The new Sweety con Nutella, unveiled yesterday on the McDonald’s Italy Facebook page, isn’t a savory burger at all, and therefore has no thawed meat puck or processed cheese contaminating its soft, hopefully still warm roll. A generous glop of everybody’s favorite chocolate-hazelnut spread has been inserted in its place. The pastry gets served in its own “burger” clamshell, but The Independent warns you’ll have to visit a McCafé in Italy to find one. There’s no shortage of great espresso over there to class things up, though, so there are worse things to seek out as a hungry tourist visiting the Boot.
It is weird that this bastardized cream-filled doughnut looks more like a decent burger than any of those “gourmet” jobs the chain’s rolled out in recent memory, but still, credit where credit’s due.
