Are fries getting a makeover?
They might be, at McDonald’s.
On Thursday, the same day McDonald’s announced that domestic sales were flat in April, the company confirmed to USA TODAY that it will begin testing seasoned fries, called Shakin’ Flavor Fries, on Friday in the Northern California and St. Louis markets.
The seasonings: Garlic Parmesan, Zesty Ranch and Spicy Buffalo.
According to the report, customers will not buy the fries pre-seasoned. Instead, they come with special packets of seasoning that consumers are advised to open, pour, and shake into a specially made mixing bag. Imprinted on the bags: “Seasoned fries. Shake your taste buds.”
