McDonald’s is known for trying out wacky changes to their food items at their international locations so there isn't much surprise that the fast-food giant is introducing Halloween Witch Fries to their menu. Just in time for the costumed-themed day, the new item will be available in Japan starting Wednesday until the end of the month, Brand Eating reported.
The themed-menu item will feature the chain’s popular french fries drizzled with chocolate and purple sweet potato sauces offering a sweet and savory flavoring. Available at locations throughout the country, the new fries will cost 330 yen ($3.19). Japan residents also have the opportunity to upgrade their value meals to Halloween Witch Fries for an additional cost of $0.58.
This is not the first time McDonald’s has added a Halloween themed item to their menu. Back in September, the restaurant chain added pumpkin-flavored french fries to their Japan menus. The fries which come with “pumpkin and choco sauce” will be available until Oct. 31.
Earlier this year, McDonald’s added the “McChoco Potato” to their food roster which started the flavored fries trend at the restaurant. During its brief time on the menu, the fries were served covered in cacao and white milk chocolate sauces.
Back in 2014, the Japan locations temporarily added a squid ink burger and Pumpkin Oreo McFlurry to their menus. The burger consisted of two beef patties topped with cheddar cheese, crispy fried onions, orange chipotle sauce and black sesame seed buns. The McFlurry included its typical ingredients of soft serve vanilla ice cream and Oreo cookies but pumpkin sauce was added to the dessert turning it slightly orange.
In other locations like Australia, McDonald’s has topped fries with guacamole, cheese, and bacon. The Singapore restaurants briefly introduced truffle fries to their menus however, some customers complained that the dish was “too salty.”
