We already knew that foreign fast food joints were privy to plenty of goods that we in the good old U. S. of A. can only lust after via Instagram. Take McDonald’s spring-ready Sakura McFloat, for instance, or these drool-worthy dessert fries, served up only in Japan.
There’s one item on McD’s overseas menus, however, that we simply can’t forgive: CURLY FRIES. That’s right, folks: While you’re over here, chewing on those lame, old-school straight and salty munchies, your counterparts in Singapore and the Philippines are chowing down on what are known as “Twister Fries” — the fancier, turnt-up version of the OG staple. Recently resurrected as part of the chain’s Prosperity food line-up (which also includes a burger or a chicken burger), the fries have been a customer favorite since they were reportedly launched back in 2015.
We don’t know about you, but we NEED these in our lives, like, yesterday — particularly in St. Joseph, Missouri, where all-you-can-eat fries are a thing.
Yes, yes, we know that at the end of the day, it all boils down to the same deep-fried potato, but somehow, curly fries are just BETTER, you know?
Sigh. If you’ll excuse us, we’re off to gorge our sad selves with (what else!?) McDonald’s plain old regular fries.
Are you bummed we’ve been missing out on French fry heaven? Share over @BritandCo.
