Need more proof that the whole world has gone mad? You may want to sit down for this one: McDonald’s – the burger chain – is now serving dessert tacos… in, of all places, Italy! What’s next? Burger King serving some sort of savory gelato in Mexico? What are we supposed to believe in now?
To be fair, we may be exaggerating a little bit: It is an election year, after all. But McDonald’s Italy has recently introduced what’s being called the “Sundae Pocket” – vanilla soft serve, topped with a drizzle of fudge and hazelnuts, placed inside a folded “cialda di pan di Spagna” – which, call Mario Batali, but I’m pretty sure it’s a thin sponge cake. (Google Translate seems to want to tell me it means a “sponge cake waffle” which sounds both amazing and not like a real thing.)
