Traveling is a great way to experience a different type of local cuisine. As tasty as it can be to try the local food for wherever it is that you're visiting, going to a favorite fast food restaurant can also be an excellent choice when you get hungry.
Along with having favorite foods that we've got at home, the international locations for many of our favorite fast food restaurants have unique menu items that are only available in that country, meaning that we can't get them anywhere else.
To see 10 super odd but intriguing fast food menu items that are only available abroad, keep reading!
10 KFC Japan: Chizza
What's the best part of eating pizza? For many people, it's tasting the warm, crispy crust. Let's just hope that none of those people choose to take a trip to Japan because there, KFC has chosen to put a pizza on the menu that actually has no crust... Kind of.
Instead of having the traditional crust that we're used to, KFC Japan put a special KFC twist on pizza by adding the Chizza to the menu. This menu item is a pizza that has a piece of crispy fried chicken as the crust.
9 Starbucks Japan: Sakura Drinks
These drinks are only available on Starbucks' menu in Japan for a limited time to celebrate the springtime and the blooming of the cherry blossom trees, but they're still so unique that we totally wish Starbucks would make them available worldwide!
The line of sakura drinks at Starbucks Japan includes drinks like Sakura Strawberry Pink Mochi Frappuccino, Sakura Strawberry Pink Milk Latte, Sakura Strawberry Pink Tea, and Spring Season Blend whole bean coffee and other drinks to make at home. The drinks on the menu have sakura sauce and strawberry to make them super sweet.
8 Taco Bell UK: Fully Loaded Fries
This may look like a big bowl of cheesy, loaded nachos but it's actually something more interesting. Nachos seem like a no-brainer from Taco Bell and are definitely not unusual enough to wind up on this list. Instead, these are Fully Loaded Fries, a menu item available at Taco Bell in the UK.
It's a bowl of Taco Bell's spicy seasoned fries with nacho cheese sauce, seasoned beef, sour cream, and a little pico de gallo to top it all off. Move over McDonald's, Taco Bell's Fully Loaded Fries look pretty tasty!
7 McDonald's Italy: Nutella Burger
Nutella is pretty hard to resist, but would we put it on a burger? Maybe not. But in Italy where Nutella originated, McDonald's found a way to make the idea of the Nutella burger work!
This menu item is called the Sweety con Nutella and is known around the web as the "Nutella burger" but rest assured, there's no burger patty in there with the Nutella. It's just Nutella inside those McDonald's hamburger buns!
6 Pizza Hut Australia: Cheeseburger Crust Pizza
There are a lot of different types of crust when it comes to pizza. Pizza crust can be thin and crispy, it can be stuffed with mozzarella cheese, it can be coated in seasoning, or it can even be made of cheeseburgers.
Wait, what? At Pizza Hut Australia, there are a lot of really unique pizza recipes that aren't available anywhere else. Among the most unusual is their Cheeseburger Crust Pizza. Like the name suggests, this pizza is one that has the crust formed around hamburger patties that are covered in cheese.
5 McDonald's Spain: Macarons
Picking up a sweet treat at McDonald's is definitely not something exclusive to international locations. McDonald's has different desserts like ice cream, shakes, McFlurries, and cookies in many different countries around the world.
But in Spain, they take their dessert menu to the next level. There, they offer macarons! A macaron is a meringue-based cookie that is filled with something like ganache, jam, or other filling and can come in many different flavors.
4 McDonald's Philippines: McSpaghetti
What's the first thing that comes to mind when we think of eating at McDonald's? Is it their cheeseburgers? Maybe the McNuggets or their fries? What about McSpaghetti?
While McDonald's has a lot of really delicious offerings on their menu, we have to admit that spaghetti is definitely among the last things that we think of when it comes to this fast food restaurant. But in the Philippines, McSpaghetti with pasta sauce and a little cheese is a popular item on their menu!
3 KFC Philippines: Double Down Dog
The Double Down is something that KFC has featured at their locations in several different countries. It's a sandwich that, instead of having a bun, used two pieces of chicken. Pretty creative, right?
In the Philippines, KFC decided to take the Double Down to the next level by changing it from a sandwich to a hot dog by releasing the Double Down Dog. Instead of using a traditional hot dog bun, this hot dog comes with fried chicken.
2 Dunkin' Donuts China: Pork And Seaweed Doughnut
There are a ton of different kinds of doughnuts served all over the world. Some unique bakeries like Voodoo Doughnut have managed to make an entire business out of creative doughnut flavoring or decorations.
At Dunkin' Donuts in China, they've taken the idea of a creative doughnut flavor to the next level. Pork and seaweed are two savory ingredients that sound like they'd actually be pretty tasty together. But on a doughnut? people who visit Dunkin' Donuts in China can taste it and see for themselves!
1 McDonald's Japan: Choco Fries
We all know that sweet and salty is a pretty tasty combination in the world of food. Salty foods like bacon and potato chips often get covered in chocolate and are a delicious snack. So, it's no surprise that McDonald's decided to take on that combination.
Although the idea of the Choco Fries available at McDonald's in Japan may seem a little on the unusual side, the fact that sweet and salty is such a popular combination means that this is probably pretty delicious.
