10 Fast Food Items You Can’t Have

Going Global

Fast food chains like McDonald’s don’t become global brands by cooking up the same old burgers and fries in every country. Chains wishing to hang a shingle in a new country generally follow a strategy known as “localization,” tailoring their menus to fit local tastes. In some cases it’s subtle (in China, for instance, you can get chili garlic sauce with your McNuggets) while in other cases the menu is almost unrecognizable (in India, you won’t find any beef or pork at burger chains). That means that fast food fans in other countries get menu items that Americans can only dream of. Here are a few we wish we could have. Photo Credit: rachaelvoorhees
