Apparently love for sweet and sticky fried dough is universal. McDonald’s Japan announced that it is rolling out a brand new item: the McChurro, which is available either covered in cinnamon sugar or with pancake syrup for dipping. The churros roll out this week in McDonald’s restaurants across Japan for 159 yen ($1.56 US), and will only be available for a limited time.

According to Brand Eating, although the pastry is a deep-fried sweet stick of dough, it’s actually more similar to the Chinese treat, youtiao, than the traditional churro.Youtiao, aka the Chinese cruller, are deep-fried, usually savory pieces of dough that are popular snacks in China, and the churro is the sweeter Spanish variation on this. Let’s hope these Mc-creations come to America soon!
