McDonalds items not available in the U.S

By now, nearly everyone in the world is at least familiar with the brand McDonalds. Although they are mostly known around the world for their iconic hamburger and french fries, there are plenty more items that most do not know about. Why? They are country specific items. Since 1955, McDonalds has been adapting its menu to please customers of every country that it sets foot in.

How about a McKebab from Israel? Muslims and Hindus in India do not have to worry about the McDonalds menu offending religious practices since there is no beef or pork on the menu. Along with burgers that are Indian themed, they have vegetarian options, such as the McCurry pan. In Spain, they serve a cold gazpacho, which is a cold tomato soup and the national dish of the Andalusian region of Spain. It's true that in Germany, they serve beer in McDonalds, and mango flavored dessert pies are a hit in Nicaragua.

Many American travelers try to stay away from McDonalds because they do not want to eat the same hamburger they would eat at home. But thanks to McDonalds ability to adapt its menu for an international customer base, eating at McDonalds overseas may not be just like home after all.
