Very soon, when you walk into a McDonald’s in Japan you will be able to purchase what has to be the largest size fries on the planet. It’s called the Mega Potato and replaces the also huge but not quite as insane Share Potato. Just how big is it? You get two large size fries in one container. You’d need about a dozen of those little ketchup cups to finish off this monster!
See another huge image after the break…
Pop art on McDonald’s french fry boxes? You have to admit that’s clever. Artist Ben Frost uses acrylics to dress up the packaging with superheroes, characters from The Simpsons, manga, and more. Looking at the above image of Batman makes me wonder if he likes french fries.
See more after the break.
For a limited time starting on April 24, McDonald’s locations in Japan will be giving away these “potato holders” to anyone who orders a value meal. The product is made to look like a regular McDonald’s fry container and is touted as a great way to eat fries while riding in a car or bus, or on a bike. However, with the possibility of delicious, fat and salt soaked food porn tempting your eyeballs, the company deemed it necessary to advise people to “refrain from eating and drinking while driving.”
Skylanders Happy Meals have arrived at McDonald’s! The promotion runs from April 11th to May 2nd and each box comes with a $10 coupon good towards a Skylanders Giants starter kit. There are nine toys to collect in all.
Pictures after the break and I’ll see you at Mickey D’s!
If you crave two McDonald’s hamburger patties topped with two sausages on one bun, you have the options of creating a frankenburger or hopping a plane to China, where this Sausage Double Beef Burger is now available, but possibly for a limited time only.
They say you learn something new every day, and today that something is this utterly useless tidbit: McDonald’s has official names for McNugget shapes.
Business Insider recently visited the McDonald’s headquarters in Oak Brook, Ill., and sat in on a quality testing session, where nuggets were being graded by chicken pros from suppliers like Tyson.
The McDonald’s sensory team explained that Chicken McNuggets have four distinct shapes and in order to have a chance to meet the McDonald’s “Gold Standard” for quality, they have to match them as perfectly as possible.
As you can see from the photo above, those shapes are ball, bone, bell, and boot (in Canada, the “bone” is officially a “bow-tie”). Although not mentioned in the list, readers of our site know that there is also the less occasional zombie and founding father.
Apparently McDonald’s is offering a bacon addition to anything on the menu for an extra .49, so this was bound to happen. I’m sure people have already stirred it into their drinks and broken it up into their apple dipper caramel sauce.
Because those two fast food clowns weren’t scary enough already.
Up until now, you may have thought that McDonald’s sold “fries” that were actually golden strips of preservatives, fat and salt that are impervious to decomposition. However, McDonald’s Canada wants to dispel those rumors by showing customers the process by which they’re made. Hit the jump to see for yourself, and pay special attention to how they basically tell customers to quit bitching about too much salt… it’s subtly at its best.
