Makku Choco Poteto... McChoco Potato... French fries with chocolate sauce at McDonald's Japan.



"Without a doubt, the sauce was the prominent flavour, but with the savoury note, it didn’t taste like a dessert.... Whatever the case, we couldn’t stop putting fistfuls into our mouths, so it was definitely a winning combination!"

I'll reserve judgment until I've tried a concoction like that. McDonalds fries are excellent but I'm assuming the chocolate sauce they'd use would be overly sweet.

What about chocolate covered fried chicken? We passed "peak bacon" a while back, but maybe we're about to go into "peak chocolate".

Separately, McDonalds had to limit customers to one small packet of fries each as labor disputes at U.S. West Coast ports interfered with shipments.

This is why we can't have nice things.

Chicken mole is not a new idea.

Legitimizes the ancient fast food hack of dipping your fries in your shake.

I've heard of chocolate covered potato chips, so this makes sense, particularly with McDonald's fries being nice and crispy.

Five Guys fries suck.

Try the McSurfNTurf hack. Take the top bun off a Filet O' Fish, and the bottom bun of a Cheeseburger. But the rest together and enjoy.

But, they make up for it with such huge (or uuuge) portions

The close-up photo on the freeze-frame looks like the aftermath of a Bukkake Party that was crashed by someone who couldn't control their bowels.

If you can't control your bowels it is best to skip the Bukkake Party and wait for another, once the stomach problems have settled.

Patience: there will always be another Bukkake Party.

Bon Appétit.


I am Laslo.

Pssst, don't tell anybody, but people will never stop liking sweet, greasy, and salty food. It must be hardwired. Nobody ever went broke providing it.

In college, we'd go to a local restaurant, order the chocolate malts and a basket of fries, and then dip our fries into our shakes. Heaven.

These delicious fried potaters are going to kill us all, deliciously.

During my wifes first pregnancy, her big craving was fries with caramel sauce. Gobs of it. Had to be McDonald's fries, this was back when they were still fried with beef tallow.

Static Ping said...

Why not. Fries with mayo works too, much to my surprise. Dutch mayo is different than American mayo though.

My dearly departed mom's french fry hack? Honey. Dip those fries in honey. Try it sometime.

Danno said...

Just the thought. Eww!

I lived and worked in Japan for a couple of years about 25 years ago. The Japanese were then very much into American fast food joints (BTW, "Ma-ca-du-na-doh is the correct Japanese pronunciation of McDonald's - they have a lot of trouble pronouncing consanants back-to-back and just add in some vowels to make it work for them,)but they usually had their own spin on the menu items. Personally, I had the most problem with their Pizza Hut pizza - something about octopus and fish balogna toppings and all the pickeled vegetables. They were also into Dunkin Donuts big time and KFC, but those were more traditional. Still, they also came up with some variations of American standards that grew on me. Not surprising to me that they would add chocolate to french fries as they love both.

The Japanese often combine sweets and savories. (Just check out their many varieties of Kit Kat bars!)

Deidre: Wendy's chocolate frosty + fries was how I had it. Pretty good even w/o a real chocolate malt.

Another dining custom I find off-putting: I learned on a visit to Florida that Cubans sprinkle sugar over black beans. Not this diner. For hearty bean consumption I prefer borracho beans liberally strewn with bacon.

Many years ago, a then-young couple I knew went to Japan for a vacation, and after a couple of days in Tokyo they went out into the country on their own, not part of a tour. They had a wonderful time, thought the Japanese were really great, but the big problem was: They couldn't find anything to eat! Being normal Americans, they didn't eat raw octopus, or raw fish, or unrecognizable veggies with strings hanging off, and so forth. After five or six days, when they returned to Tokyo, they were practically starving, and they headed right for McDonalds. Those Big Macs were a life-saver!

This problem of pickiness about food is why our mother insisted when we were kids that we learn to eat everything and not complain. This is a useful lesson. We are well equipped to survive in odd places, and socialize with anyone. Also, probably, survive food shortages during global wars.
A difficult lesson to pass on. Worked a bit with my daughter until she turned vegetarian, maybe in self defense.

When will the Canadians get off their lazy azzes and get us poutine at Mickey D's?

JAORE said...

Still waiting for poutine at Mickey D's. C'mon Canada. You can DO this!
