It’s always interesting to explore menu options at international McDonald’s locations. At the same time, it’s kind of a bummer because a lot of the items unique to other countries make our basic McChickens and Big Macs seem McBooooring (though I do love them so).
Case in point: the Share Bucket Mixed. It’s six McNuggets, six chicken wings, and six shrimp, with cocktail sauce and a dipping sauce of your choice. This thing is MASSIVE, and I can totally see hungry football fans (perhaps even hangry, depending on which team is winning) football fans gathered round the bucket on game day. Unfortunately, though, this big ol’ bucket is on the McDonald’s Switzerland menu, so it’s going to take a long flight to try it for yourself.
Look at this thing!
According to McDonald’s Switzerland’s website, the Share Bucket is “the perfect finger food mix to bring and share.” For those who want to skip the shrimp, there’s also a Share Bucket Chicken, with McNuggets and Chicken Wings. The die-hard McNugget people can opt for the Share Bucket McNuggets, which comes with 22 nuggets.
Instagrammer @foodbeast reposted the photo of the Share Bucket Mixed, and Instagram users responded with mixed emotions. One person wrote, “Man they got the big ass shrimps and (fire emoji) wings over there and all we got in the states is the nasty ass mcrib.” Another said, “MAKE THIS IN AMERICA, I WOULD SPENT MONEY THERE EVERYDAY!!!!” A nay-sayer wrote, “Shrimp in Switzerland? It’s 12 hours from the nearest ocean, run like hell”.
According to McDonald’s Switzerland’s website, the Bucket Share Mixed is not available in all stores. We’ve reached out to McDonald’s Switzerland for more information about the menu item’s availability, and will update as we hear back.
If you have a hankering for some exciting new McDonald’s choices, but can’t get over to Switzerland anytime soon, you can head to McDonald’s headquarters in Chicago to try new international items. There’s a Hershey’s Cookies ‘N’ Crème McFlurry—enough said.
