We knew there were some clowns working at McDonald’s but the fast food giant’s latest product really is an edible abomination.
Hailed as a new ‘innovation’ and ‘a surprising and unique menu item’, here comes the McChoco Potato; essentially fries drizzled with chocolate sauce.
Once the fries are ordered, diners (yes, we know the seats are bolted but it still classifies as a restaurant) will also get a choice of white or milk chocolate to trickle over their golden strips of potato, which McDonald’s claims makes for a “wonderful salty and sweet harmonious taste”.
We get it. Sometimes you want sweet, sometimes you want savoury, but surely anyone with a single IQ point would do the entirely normal thing of wolfing their fries, washing it down with a large soft drink and then finishing with the greatest dessert of them all: the McFlurry.
Launching in Japan (obviously), there's no word on whether this unholy matrimony of chocolate and fries will ever reach these shores. And that's probably for the best.
