McChoco Potatoes anyone?
McDonalds has introduced a very weird new dish in Japan that has left people wondering whether they should try this or not? The dish is called McChoco Potatoes, basically McDonalds fries with milk and white chocolate drizzled over them.
A McDonald’s spokesman said: ‘Customers will find McChoco Potatoes enjoyable for different occasions, as it also makes for a great dessert.
‘The combination creates a wonderful salty and sweet harmonious taste. This limited-time menu item is a creative way of enjoying McDonald’s delicious French fries.’
These new dishes, strangely delicious as they sound, you can imagine are pretty unhealthy for you. Just one portion of the famous fries contains 337 kcal and 22 grams of fat. A Big Mac has 508 kcals and 25 grams of fat. The calories start adding up, and that is before they start to drizzle melted chocolate all over your chips! But as part of a balanced diet then yeah why not? The Great British public do have a sweet tooth for choccy treats but on a bed of potato? We will have to wait and see.
Lucy from the YJA Newsroom said, “I think that they look a very nice combination and I hope that they come to England.” Tash from the YJA team said, “They look horrible and I don’t think I want to try them.”
So the McChoco Potatoes, interesting idea but will we see them in our local Maccy D’s anytime soon? Could they become one of your Mcfavourites? Chips covered in chocolate, mmmn I wonder what they do actually taste like?
