"Considering this seems like it was created on a dare by someone who listens to my podcast, I'd almost have to eat one," a person wrote.
Some said that it sounded no more disgusting than other delicacies popular in other cultures.
"Hey, if there is a market for it, who am I to judge what people eat. It sounds utterly disgusting, but so does liver paté and it's a big hit in Denmark. And don't Americans dip their French fries in milkshakes, or am I just gullible?" a person commented.
Others questioned whether it was the name-brand Oreos included that McDonald's included in the burger, noting that the fine print on the advertisement pointed out that Spam is a registered trademark, but included no such reminder about the crumbled cookies included inside. That led many to believe that the menu item had knock-off cookies rather than the real thing.
But if the intention was to generate some buzz with the strange menu addition, then McDonald's appeared successful. The tweet sharing images of the food got some viral attention.
This is not the first time that McDonald's has added a bizarre offering. As The Inquisitr reported, the chain began offering a Quarter Pounder Scented Candle Pack that allowed fans of the famed burger to get a whiff of the product within their homes. In announcing the candles, the company said that they wanted to give people a "tangible way to publicly display their affection for the hot and deliciously juicy 100% fresh beef Quarter Pounder."
The company also launched a line of couples mittens, a 2020 calendar, and a locket all devoted to the quarter pounder.
