Still on the topic of fast food, and the pictures I took this summer: I was lucky enough to be in my country when McDonald's announced their American Weeks.
(I ignorantly have been assuming all this time that McDonald's WAS American Weeks...)
The question lingers: How do you make the Golden Arches MORE American?
(While at the same time also making it Hungarian-friendly)?
First off: AMERICAN FLAG AS A BACKDROP FOR BURGERS.
Second: McChicken BBQ (BBQ is a very American thing in our eyes)
Third: Crunchy Atlanta Burger (PUT THE FRIES INSIDE THE BURGER) (also BACON)
Fourth: Las Vegas BBQ (MORE BBQ) (I don't even know how to spell the full word)
Fifth: Beverly Hills Cheese Bites (filled with ketchup) and Chicago Potato Chips (no footnote to explain what makes them Chicago, I feel lost now)
(Chips are also not a side that you normally get in Hungary)
at the same time
These are Túró Rudi (cottage-cheese-and-chocolate) flavored flurries. I have been over the cult status of Túró Rudi before.
This whole thing made me feel incredibly American and incredibly Hungarian ALL AT THE SAME TIME.
Good job, Meki.
