Everyone loves McDonald’s french fries…and everyone loves chocolate, right? So why not combine the two?!
Yes, you read that right. McDonald’s is about to introduce a new chocolate-covered version of their beloved french fries. But if you want to sample this new crazy treat you’ll have to travel a bit because, at least for now, they will only be available in Japan.
On Tuesday, McDonald’s Japan announced that they will be introducing the new McChoco Potato.
“Japanese customers can now enjoy an ideal combination of McDonald’s French fries drizzled with two types of chocolate sauces – chocolate with cacao flavor and white milk chocolate. 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.”
This isn’t the first time McDonald’s Japan has offered different options for toppings on their famous fries. Previously they have also offered additions like cheese sauce and bacon, which they called their Shaka Shaka Potato fries. And based on the success of that promotion, they have very high hopes for this new chocolate combo.
The McChoco Potato will be available at participating McDonald’s all across Japan beginning on January 26.
As for me, I can’t decide if these new chocolate covered fries sound good or just plain gross. I mean, I do love both chocolate and the fries…I’m just not sure about eating them in the same bite. My 14-year-old nephew tells me that McDonald’s fries are delicious dipped in a chocolate milkshake, so maybe they’re on to something…who knows?
What do you think? Sound good? Or not so much?
