About This Quiz

McDonald's first opened back in 1940, and now there are over 37,000 of them around the world. The chain serves 69 million people every single day; that's more than the entire population of Canada. That's a heck of a lot of McNuggets. With all of those people passing under the Golden Arches, you have to wonder how much attention they're all paying to what's on the menu from day to day. It's well known that McDonald's has all kinds of unusual items around the world and at different times of the year. One day there's a McRib, the next aMcLobster and then maybe a Shamrock Shake. It's a lot to keep track of.

If you've been paying attention over the years, maybe dropping into McDonald's for a Big Mac now and then, it's possible you're all up to date on just what the restaurant serves. Do you think you could pick a fake item out of a lineup? If we told you about the latest McSpaghetti dish, would you know it was real or would you think it was all a scam?  If you think you know your totally real Taro pie for your questionable Steak and Kidney pie, your Arch Deluxe from your McBacon Kebab, take your best McShot and do the quiz!
