Japan has it all. Geishas, sushi, for breakfast, hot springs, Tokyo and now, chocolate covered fries to go with your Big Mac.
Following in the footsteps of other strange items served at McDonald’s in Japan, fries drenched in chocolate sauce will begin being served in Japanese Macdonalds’ starting this Jan. 26.
The treat is being dubbed, The McChoco Potato, and it will consist of french fries covered in chocolate sauce and white milk sauce.
According to a statement from the restaurant, “The combination creates a wonderful salty and sweet harmonious taste.”
Are they having political turmoil over there? Is this an attempt to unite the country, somehow? If it is, just to note, maybe this is something we could use over here, in the west.
I don’t know how you could unite, say, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in one simple fast food side dish, but I’m putting out the challenge.
A report on USAtoday.com states that this isn’t the first time McDonald’s has gone creative with their fried potatoes in Asia. The land of the rising sun also introduced Shaka Shaka Potato fries to citizens, which were fries covered with cheese sauce or bacon, in the past.
FYI, one small order of fries (71 g) from the fast food giant comes in at 229 calories, and a large will run you 498 calories. It’s hard to say how far adding chocolate sauce and milk sauce will make that total move, but it’s obvious it has only one way to go, and that’s up.
