Here's what it's like to eat at McDonald's in 7 countries around the world

Business Insider Logo By Mark Matousek of Business Insider | Slide 1 of 29: McDonald's has thousands of locations all around the world. We asked six of our international colleagues - in Singapore, Japan, India, Sweden, and the Netherlands - to visit a McDonald's location near them.They found that the chain catered to local tastes with regional variations on popular items like mayonnaise-flavored French fries and coconut pies.While some were surprised by the quality of McDonald's regional items, others were disappointed. We also tried one of the new items featured at US locations of McDonald's.  With over 36,000 locations in more than 100 countries, McDonald's is one of the most recognizable brands in the world. While it made its name with staples like the Big Mac and Quarter Pounder, the chain tailors its menu to local tastes, which means that a McDonald's in India will look very different from one in the United States. After trying one of McDonald's newest items in the United States, we asked some of our international colleagues in six different countries - Singapore, Japan, India, Sweden, the Netherlands, and the UK - to go to a McDonald's near them and tell us about the experience. We found that each catered to regional tastes with variations on the chain's traditional offerings that surprised us. See what our colleagues had to say below.
