McDonald’s Secret Menu Items

A secret menu suggests your ingredients are assembled for you. In this case, however, you’ll likely be doing most of the heavy-lifting — and by that, we mean making DIY permutations of classic McDonald’s mains.

The McAffogato

Order a vanilla cone and an espresso shot, then combine the two. And remember: an affogato should rightly be a scoop of ice cream that’s doused in freshly-pulled espresso, and not the other way around.

The Coke Spider

Sorry if this one excited you for the wrong reasons — but a Coke Spider is really just slang for an ice cream soda.

And it’s as straightforward as it sounds: order a vanilla cone and Coca-Cola Original Taste Less Sugar (yes, what a name), then scoop your ice cream into your drink. It’s an easy substitute for the A&W Root Beer Float if you’re jonesing for one but reluctant to travel to Jewel Changi Airport.

The Cappuccino Turnt (Elevated) Mocha

Now, this one’s a bit contentious, particularly if you’re something of a food snob (and if you are, why’re you even a McDonald’s fan?). Order a McCafe Cappuccino or McCafe Latte, then request for hot fudge sauce to be added to the mix. If you’d rather a cold version — but aren’t a fan of the Mocha Frappe — then same applies. Ask for hot fudge sauce to be added to an iced latte, then drink up!

The Land, Sea and Air Burger

If you’ve read Totto-Chan, you might recall a chapter in which the schoolchildren are instructed to pack lunches containing ‘something from the ocean and something from the hills’. That could mean anything from dried bonito (for ‘sea food’) to an omelette (for ‘land food’), for instance.

So when I chanced upon McDonald’s Land, Sea and Air Burger, it comparably sounded like disappointment rolled into one. Just think: beef, fish and chicken patties layered with cheese, tartar sauce and pickles, then sandwiched between burger buns. I’ll stick to my Filet-O-Fish, thank you very much.

The Oreo Milkshake

If calories don’t scare you, order a chocolate or strawberry milkshake and ask for Oreo bits to be mixed in.

It’s a milkshake that’ll bring all the…oh, never mind.

McDonald’s Hacks

Deals, schmeals; I get a bigger thrill from discovering new ways to shake up my order, which sometimes bamboozles even the staff. Here’re some of my favourites, although I can’t attest to having tried them all.

Piping Hot Fries

If you’re one of those fake dieters — y’know, the sort of person who proclaims you’re cutting back on junk but still indulge in fried food anyway — then here’s a fake-healthy hack to try: order your French fries without salt.

Maccas’ fries are usually heavily salted immediately after frying, so you’ll instead get a freshly-fried batch, which you can then salt to your liking with the complimentary salt-and-pepper sachets.

Donut Sticks with Chocolate Sauce

McDonald’s new cinnamon sugar-coated Donut Sticks — aka McYouTiao — sound pretty eh to me, but you could well have them elevated in two easy ways.

Order a chocolate pie, crack it in half, and dip your donut sticks into hot chocolate sauce; the alternative’s hot fudge sauce, which you can add to your order for use as a complement to your cinnamon-coated treat.

Resell McDonald’s Toys

Yeah, this one isn’t an entirely novel idea — but it can be lucrative, if you make calculated moves in queuing for the right stuff to resell.

It’s also an easy way to make money, particularly if you regularly purchase Happy Meals…

…like this Smurfs collection, or a supposedly vintage Hamburglar from Maccas’ McDonaldland days of yore.


Get Your Burger Freshly Made

Writing this only reminds me of Adventure Time’s Puncha Yo’ Buns, but that’s beside the point.

If you’ve a low tolerance for pre-made burgers kept warm by food heaters, request for your burger to have steamed buns — not unlike the ones served in a Filet-O-Fish. You’ll enjoy the illusion of a burger served with actually fresh ingredients.
