Big Mac

As America's car culture spread abroad, the hamburger followed. McDonald's has opened restaurants in 119 countries and serves 52 million people daily; its appeal is inextricably bound up with the appeal of America.
"If we eat hamburgers and potatoes for 1,000 years, we will become taller, our skin will become whiter and our hair blonder," declared the enthusiastic boss of McDonald's in Japan when the first Big Mac was served there 36 years ago.
