McDonald's weirds out with fork made from french fries

McDonald's weirds out with fork made from french fries

Dear readers, how many times have you been halfway through chowing down on a McDonald's burger or chicken sandwich, only to be confronted by the grim specter of "topping droppings"?

Simply insert your fries into the end of the frork like prongs, and there you have it: a convenient, easy way to scoop up the fallen toppings from the chain's new line of Signature Crafted Recipe Sandwiches.

McDonald's announced a new product that will be released Friday that will help you make a happy plate without getting your hands messy. Maybe McDonald's is missing out on a golden opportunity to have these things around its restaurants in real life, even in limited quantities, just to carry the joke to its logical extreme. Probably not. Will the Frork improve your Signature Crafted Recipes eating experience?

"The flavor-focused, fundamentally superfluous frork", Sullivan says.

First, McDonald's itself acknowledges that this frork contraption is "solving a problem" that is not really a problem.

The sandwiches are priced at an average $4.99 to $5.19. Wait, sorry is this a real problem?

McDonald's has also set up a website,, where customers can find the nearest participating location.

In addition, customers who purchase one of the sandwiches from Thursday through May 8 will get a free order of medium fries and a free soft drinks.

Early this year, the company gave away bottles of Big Mac Special Sauce to celebrate the introduction of new sizes of Big Macs.
