I knew I kept those old Euros and Canadian coins around for a reason!

Tomorrow (Thurs, June 6), you can take any piece of foreign currency and trade it in for one of the new foreign menu items. It doesn’t matter what country it’s from or how much you’ve got . . . like, even if you’ve got only one Indonesian rupiah, which is barely worth a fraction of a penny, you can trade it in for one of those items.

So what are the items?


  • Stroopwafel McFlurry (The Netherlands): Our creamy vanilla soft serve, mixed with a rich caramel swirl, featuring authentic chopped Dutch Daelmans Stroopwafel caramel waffle cookie pieces. Cookies and soft serve? Yes please.

  • Tomato Mozzarella Chicken Sandwich (Canada): Made with a grilled or crispy all white meat, juicy and tender chicken, the Tomato Mozzarella Chicken Sandwich is topped with tomato & herb sauce, creamy mozzarella cheese, slivered onions, fresh lettuce and sliced Roma tomatoes served on a freshly toasted artisan roll.

  • Cheesy Bacon Fries (Australia): Look familiar? That’s right, Cheesy Bacon Fries are back! After such a positive customer reaction to Australia’s Cheesy Bacon Fries in the U.S., they’re taking a victory lap. Don’t miss our World Famous Fries topped with real cheddar cheese sauce and chopped Applewood Smoked bacon.


I think I’d go with the Stroopwafel McFlurry as my choice!

The press release from McDonald’s says it is only available at “participating locations.” I’ve tried to see if there is a list of those locations, with no luck. Hopefully, it’s just legal jargon they have to say and this is really available pretty much everywhere! I shall report back tomorrow.

Now, to go rummage around for a stray Canadian dime!
