McDonald’s Japan said it will start selling “McChoco Potatoes” — fries with a drizzle of white and milk chocolate — Jan. 26.
CHICAGO — McDonald’s has unveiled chocolate-covered french fries, but you’ll have to fly around the world to get them.
McDonald’s Japan said it will start selling “McChoco Potatoes” — fries with a drizzle of white and milk chocolate — Jan. 26. They will be available through mid-February for about $2.80, or 50 cents as an upgrade in a value meal.
McDonald’s Japan has previously offered savory toppings for its french fries, including cheese sauce with bacon-flavored crumbles.
There’s no word on whether the fries will come to the U.S. any time soon, but it’s unlikely. Menus vary widely around the world, and there are only five items that are on every global menu of the Chicago-area giant: Big Mac, chicken nuggets, hamburger, cheeseburger and (plain) fries. So for now you’ll still have to buy a milkshake to dip your fries in.
