Today, the world learns that the company will release its latest “French fry innovation” in the form of McChoco Potatoes on January 26. The dish, if you want to call it that, takes the chain’s French fries — the one thing that even some McHaters agree it does right — and drizzles them, questionably, in white milk chocolate and “chocolate with cacao flavor,” a.k.a.
