A McDonald's Menu from the US

My neighbors recently brought back a McDonald's menu from the US. Some of the items are probably unfamiliar to Taiwanese so I listed them below. Menu item is in bold.

Quarter Pounder with Cheese: basically a cheeseburger. (1 quarter pound = 114 grams, before cooking)

Premium Chicken Club Sandwich: a club sandwich usually has 3 slices of bread with turkey, lettuce, bacon, and mayonnaise in between.

Premium Chicken Ranch BLT Sandwich (Ranch refers to a sauce that is similar to Ranch Dressing. BLT = Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato)

Ranch Snack Wrap: crispy chicken, cheddar jack cheese, lettuce and ranch sauce wrapped in a soft flour tortilla.
