McDonald's Germany Introduces Cupcakes Named After NY Neighborhoods
File this under "Products Getting More Attention on NY Food Blogs Than In Their Own Countries." McDonald's Germany has just announced a line of cupcakes, and they've named each one after a New York neighborhood: the strawberry "Central Park," chocolate-chocolate "Chelsea," vanilla "Soho," and cappuccino "East Village." All right, we'll give them the EV as a coffee neighborhood, and as user ineedtacos pointed out, there's a Strawberry Fields in Central Park... but as for what exactly inspired the rest of these—well, your guess is as good as ours.
