Called "Japanese Style French Fries Candied Sweet Potato Flavour", the fries come with a special sweet sauce with black sesame that sound remind folks of, well, candied sweet potatoes.

In Japanese, candied sweet potatoes are literally "university potatoes" (大学芋), and the reason for that, Just One Cookbook explains, might be because the dish was popular with Japanese university students during the early 1900s. 

According to Entabe and Walker Plus, the fries launch on February in Japan for a limited time only.

    I call gripe - I mean:

    1. Its not here
    2. The author hasn't tried them (no personal experience)
    3. Its not even an interesting dish/food? - they seem to be normal fries (maybe slightly different factory-made composition) with a "special sauce". How many of these are there in the world? We have 'loaded' fries.

    Sorry for gripe - just seems like free advertisement, I clicked it and came here to read about how its really cool because of X - only there is no X.
