McDonald’s Curly Fries: They Exist, But Only If You Live Here
[ Life]

McDonald’s–like many other fast food restaurants–likes to test things out before they start making them available to the general public. Part of the reason they make things available in specific stores is that certain foods are proven to do better in certain parts of the country, or the world. For instance, the big wigs in charge of food placement know they can’t serve beef at their India locations, so they are constantly adding things to the menu in order to give their customers more choices. That’s how the Chicken Maharaja-Mac was born.

But sometimes, they come up with an idea so delicious and so simple, it’s totally unfair when we learn they’re serving it in a different location. That’s the deal with the news today that stores in the Philippines are serving curly fries. Sure, we all know and love McDonald’s golden sticks of awesome, but seriously, who doesn’t love curly fries? Do they think they wouldn’t do well here?

Whatever the reason, it doesn’t look like they’ll be offering them in the states anytime soon. In fact, they’re only being offered in the Philippines for a limited time of about three weeks; I suppose Twister Fries are to Filipinos as the McRib is to Americans.

  • mike

    To the IDIOT that wrote this article: No it isn’t the same as the McRib is to America….The reason the McRib is limited is because of cost,supply, and demand…..Pork prices would soar if it were a full time item on the menu, and become much too costly to keep it on the menu…They already tried it….Atleast get your facts straight before you get paid to write something….

    • ben

      “Pork prices would soar” LMAO!

  • Penemuel

    We have had McDonald’s curly fries here in the Philippines for close to two decades now..
    At times they take it out, then they bring it back, depending on the demand for it.

  • Jason

    I’ve had these at the Oak Brook, IL testing McDonald’s and they are the best curly fries I’ve ever had. Though I’ve also had McDonald’s pizza, and that wasn’t so great.

  • dale monroe

    Any type of fried fries are bad for you so always eat in moderation but curly fries, they taste good but really not so good for you.

  • “Turtle”

    What ‘s next?!

  • Wendy

    They can keep ‘em. I hate curly fries. They’re usually battered in some way, making them taste way more greasy than regular fries. The regular variety are guilty pleasure enough, thanks.

  • steve e.

    Crinkle cut fries are the best but McDonald’s won’t have those until the 23rd century. Never be fooled by predictions for technological breakthroughs. They’re absolute bunk. Life proceeds at a glacial pace. We’re in the hands of the Philistines.

    • steve e.

      Not the Phillipines.

  • Dave

    “Pork prices would soar.” He obviously has the same deep understanding of macroeconomics as Obama.

  • benjamin

    I am from the Philippines and the Twister Fries of McDonald’s have been around for years. Like the McRib, it comes out seasonally. McDonald’s Philippines also serve McSpaghetti, Longanisa Meal (Local sausage with fried eggs and rice), McChicken (Fried Chicken served with rice and gravy) to name a few.

    • J

      Murder-,noun,the unlawful killing of one HUMAN by another, esp. with forethought or malice.(American Heritage Dictionary) Killing an animal to eat(not wantonly killing for cruelty’s sake)
      does not constitute a murder. By the way, you might want to work on your people skills. People are less interested in hearing what you have to say or looking at your point of view if you are insulting them.
