New York (CNN Business) – McDonald’s is bringing some international menu items to the United States.

The chain will start selling the Stroopwafel McFlurry, the Grand McExtreme Bacon Burger, the Tomato Mozzarella Chicken Sandwich and Cheesy Bacon Fries at participating McDonald’s locations nationwide starting June 5. The company announced the limited-time promotion on Wednesday.

McDonald’s four new international menu items create an easy way for McDonald’s to put an exciting spin on its core foods. Restaurant chains use limited-time offers to create buzz around their products, and give people a reason to come into stores.

Although the new items — which are from the Netherlands, Spain, Canada and Australia — may seem unfamiliar, they’re actually not that different from what McDonald’s already serves, noted Sam Oches, editorial director of Food News Media at QSR magazine.
