You Would Think You Could Trust McDonald's, At Least

Even though it probably won't ever happen, I have had thoughts and dreams of traveling the world.  However, one of the big problems with that is my finickiness when it comes to the food I eat.  Actually, it has more to do with foods I WON'T eat.  I am not an adventurous person when it comes to food.  I like what I like and it takes a lot to get me to try something new.  K has gotten perturbed with me on more than one occasion because I order the same things at the same restaurants when we go out.  But, when I go out to eat, I'm usually hungry, so I want to order something that I KNOW I will eat and like.  Period.  So shoot me.

McDonald's has a presence all over the world.  Actually, there are McDonald's in about 124 countries around the world--and there are more than 31,000 individual restaurants.  I always figured that if I traveled, I would have at least ONE restaurant with food that I would eat.  Not so fast.  While I'm sure the same things are served in all McDonald's, there definitely are some strange things served in other parts of the world.  Ah, beer anyone?  Germany serves that.  How about rice and beans?  Costa Rica is where you will find that.  To find out more strange McDonald's menu items, go here to read the rest of the story. 

So, I can't travel and stay in my own little protected shell as I thought I could.  I just might have to stay closer to home.  But then, I LIKE it here in my own little world.  :D


(Come back soon for a different look at Wal-Mart!)

I'm like you, I usually order something I know I'll eat. I've heard that McDonald's caters to the tastes of whatever country it's in, but I wonder if the french fries are the same all over?

In all of my world travels--HA!! :D--the food doesn't always seem to be the same. When we were in Canada (Niagara Falls) for The Youngest's wedding, we ate at Outback. The menu had many differences and when we were able to get something close to what we were used to, it didn't 'translate' well. So, it would be interesting to see if some of the staples came close to what we know here in the US. (The Krispy Kreme donuts were the same, but they were imported from the States daily. ;))

Dear Anonymous: If you spent ANY time reading my blog, you would realize that the majority of the things I write are done so with my tongue firmly in my cheek. That being said, you really don't need to come back here any time soon. Good by.

Love you cmk!

I wouldn't starve if I had to eat at McDonald's every day--at least, not in the US. ;)

I don't really want to know what's on the menu in some countries!

To say the least, some of it IS unusual.
