McDonald's Florida Burger: Only in France
McDonald's has created some new American-based sandwiches, including a new Florida beef sandwich. They only catch? So far, they're available only in France.
According to the website, the sandwich was inspired by Florida, with "two chopped steaks and summer sauce." What's summer sauce? Your guess is as good as ours, but we're betting it has something to do with the color orange.
The Florida beef sammie also slathers the burger with peppers, onions, cheese, bacon, pepper, and salad. Kind of like a backyard barbecue on a sesame seed bun. It's also interesting to note that the McDonald's France website gives much more information on the beef used in its patties, noting that the burgers are 100 percent "pure muscle," using "muscles from the front of cattle such as the shoulder and collar."
The Florida & Beef is part of an "American Summer" collection that also includes a California & Chicken sandwich, which features a braided chicken patty with bacon, cheese, lettuce, onions, and avocado sauce.
If you're on some grand European summer tour, be sure to also check out the Miami fries, available in Italy.
Of course, we'll stick to Le Royal with Cheese.
