We’ll try any new McDonald’s item at least once. Gotta give it that fair shake, right?
McDonald’s Japan is tapping into the French fry audience with new “college potato” fries called daigaku imo French fries, reports Rocket News 24.
The fast food chain drew inspiration from a classic Japanese comfort dish, daigaku imo (college potato), a sweet potato snack that is paired with a sweet sauce. Legend has it, the snack got its name from poor college students seeking a cheap way to satiate their hunger pangs.
McDonald’s new fries are topped with a thick honey sesame sauce and topped with black sesame seeds. Paired with the saltiness of the fries, this could be a killer addition.
You can find the new fries at participating McDonald’s locations in Japan beginning Feb. 15, where they’ll be on the menu for a limited time.
