Four lucky McDonald’s restaurants in the South Bay part of California have started selling “Gilroy Garlic Fries.”
The latest McDonald’s foray into cheesy garlic fries is not their first, but it’s certainly better than the previous effort we reported on back in 2014.
This new flavor of McDonald’s fries utilize a purée made with garlic sourced from Gilroy, California — allegedly “the Garlic Capital of the world.” Each order of the new fries are made-to-order, with employees tossing French fries, chopped Gilroy garlic, olive oil, parmesan cheese, parsley and a pinch of salt in stainless steel bowls. Nice touch making them “fresh” McDonald’s, I see you.
McDonald’s cites garlic as a “regional” flavor, which in simple-speak means they have trivialized and compartmentalized their customer’s palates into people who eat meat + potatoes, and those ethnic folk who might dare live on the bleeding edge of culture and would accept garlic on fries. God Bless us accepting ethnic folk being accepting of regional flavors.
The Golden Arches mentioned that if customer feedback is positive, the Garlic Gilroy Fries will become available at nearly 250 McDonald’s restaurants across San Francisco come August this year.
