McDonald's creates Japanese product for Japanese market.  Therefore, that's totally 4/20.

Top notch journalism.

False advertising.

That's not a 'Spliffy' tag.

Not 'Spliffy' at all.

/Doesn't smoke, still wants to see a proper tag.

Why do all the overseas markets get all the interesting sounding stuff while we in the States get a downgraded chicken sandwich with an upgraded sauce as the "new" menu item?

Well, at least we, in the US, got the crispy chicken sandwich.

So we've got that going for us.......which is nice......I guess......

The quality of food is much better in the European McDonald's I've been to.  Mostly burgers look like the pictures instead of something someone deflated.

The buttermilk crispy deluxe is the superior chicken sandwich on their menu by far.

That's a burger for anime otaku, not stoners. If it was a stoner burger you would at least have the common decency to cheese and bacon on it. The only dudes excited about a burger on rice buns slathered with ginger soy sauce are likely people that cosplay and call their upperclassmen "Senpai".

That's a blistering, rage-filled hot take there. How did you come to that conclusion?

Yeah, it's an idiotic piece.  Especially the comparison to Wingstop's Blazed & Glazed, which is actually available here, albeit just for a few days, and mysteriously absent from my local Wingstop on the 70 cent boneless wing days.  😄

That thing looks delicious as hell though. I enjoyed some teriyaki burgers from McDs when I was in Japan. Wish they'd bring some of those items to the US menu.

Go watch those Food Wars US vs Japan episodes on YouTube.  Down the line even the crappiest US fast food outfit has more interesting options in Japan.  A few inevitably gross, but a surprising number which sound good.  But these businesses are very risk adverse in the US market, very conservative, and don't usually roll out anything that doesn't first seem very "American" and second, pass a really thorough market test first.  I was shocked when McDonald's rolled out that BTS meal with Sweet Chili Sauce, just because I'd normally assume Sweet Chili would terrify the American masses (despite being very mild).   Of course, they upcharged for that meal ridiculously.  And probably though their Szechuan Sauce was a precident.

America is much, much bigger and isn't surrounded on all sides by nearby ports.  Fast food places are required by the business model to maintain a standard menu, as much as possible, all across America.  You can experiment a bit around the edges, but you'll notice almost none of those attempts ever make it to the main menu permanently.  You sell burgers and fries to sell sodas with massive markups.  And do everything possible to keep your costs down.

Here's my free million-dollar business idea for anyone who can talk MCD into it:  Giant international McDonalds in the tourist centers of the US. Times Square, Mall of America, whatever. They'd serve dishes from McDonald's around the world. At the very least, you'd have people lining up for a Royal with Cheese.

For me, it's the McChicken. The best fast food sandwich. I even ask for extra McChicken sauce packets and the staff is so friendly and more than willing to oblige.

One time I asked for McChicken sauce packets and they gave me three. I said, "Wow, three for free!" and the nice friendly McDonald's worker laughed and said, "I'm going to call you 3-for-free!".

Now the staff greets me with "hey it's 3-for-free!" and ALWAYS give me three packets. It's such a fun and cool atmosphere at my local McDonald's restaurant, I go there at least 3 times a week for lunch and a large iced coffee with milk instead of cream, 1-2 times for breakfast on the weekend, and maybe once for dinner when I'm in a rush but want a great meal that is affordable, fast, and can match my daily nutritional needs.

I even dip my fries in McChicken sauce, it's delicious! What a great restaurant.

Step 1. Get so high that you find yourself in a McD's IN TOKYO
Step 2. Buy as much more of that reef as you can cause it got you so high that you found yourself in a McD's IN TOKYO
Step 3. Contact your parole officer cause you are in a McD's IN TOKYO

As a stoner, I can assure you there is nothing remotely compelling about tartar sauce to the stoned palate.

It's basically mayonnaise that thinks it's fooling everyone by coming back in with a fake mustache.

I had a ridiculous craving yesterday for a burger. Didn't want to cook one, so I said screw it and got McDonald's delivered. For myself. Triple cheeseburger, and double quarter pounder. Figured I'd save one of em for later. Nope. Smashed them both in 5 minutes flat. I don't even know I managed to swallow some of it because I certainly didn't chew more than a couple times. Not even exaggerating at all. It was as disgusting and wonderful as it sounds. Haven't smoked since Sunday.

Whatever this thing is, I might do the same to it if I can get my hands on it and have that same craving again.

It is actually an art form. Take a two sentence story, write a headline to get a few clicks and then stretch it out enough to display the same as four times.

Finding 15 tweets from unverified "nobody" accounts to shove in between every half sentence you write is the real art of it though

Great, Japan. Of course. Meanwhile, we get 2000 calorie behemoths full of fried fat with fat sauce on a sugar-filled bun with a side of fried fat and we can wash it down with a cup of high fructose corn syrup with enough acid to rot your teeth.

Because research has shown that's what the different markets are going to buy.

If this burger was served on a bun made of hashbrowns, I could see it selling here.

As soon as I read "Southern Barbarian Sauce"...  I realized they're basically doing chicken nanban for the Miyazaki style version. And I lerbs me some chicken nanban.  I might have to try it later this week.
