McD's testing DIY-seasoned fries. They have my attention.

Nice move!  I'd already be more than down for seasoned McD's fries, but having you do it yourself is a nice old-fashioned touch.  And interactivity always makes food more fun!

    Shake shake fries are very popular overseas.

    Shake shake bag...




    Shake seasonings that exist around the world...

    Seaweed is suprisingly good...



    Citrus Thai...



    Hot & Spicy is more mild than Citrus Thai...



    Curry...




    Post-shake...

    A well-meaning person at work gave me two ten-dollar McDonald's gift cards (for a Passover gift, no less). I really do not go to McDonald's ever. I gave one to my nearest and dearest for emergencies, but maybe I'll try these fries and an iced tea with the other. No idea how much the fries would cost. Maybe I'll photograph the experience and post it!

    The US testing is in Stockton CA & it's free through tomorrow.

    My shake shake fries were @ McDonald's worldwide convention.

    Didn't Burger King do this for a limited time 10 years or so ago?  I seem to vaguely remember them.

    Yes BK had a similar concept in 2002 called shake 'em up fries.

    Shake Shake fries are very popular throughout the rest of he world. It makes a great deal of sense to offer them here.

    Happy Piña is a pineapple spear & the extra shake after the fries were covered worked well.


    McMacarons are another very popular item overseas...



    Made by Ladurée for McD.

    I'd go for the curry fries, a local Irish pub makes them and the crispy fries and curry flavor is a great combination.

    Laduree??  Seriously!!  Wow.  
     
    That pineapple thing reminds me of something I've seen elsewhere on this site where fruit has chili powder on it (I think).
     
    I wish they'd float some of these items in the U.S. 
     
    Sounds like Burger King was ahead of its time on the seasoned fries.

    Big disappointment Saturday... was on a tight schedule, had to eat, so I went to McD's and got some McNuggets. They no longer carry the hot mustard sauce. What the...? Makes me not want to bother with the seasoned fries ever.

    I can relate.  Every time I find a menu item or food product that I really like, it's discontinued.  It's the story of my foodie life.

    They've had the hot mustard since McNuggets were "born", I can't believe they'd get rid of it at this point. I had to put jalapeno mustard in the honey mustard to fix it up. :p

    I did the same thing recently.....I almost backed out of the drive through, when I heard "We don't carry Hot Mustard Sauce anymore"...unbelievable. The one thing I really, really liked at McDonald's and now it's gone.
     
    I would get a couple with anything I ordered, loved to dip my fries in the Hot Mustard Sauce, but it was best with McNugget's...but I'll try these fries if they make to my local Mickey Dees.
