McDonald's invents the "Frork", a French fry fork, to pitch new sandwiches

McDonald's invents the

While we do not particularly like this idea, we do like two things about this video McDonald's made to announce the idea. It's the ideal (ish) utensil for picking up any premium toppings that may fall out of our new Signature Crafted Recipes burgers and chicken sandwiches. USA Today shares that the first 100 callers will receive a frork and the first 5,000 will recipe a coupon for a Signature Crafted Recipe sandwich.

Now, however, McDonald's has come up with a ideal way to get those lost licks of guac and put your fries to good use. And what other food and utensil hybrids should McDonald's create in the future?

And, as the infomercial explains, because the sandwiches are so stuffed with ingredients, you'll experience "the topping dropping", meaning you'll need a Frork to pick it all up. "I mean, sure.maybe".

After years of tests, hype and changes, McDonald's Corp. has finally introduced the product of its customization effort nationwide, in the form of its new Signature Crafted Recipes line of burgers and chicken sandwiches.

If you do manage to score one, let's us know you've been Frorked in the comments. "And while the Frork is supremely superfluous, it shows that McDonald's is willing to do whatever it takes to help [customers] enjoy every last bite".

Since the launch of All Day Breakfast in late 2015, much of McDonald's focus has been on value plays including McPick 2 and more recently some $1 and $2 drinks. McDonald's hopes you'll be so hungry you will eat the utensils. It's the new eating untensil McDonald's just unleashed on the Internet, which is eating it up digitally, before, we assume, people will eat it literally when it hits select McDonald's restaurants on Friday.
