In the latest addition to a recent wave of bizarre fast food offerings, McDonald’s is testing out a limited run of chocolate-covered french fries.
Currently only sold in Japanese restaurants, the company’s new “McChoco Potatoes” are drizzled in both cacao-flavored milk and white chocolate sauce. The mixture supposedly creates a unique mixture of flavors that will have you coming back for more.
“Customers will find McChoco Potatoes enjoyable for different occasions, as it also makes for a great dessert. The combination creates a wonderful salty and sweet harmonious taste,” the company said in a press release.
McDonald’s regularly tests new products in the Japanese market before expanding them out to the global market. So far, the fast food chain says they have no plans to bring the strange combo to the U.S. In the past, the company has tested out other side items, including macaroni and cheese, mozzarella sticks and mashed potatoes. McDonald’s also regularly adds locale-specific items, including lobster rolls in Canada and McCrab sandwich in the Delmarva peninsula on the East coast.
It’s probably for the best that the U.S. has been spared from chocolate-covered fries, since we’re all still recovering from Burger King’s rather controversial black-bun burger.
