Fast food is a booming industry, not only in our country, but all over the planet. Now, you have fast food chains like McDonalds and Pizza Hut moving themselves to as many different locations as they can in the world. One thing they seem to notice is, there needs to be area specific food for wherever they are putting up a new chain, or the place just will not succeed.
This means, you have McDonalds in different countries serving things that they would never serve here whilst also making sure they still have some American standards available for their varied customers. While the above lobster roll may be familiar to some New Englanders and Canadians, that is not necessarily the case for every other location. Most chains have never carried it, and that is just one example of many. Heck, that example is mild. How about a pizza stuffed with barbecue sauce and cream cheese? Yeah, this gets pretty odd.
Mental Floss put together a cool list of 15 items you can get at other fast food places around the world. Some of the food is familiar, some of it, not so much. Burger King's pumpkin burger being a prime example of just how WTF some of this stuff gets. But remember the old saying: one man's yuck is another man's yum. Sorry, I just made that up, but it stays.
