McSpicy Paneer from McDonald's India
What's not to love about a deep-fried block of paneer cheese battered with "fiery, crunchy batter," and topped with tandoori mayo? Well...besides the calorie count. This little number clocks in at 702 calories—almost double the damage of a McChicken (360 calories)
Baguette Sandwiches from McDonald's France
Forget the Royale with Cheese. If you think that's as exotic as McDonald's gets in France, you don't know Jacques. These baguette sandwiches are much more intriguing. On the left, we have the Chicken Curry (a small baguette with breaded chicken patties, potato cakes and curry sauce); on the right, the Beef Mustard (two small beef patties topped with potato cakes and mustard sauce).
Shoarma Burger from McDonald's Netherlands
It's a simple alteration, but creamy garlic kebab sauce on a McDonald's burger sounds like a big upgrade.
Benedict Bagel from McDonald's New Zealand
The hollandaise sauce and the bread (bagel, not English muffin) is all that's setting the NYC Benedict Bagel apart from the standard Egg McMuffin you'll get at any McDonald's in the US, but it's that minor difference that makes it all the more enticing. Breakfast biscuits and McGriddles have yet to make it to McDonald's New Zealand, so it's bagel, muffin, or nothin'.
Mediterranean Chicken from McDonald's UK
This McChicken-esque sandwich features diced red and yellow peppers, Batavia lettuce and sweet, spicy tomato sauce on a focaccia-style bun. If nuggets are more your thing, the sweet curry dip (with apricot puree) sounds like the way to go.
Bulgogi Burger from McDonald's South Korea
As far as beef-based burgers go, the Bulgogi Burger looks pretty tasty, though it's hard to tell from the photo alone whether or not the bulgogi sauce would really deliver on flavor. Still, we'd definitely order this...at least once.
Rye Feast from McDonald's Finland
Regular cheeseburger buns get swapped out for a crusty rye bun on this special offering at McDonald's restaurants in Finland. Toppings are pretty standard, except for the mayo-based "McFeast" sauce. Along with the burger, we'd get an order of fries and a packet of "El Maco" spice mixture to spice 'em up.
Spinach and Parmesan Cheese Nuggets from McDonald's Italy
These spinach and cheese-stuffed nuggets from the aptly-enough named "The Delicacies" menu (which also includes Brie nuggets, and a snack-sized block of Parmesan cheese) look pretty tempting.
Cheese Empanadas from McDonald's Chile
It's hard to tell from the promo shot, but these empanadas available at McDonald's in Chile look pretty tasty. Judging by the darker splotches, they look like they're fried, and fried cheese and dough is almost always great.
Chicken Nugget Sauces from McDonald's Hong Kong
It's not so much the nuggets themselves, but the sauces that are available at McDonald's in Hong Kong that get us going...like Singapore Curry, Korean Chili, and Sesame Miso. Other summer promotions we want to try: Mango Sundae, Kumquat Green Tea Punch, and a Black and White Coffee McFloat.
Emmentaler Sticks from McDonald's Austria
At McDonald's Austria, you can get the standard chicken McNuggets, but these breaded Emmentaler sticks with Lingonberry jam look pretty tasty, too.
McPatatas from McDonald's Mexico
It's hard to imagine anything better than McDonald's french fries, but these thick-cut, seasoned steak fries available at McDonald's locations in Mexico look like a delicious alternative.
Mac Floats from McDonald's Japan
Soda water, fruit juice, and soft serve? Why not? These Mac Floats (available in mango, blueberry, and melon) sound fun and refreshing. Fruit flavors too weird for you? There's always the Coke or coffee float.
Oreo Affogato from McDonald's South Korea
Hiding among the usual desserts (sundaes, cones, and McFlurrys) is this unusual treat: crushed Oreos topped with soft-serve ice cream, espresso, and whipped cream. Yum!
Vanilla Chai Tea Iced Frappé from McDonald's Canada
This mildly spiced vanilla chai tea iced frappé looks downright refreshing. In all likelihood, it tastes like a tea-tinged vanilla milkshake...not like there's anything wrong with that.
Daim McFlurry from McDonald's Denmark
Know those little bags of chocolate-covered toffee you can get at Ikea? In Denmark, you can also get them in your McFlurry. Pretty sweet.
Flavor Twist Cones from McDonald's Malaysia
There's nothing wrong with keeping it simple with a vanilla cone, but when you can add a flavor swirl (mocha, green apple, chocolate, strawberry), you might as well go for it. At McDonald's locations in Malaysia, you can do just that.
Ice Cream Desserts from McDonald's Philippines
The ice cream category is pretty exciting at McDonald's locations in the Philippines. Not only can you get a sundae with both hot caramel and hot chocolate, there's also ube, strawberry, and chocolate dipped cones (with or without crisp rice cereal).
Toblerone McFlurry from McDonald's Turkey
Little bits of Toblerone churned up with vanilla soft serve? Say no more: we want one.
McDonaldland Cookies from McDonald's Australia
Anyone else miss these cookies? McDonald's Australia has still got 'em.
Dream Apple Pie from McDonald's Bosnia & Herzegovina
Ok, so it's just an apple pie or cherry served with ice cream and strawberry sauce (which you could hack yourself at any McD's), but it's so much easier when you can order it readily assembled.
Muffins from McDonald's France
This sponge cake with chocolate chips and a creamy hazelnut filling looks like a good companion to a cup of coffee.
Everything from McCafé France
Want to really feel jealous? Check out the pastries at McCafé France. These special locations, which focus on coffee and sweets, have everything from apple, lemon, and milk chocolate hazelnut tarts, to croissants, cheesecake, tiramisu, and canelés...not to mention six different flavors of macarons.
