McDonald's France Parodies American Meals in its Latest Menu

McDonald's France's latest menu attempts to popularize American food culture with an exclusively American-themed spread of fast food choices. The menu, titled 'American Summer,' satirically plays off of cultural stereotypes and staple food items that are exclusive to the USA.

The McDonald's France menu features items such as the 'California and Chicken' sandwich filled with bacon and avocado sauce, the 'Florida and Beef' sandwich and the 'Classic Chewy Chips' side. Some of the items may seem like a bizarre food pairing to north Americans. For example, the 'Classic Chewy Chips' are meant to be a cross between a potato chip and a fry.

The goal of the menu is to offer French citizens a chance to experience staple American food items without having to leave the country. Stats for Satirical American Menus Trending: Older & Warm
