This is the first of two excellent ideas on the list coming out of McDonald’s in Japan. From the outside, it looks like the stateside McDonald’s Apple Pie, but it’s salty and savory, with mashed potatoes and bacon deep-fried in the familiar apple pie shell.  It sells for 120 Japanese yen – $1.45 US.

Would we eat it:  With bells on.
