McDonald's to Offer Boring Global Hits for Limited Time Next Month

After the successful launch of Cheesy Bacon Fries earlier this year, McDonald's has announced that they'll be offering other international menu "hits" for a limited time starting in June. (I had no idea the Bacon Fries were an Australian menu item for the Golden Arches. Did you?)

Offerings include such pedestrian-sounding items as a chicken sandwich with tomato and mozzarella, something called the Grand Extreme Bacon Burger, and a Stroopwafel McFlurry featuring bits of waffle with vanilla soft serve and caramel swirl.

While I'm always wooed by "limited time" offerings, I'm a bit disappointed that the new items are so, well, pedestrian. Where's the Ebi Filet-O-Shrimp? Or the McNurnburger featuring three brats on a bun with onions and mustard? Or the Malaysian classic The Prosperity Burger? – Dan Taylor
