When you think of McDonald’s you probably think of burgers and fries. But could the fast-food joint be the next big thing for Mozzarella sticks? Probably not, but that’s not stopping at least one location from serving the cheesy sticks.

According to a report from FoodBeast, a northern New Jersey McDonald’s is offering a box of three-piece mozzarella sticks and marinara sauce for a dollar.

It’s not clear whether this is a rogue McDonald’s or if the company as a whole is truly considering adding the option to it’s already self-described overcomplicated menu.

FoodBeast reports that the cheese sticks are already available on McDonald’s menus in the UK.

Mozzarella sticks, a food staple of happy hours and endless appetizer menus, aren’t a completely unheard of fast-food offering.

Previously, Burger King added mozz sticks to the menu, however, the cheesy logs didn’t garner enough love from customers to make it a permanent menu fixture in the U.S.
