McDonald’s China releases limited edition Spam x Oreo burger
The new product on the McDonald’s China menu has caused quite a stir on social media.
Two slices of Spam meat, crushed Oreo cookies and a mayonnaise topping between two burger buns.
As strange as it may sound, this is actually a new product introduced by McDonald’s China on its menu. Only 400,000 of these burgers will be produced and they are sold at about $2 each.
But it has received quite the backlash, especially on social media where netizens have come out to blast the new dish.
Twitter user @iiiitsandrea posted a photo of the burger along with “I’m hating’ it” in the caption.

Similarly, users @lukitslydia and @beebeejay22 were not entirely convinced.
I can’t imagine the crunch and then sinking feeling once you go through the Oreo and then to the spam 🥵🥵— Lydia Luk (@lukitslydia) December 20, 2020
lemme tell u something, certain things don't go in same sentence,, SPAM, OREOS #1 ON THAT LIST.— Burnt-n-Toasty (@beebeejay22) December 20, 2020
Some were however, more open-minded when it came to the dish.
While Twitter user @AlanVMichaels said he would give it a try, he added that the “jury is out”.
Savory and sweet. I’d try it. No guarantee I would finish it. 😳— Alan Vincent Michaels (@AlanVMichaels) December 20, 2020
I’ve liked spam, since I was a young kid. Going to Hawaii since 2009 rekindled my taste for it. Oreos are a mainstay, of course. Combined? Jury is out. 🤔
Yay or nay? Will you even dare to try the burger should it even make its way to Singapore?
