McDonald’s Food And Drink 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!

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

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

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:

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:

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:

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.)

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:

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

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


Her last video personally made me very jealous:

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 / tiktok.com

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:

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.
