McDonald’s, the burger-led fast food giants familiar to millions, has taken a massive step outside its comfort zone with its latest culinary creation.
From hot dogs to pizza, McDonald’s has never been afraid to experiment with its menu options in a bid to attract new customers.
Though it has not always worked out – as the above examples demonstrate – it’s never stopped the guys behind the Golden Arches from exploring brave new worlds when it comes to all things meat and bun based.
However, some are questioning whether McDonald’s may have gone too far with its latest creation – a chocolate burger.
Just to clarify: this burger, dubbed The Sweety, contains absolutely no meat products, gherkins or even cheese for that matter.
Instead, The Sweety is a brioche bun filled with gooey Nutella.
“A soft sweetness has arrived that you will not be able to resist,” a message on the company’s Facebook page read.
“Try Sweety with Nutella now: soft bread with a creamy, indulgent centre!”
But before you go and get too excited about the prospect of the Sweety, it’s probably worth pointing out that the sweet burger is, initially at least, only available to those visiting McDonald’s in Italy.
