Yes, you read that right: tater tots. The fast-food giant's Australian branch is serving at select locations its new Summer Sides Box (don't forget, it's summer in the Southern Hemisphere), a shareable meal that includes 8 classic Chicken McNuggets, 12 Chicken McBites and 18 Hash Brown Bites - the Aussie McDonald's equivalent of tater tots - along with dipping sauces.
That's not the only menu item that might surprise some American consumers. A look at McDonald's Australia's full menu yields several items unheard of stateside. For instance, have you ever heard of Sweet Chili and Sour Cream Loaded Fries?
How about the breakfast favorite, the Tomato Relish Roll?
There's no word yet on whether the tater tots will make their way stateside, but judging by how many menu items McDonald's Australia has that we don't, it might seem unlikely.
