Canada, Australia, and Spain won’t be the only places to sell bacon cheese fries. McDonald’s is rolling out bacon cheese fries across the US as well. But, according to a McDonald’s employee, you can’t indulge in these cheesy bacon fries till next year. Oh, but it’s December now, which means the next year is just around the corner. Heh! 2019’s fries, here we come!
The chain has tested different versions of bacon cheese fries in the US for years, including a limited-time offer of Loaded Bacon and Cheese Basket of Fries in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, central West Virginia, southeast Ohio, and eastern Kentucky in 2017.
According to one of the McDonald’s employees who spoke for Business Insider, he wouldn’t explicitly confirm the news, however, he gave a hint about the roll-out.
“I’m afraid I’ll have to provide a cheesy no comment,” the McDonald’s representative said. “At this moment, our kitchens are bacon-ing something together. But we’re not yet ready to share the gouda news.”
The McDonald’s employee also revealed that the fries would use a new type of bacon that is currently not found in the kitchens.
Leaked photos obtained by Business Insider, show some luscious fries topped with bacon, whose taste and smell you can sense without even having to actually eat them beforehand.
There may be some pressure triggered from Wendy’s, which is also selling popular bacon cheese fries.
However, one can’t deny the worldwide popularity and all the delicious deals of McDonald’s. But, there are still items from the menu that McDonald’s sells internationally but aren’t available in every country.
Nevertheless, the fast food company started testing some of those dishes at 50 South Florida locations. Some of the dishes include the Grand McExtreme Bacon Burger from Spain, topped with Gouda cheese, applewood smoked bacon, onions, and McBacon sauce.
The list also includes dishes from Malaysia, such as BBQ McShaker Fries, Hong Kong with their McSpicy Chicken sandwich, and the Netherlands with Stroopwafel McFlurry.
As for the to-be-launched fries, we will be waiting with eagerness! 😍
