Every international fast food chain has menu items based around local cuisine. French McDonald’s locations feature more baked goods than their US counterparts, while Mcdonald’s Japan has items such as a cheese-stuffed pork katsu sandwich.
McDonald’s locations in Italy just introduced these new deep-fried stuffed olives, Brand Eating reports. The pitted olives are stuffed with meat (likely beef), then breaded and deep fried. They’re served in about five bite-sized portions.
Olive all’Ascolana is a regional dish that’s served as an appetizer throughout the country.
The olives will only be available for a limited time on the McItaly menu.
