Reasons to plan a post-quarantine trip to France: the art, the wine, the romance … and McDonald’s.
That’s the feeling thousands of TikTok users are getting, thanks to one user’s tour inside the chain’s French version.
It’s clear to see why the video is so popular. Norris’ tour shows a huge spread of pastries, desserts and breakfast snacks — including macaroons, donuts and hot chocolate.
At the McDonald’s Norris visited, customers can browse the pastry selection at the McCafe then order their breakfast on a touchscreen. The TikToker opted for a brunch special, which comes with two entrees, a drink and an order of fruit.
Norris ordered a sandwich and a few of the chain’s McGriddles, which are essentially served as mini-pancakes in France. He said the sweet breakfast treats were “next-level.”
“They should have these in the U.S., they’re way softer,” he added.
TikTok users seemed to agree with Norris’ enthusiasm. Many said the French version of McDonald’s looked “way better” and challenged the U.S. to step up its game.
“This is why I’m moving to France,” one user wrote.
“Why can’t we have this?” another added.
“So you’re telling me they sell macaroons?” another reacted.
Of course, breakfast isn’t the only thing that sets the French version apart. As BuzzFeed reported, McDonald’s in France also sells baguettes, croque monsieur sandwiches and even beer.
