It’s not often that we get a press release from McDonald’s, but this is pretty cool. Considering we have many international travelers in our midst, it might be something you want to do– if you eat at McDonald’s, that is. This Thursday, June 6, from 2-5 p.m., you can pay with foreign currency because Mickey D’s is bringing favorites from around the world
to make you fat to delight your tastebuds. Honestly, I might see if I have some leftover pesos and go try the Stroopwaffel McFlurry. Bring in any amount of foreign currency and try one of their four global tastes (see their descriptions below).
If you’re wondering where there is a McDonald’s near here, you can find them at 1635 Benning Road NE, one at 1535 Pennsylvania Avenue SE and one inside Union Station, at the eastern end of the boarding area. You’re welcome. Now, don’t ask me if all three are participating restaurants
From the press release:
Have an extra Euro laying around? Found a Japanese Yen in that old travel fanny pack? Wondering what to do with that Rupee from last summer’s trip to India? Start rummaging under those couch cushions, take that spare foreign currency you have, and head around the corner to your nearest participating McDonald’s on Thursday, June 6 between 2—5 p.m. local time, and exchange one piece of foreign currency for any one Worldwide Favorites menu item* at McDonald’s International Currency Exchange:
- 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.
- Grand McExtreme Bacon Burger (Spain): A quarter pound** of 100 percent fresh beef*** topped with thick cut Applewood smoked bacon, smoky McBacon Sauce, real Gouda cheese and slivered onions served on a freshly toasted sesame seed bun.
- 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.
P.S.: I still kind of miss the I Street SE McDonald’s.
