McDonald’s Japan Unveils European Burgers Line With Kiki’s Delivery Service

The three flavors are: beef patty burger with german potatoes, juicy peperoncino hot chicken burger, and bouillabaisse-style shrimp burger. There is a note underneath the peperoncino chicken burger that those who aren’t good at eating spicy food should be wary when ordering this one. As well, the bouillabaisse-style shrimp burger will not be available in Fukuoka or Saga.

McDonald’s first teased these burgers with two short animations on June 18, 2024. Though not actually Kiki, it featured a little girl witch who has a striking resemblance to the Studio Ghibli character flying through the sky and running through a market. Like Kiki, she had a little black cat with her, as well as dressed in black and red. The marketing likely used her for these burgers due to the Swedish aesthetic of the town Kiki lived in. Granted, these burgers seem to use flavors from German, Italian, and French cuisine.

The European burgers will be available for a limited time in McDonald’s Japan from June 26, 2024.
