expected, like the Pumpkin Spice variety. Sometimes they’ll do a play on a pre-existing classic, like the Swedish Fish Oreos. Sometimes they’ll try to Oreo-ception us with Cookies n’ Creme Flavored cookies, which is basically just crushed up Oreos stuffed inside Oreos.

They’re always up to something!

Now, according to the Candy Hunting Instagram, there are four totally new flavors being workshopped in the Oreo Vault, and they are slated to potentially hit shelves sometime in 2017.

First up is the one we are most excited for: New Waffles & Syrup Oreos.

Next is the Firework Oreos, slated to be released in early summer 2017. They contain popping candy on the inside of them, making them the perfect Fourth of July treat.

The Jelly Donut Oreos are the ones we are most skeptical about, but have the potential to be super delicious.

Finally, the new Mississippi Mud Pie Oreos, with chocolate and whipped cream flavor creme.

You heard it here first! New Mississippi Mud Pie Oreos will be out this summer!
