Around the World: McDonald's Hong Kong - German Chicken Sausage Burger Arrives

In the lead up to this year's World Cup in Brazil, McDonald's is offering the limited-time German Chicken Sausage Burger (as Germany is often one of the top teams competing in the Cup).

The sandwich has been offered before but sometimes offers a few tweaks between appearances. This year sees a long bun sandwiching a spicy, crispy-fried chicken thigh, a German sausage patty, Emmental (Swiss) cheese, sauerkraut, and dill mustard.

A previous version had a hamburger bun, a crispy lemon chicken thigh, and sliced German chicken sausage.

Also being offered for a limited time along with the sandwich are battered potato wedges, BBQ McWings (i.e. Mighty Wings), and a Black Currant McFloat.

If you're wondering why it's not a Team Hong Kong or Team China-themed sandwich for the World Cup, it's because Hong Kong has never qualified and China has only done slightly better by qualifying once.
