McDonald's Chocolate French Fries Don't Taste Disgusting

To be honest, I didn't think they would. Even if the sight of golden chips covered in white and dark chocolate doesn't look or sound all that appetising, these were not too bad. Recently in Japan, McDonald's released what it's calling "McFry Potato Chocolate Sauce".

They're a medium order of chips but with two kinds of chocolate sauce. The chocolate chips are priced at 330 yen ($4), while a normal order of medium chips is 270 yen ($3).

That makes for some very expensive chocolate sauce.

The white sauce tastes more sugary, while the other is more a milk chocolate.

Going into this, I didn't have much trepidation. Several potato chip brands in Japan have released chocolate covered chips in the past, and I've liked them fine. The salt makes for a fine balance with the chocolate's sweetness.

The same is true here. Salt and chocolate complement each other quite well. Since the chips are served hot, when you squirt on the sauce, the warm chips heat up the sauce. This causes the chocolate smell to become even stronger and noticeable.

But since McDonald's chips have a strong smell of their own, if you are sensitive to certain scents you might want to sit this one out.

As with chocolate covered potato chips, chocolate covered hot chips are greasy. French fries by themselves are greasy, so you might think that adding chocolate sauce would make this side dish seem heavy, but there isn't actually that much sauce.

So by the time you get to the end of your chocolate chips, you might wish McDonald's had included a bigger package of chocolate sauce.

Or maybe not.

    Been doing this for *years*. Dip your fries in your chocolate sundae. It's orgasmically good. Choccie thickshakes work just as well. Soooooo damn nice.

      I have a mate who always orders a sundae to go with any breakfast we get at Maccas. Apparently there's nothing quite like using a hash brown to scoop out your ice cream. Not for me, though.

        Can't say I've tried a hashbrown with my sundae, but a sundae on top of a plate of hotcakes, now there's a winner (except for your waistline).

          Hahaha I totally dip fries in the sundae too

        Do they sell hash brownies at Maccas??! ohh ... hashbrown ... ok :)

    I got the local Hungry Jacks to replace the bread in my Angry Whopper with two Krispy Kreme donuts which I supplied to them. Sweetness and spice works so well. Tasted wayyy better than I was expecting.

      I think I had a coronary reading that

        It's something I wanted to do at least once in my lifetime. Ticked it off.
