Miami in Patty Form

Ever wonder what our city would taste like if it were distilled down into hamburger form? According to European McDonald's, it would be a "100% beef patty, streaky bacon, Monterey Jack cheese, crisp lettuce, onion, and a cheese sauce all on a chili-and-chive-topped sesame bun." We're really not sure what any of these ingredients have to do with Miami, but we're just glad they didn't use Flamingo meat, as the ad had us originally thinking. The Miami Melt is (best as we can tell -- we don't speak Swedish) available in Scandinavia as part of a "Great Tastes of America" campaign, because regular burgers and fries apparently weren't American enough.
