McDonalds has reached a stage where business is tough and they need to entice people to come more often back to the fast food enterprise. So, they have this new idea. Chocolate-covered fries.
It's hard for me to imagine such a 'treat'. It's loaded with sugar, sodium, and various preservatives.
About thirty years ago, I had to ride along on some stupid tour bus to Switzerland. The package deal included one evening at a Swiss authentic dinner.....which had a fondue 3-course dinner. The last fondue.....was the chocolate deal....where you took some sweet bread and dipped it into a hot chocolate sauce deal over a fire. At the time, the chocolate sauce reminded me of melted M and M's.
What the business reports say is that it's only a 'test' and might only be a one-time production item. I looked at the picture....it wasn't a completely covered fry with chocolate.....it simply had a ketchup-like stream over a pile of fries.
Presently, McDonalds is worried. The business boom of 1980s is gone. People got worried about nutrition, fatty foods, and hygiene. They need a gimmick...something to return back to the glory days, and chocolate covered fries....seems to be it.
