McDonalds has just launched a Nutella burger - but you'll have to travel to Italy to get your hands on one.

The 'Sweety con Nutella' sees a thick wedge of the popular hazelnut spread sandwiched between two of the fast food giants buns.

Thankfully, while they look like a regular burger, they do not contain any meat.

It even comes in a signature burger box, just like a Big Mac or a Quarter Pounder.

The new product will be available in the chain's cafes, but not at the hot food counters.

It was announced on their Facebook page on Thursday with the message: "A soft sweetness has arrived that you will not be able to resist.

You'll have to travel to Italy to get it... (McDonald's) (McDonald's)

"Try Sweety with Nutella now: soft bread with a creamy, indulgent centre."

It was shared more than 50,000 times and has had more than 30,000 likes.

Also on the menu in Italy is a burger featuring delicious pecorino cheese - a far cry from the typical burger topping on these shores.

They also dish up tiramisu alongside the regular apple pie and McFlurries that we know and love.

The chain is always experimenting with new lines - this month it announced two tweaks to the Big Mac.

The first is a trimmed down Mac Jr, and an extra large Grand Mac.

It gets even crazier in Asia, where a deep fried katsu burger and black bun burger are on the menu.
