It's Halloween !!!! Yeaaaahhhhh !!!! It's time to get your horrors, witches costumes and decorate your interior of ghosts, monsters and companies ... Here in Japan, it is a festival that is celebrated very recently and all stores redecorate their windows with Halloween colors: black, orange, ... The giant fast food chain Mc Donald's is no exception. They released two types of sauces with Halloween colors to accompany the fries. Warning! These are flavors that come out a bit unconventional : one is Chocolate-Pumpkin Sauce and one is Purple Sweet Potato-Chocolat Sauce! :-O
Wooooow! When I saw the poster at McDonalds, I found it really pretty. The colors orange, black and purple on the fries, it really sticks to the spirit of Halloween. For cons, I was a little bit apprehensive to taste it. It's not really my thing sweet fries :( But I saw that a lot of countries where French fries are eaten with ice cream, chocolate, sweet .... The Halloween fries at McDonalds are very convenient because in fact they give you a portion of chips (equivalent to the average size) in a box and the sauces are in a separated small box. That's pretty cool! That way, we are not obliged to put the sauce on all the fries and we can well proportion the desired amount of sauce. In addition, the sauce boxes are created to be super convenient, you just fold the box in 2 (they are pre-cut) and the sauces come out gradually. Super smart!
In the end, I do not like the taste it gives to the fries, nor the chocolate-pumpkin, neither the sweet potato-chocolate. The pumpkin one is a bit more tolerable than the sweet potato. It is really too sickening the sweet potato sauce (I was nauseous :s). Pierrick and our friend Thomas found it not too bad. They both preferredthe sweet potato sauce but were quickly sickened LOL.... The cost of a Halloween fries box with chocolate and pumpkin or sweet potato is 330 yen, which is not too much for an event product. The system for delivering the sauce on the fries is pretty funny and the colors are really seasonal.
Well, for those who like to try new things, those who loves Halloween and have fun, taking risks, I suggest you to pick your Halloween fries at McDonalds. Always taste it before saying you do not like. Personally, I definitely do not like it ;p
