It already has "world famous" French fries coveted by many around the globe in its locations worldwide, but now McDonald's has a new addition in potato cuisine: curly fries. But where on Earth can one get these corkscrew concoctions known as "Twister Fries?"
According to Vibe, those curly Twister Fries are only available in the Philippines, where many call the fast food chain "McDo." But the fries are only available for a limited time, the magazine reported, costing about $1.43 in U.S. dollars or P60. Twister Fries were added to the menu on Aug. 1, according to the McDo Facebook page, and will be available for purchase for three weeks throughout the Philippines.
"It's time to get twisted again," McDo wrote. "The famous McDonald's Twister Fries is definitely back! Prioritize 'em because they're only available for the next THREE WEEKS!"
The limited offer joins the ranks of other popular, and seasonal, McDonald's favorites, like the Shamrock Shake, McBites and the McRib sandwich, all limited menu items.
But it appears in the Philippines, the curly fries have sprouted a cult following, evident on the Facebook page that has many people begging the Twister Fries not be limited edition.
"Twister Fries, please Don't GO! Like and share this page guys!" Facebook user Coy Caballes wrote.
In 2008, the fast food chain switched over to cook the fries in canola-based zero-trans-fat cooking oil, but in a way so that the healthier cooking method wouldn't compromise its signature taste.
