Here’s a List of McDonald’s Most Memorable Fries Around the World—Including Our Creamy Truffle Shake Shake Fries

May 11, 2017

The magic of McDonald’s signature golden, wondrous World Famous Fries are consistently sought after, no matter where you are in the world. People always talk about the Big Mac, but we think there’s nothing more synonymous with the golden arches than this snack. No wonder then, that among the pantheon of crazy offerings McDonald’s adds to their menus worldwide (everyone remember that black bun burger?), it seems as if fries are the item most played around with. In an ode to McDonald’s most recognizable item, we’ve listed a bunch of most memorable riffs on the tater, including one recently launched in Manila.

Poutine (Canada)

We’ve been coveting this Canadian staple since forever. It sounds like overkill, but this Canadian tradition brings together fries, light brown gravy, and cheese curds. Online chatter says that McDonald’s version comes close to the real thing, with the cheese curds as authentic as any you’ll get in Canada.

McChoco Fries/Choco Pumpkin Fries (Japan)

Japan seems to be the place to get the wildest fast food concoctions. Brands over there seem to be in constant competition to one-up the other’s previous insane recipe. One of McDonald’s most controversial ideas in Japan came in the form of a dessert version of french fries—one was topped with melted milk and white chocolate, while a Halloween edition added sweet pumpkin to the mix. Kooky, maybe, but it sold incredibly well in the region.

Honey Butter French Fries (South Korea)

Honey butter might be one of the best flavor inventions to come out of Korea. While they’re often known for spice, this combo has become such a cult favorite, that it has graced everything from fried chicken, to almonds, to even ice cream. McDonald’s has officially joined the craze, drizzling the salty-sweet, sticky sauce on their fries, creating a delicious mess.

Sweet Chilli and Sour Cream Loaded Fries (Australia)

What makes these fries awesome is the pairing: sweet chilli gives bursts of heat and some pretty complex sugariness, while sour cream cools things off and adds tartness to shake things up. It basically addresses all your five tastebuds in one pack of McDonald’s fries, and is one of the best things on their menu down under.

Creamy Truffle Shake Shake Fries (Philippines)

While our Shake Shake fries flavors are always pretty delicious, we’ve never had one that’s gone as far left-field as the new Creamy Truffle. Truffle is seen as an incredibly high-end ingredient, which makes this one of our most intriguing arrivals yet. The taste of the earthy ingredient can often intimidate most, but when done well, it basically makes anything better in an instant. And McDonald’s Shake Shake Fries does just that—satisfies our cravings for anything truffle and made it even better with its creaminess.

McDonald’s Shake Shake Fries are now available across all branches in the Philippines for a limited time only. Get your Creamy Truffle Fix for only P65.
