McDonald’s Will Roll Out Cheesy Bacon Fries In Early 2019, Here Are Leaked Photos And Reviews
Before you put your New Year’s resolution about getting in shape to paper, you may want to consider bumping that goal to 2020 because McDonald’s has something to announce.
The fast-food chain is rolling out cheesy bacon fries across the United States in early 2019. According to Business Insider, some stores have already started adding the “loaded bacon fry station” to their point of sales systems.
A McDonald’s representative got real punny in an email to Business Insider on Friday:
“I’m afraid I’ll have to provide a cheesy no comment. At this moment, our kitchens are bacon-ing something together. But we’re not yet ready to share the gouda news.”
Nation’s Restaurant News reported that test locations in Hawaii and Northern California began selling cheesy bacon fries, which reportedly cost between $3.50 – $3.75, in November. Customers of those locations have begun to leak photos of the menu offering. One Instagram user “highly recommends” the cheesy fries, adding that they are reminiscent of In-N-Out’s poutine fries. Another user rated the fries a 7 out of 10.
The folks at Mercury News tried the cheesy fries when they were made available in test markets. The reviews were positive:
McDonald’s gets bonus points for not pouring nacho cheese on top of the fries. It’s a cheddar cheese sauce, a nice departure from the stuff at sporting events. And the bacon pieces were pleasantly chewy and tasty. You don’t get a ton of cheese, but that may be a good thing: When McDonald’s served garlic fries, the sauce made the potatoes a little soggy. These stayed crisper for longer.
Fans of nachos and “smothered” fries should give these a try.
