    Here's Just How Different McDonald's Food And Drink Looks In Britain

    I need a Cheese Sharebox all to myself.

    In the past, we've shown you some of the McDonald's menu items you can't get in America — like the Grilled Chicken Twisty Pasta served in China — but, today let's specifically talk about what's being served in the UK!

    McDonald's /

    TikTok user @isseypovs recently went viral for sharing what she orders at the McDonald's in Britain:


    What’s your McDonald’s order ?

    She orders the Sweet Chili Chicken Wrap (RIP to the American McDonald's Snack Wraps 😭):

    @isseypovs /

    According to the McDonald's website, the Sweet Chicken Chili One is a crispy chicken breast with sweet chilli sauce, mayo, lettuce, and cucumber wrapped in a tortilla.

    And then she enjoys a Cheese Sharebox to herself — online these things are called Nacho Cheese Wedges:

    @isseypovs /

    The Nacho Cheese Wedges are fried nacho cheese with spicy jalapeño slices and it's served with sour cream and chive dip.

    She also orders a Coke, in case you were wondering.

    As an American, the video made me very curious about what other foods you can order at a McDonald's in the UK. So, I started looking for similar videos on the app.


    I stumbled upon one that show just how much larger our drink sizes are than theirs:


    Americans are greedy only joking I want more Coca Cola #mcdonalds #america #uk #british #american #food

    The American size SMALL drink is nearly equivalent to the UK's LARGE. Oh, and the American large is almost a liter. 😳

    Next I found user @leahxlchannel's three-part series highlighting popular McDonald's menu items in the UK:


    What would you want? What can we keep? @mcdonalds #ukmcdonalds #menu #breakfast #ukvsusa #xlfam #fyp

    The main breakfast items that are different from what we have in America are the Bacon Roll and the Cheesy Bacon Flatbread. (Also, I don't think the US offers doubles on breakfast items.)

    @leahxlchannel /

    The Bacon Roll is simply bacon on a bun with tomato ketchup or brown sauce (don't ask me what brown sauce is, I have no idea) and the Cheesy Bacon Flatbread is pretty self explanatory.

    In her next two videos, she shared some of the lunch items:


    What is the same as yours? What is different? #ukmcdonalds #menu #sandwiches #ukvsusa #xlfam #fyp

    The differing lunch items that stuck out to me were the Triple Cheeseburger, the Bacon Mayo Chicken, and the Chicken Legend.

    @leahxlchannel /

    You can pretty much tell what comes on each sandwich by the picture and name.

    Her last video personally made me very jealous:


    I know there are some difference here. #mcdonalds #uk #ukmenu #ukvsusa #xlfam #fyp

    The UK serves a BBQ and Bacon Chicken One (lol, I love how they call their wraps "ones") and Chicken Selects (AKA chicken strips):

    @leahxlchannel /

    The BBQ and Bacon Chicken One is crispy chicken, bacon, BBQ sauce, lettuce, tomato, and mayo wrapped in a tortilla and the Chicken Selects are self explanatory.

    They also serve Mozzarella Dippers and, during the holidays, they have Cheese Melt Dippers:

    @leahxlchannel /

    The Mozzarella Dippers are clearly just cheese sticks and the Cheese Melt Dippers are covered in herb-infused breadcrumbs and made with Emmental and mozzarella cheese.

    I should once again reference the sizing differences that were pointed out in this video. This time, it was about the fries. Britains, I am so sorry your small fry is the size of a kiddie size fry in America.
