McDonald's does fries, and they do them well as far as fast food goes. The popular fast-food chain is now offering up curly fries in the Philippines for a limited time, with Americans around the country asking, why not us?
The popular "Twister Fries" is a seasonal staple over there in the Phillipeans and they are offering the salty snack for only three weeks to increase its popularity. They cost a la carte for $1.43 or P60.
Fast food restaurants often test menu items on small groups before making them available in places like the U.S. The Twister Fries in the Philippines are lightly seasoned rings of goodness. It is unclear if McDonald's will be releasing any sort of curly fry in the U.S. but people do sure hope so, voicing their over-the-top enthusiasm on Twitter:
The lucky crew in the Philippines is also seemingly overjoyed:
The short bursts of curly fries and other items really does create a buzz. Similar outcries of joy can be seen yearly when the McRib -a BBQ pork sandwich--comes back for a short time yearly.
Other fast food chains are tweaking menu items as well and adding new additions. Burger King is adding healthier offerings such as sweet potato fries and unique additions like frozen lemonade. McDonald's remains the tried and tested chain of choice for most, with a claim of 49.5 percent of the market share.
