McDonald’s Testing Sweet Potato Fries In Texas

For about as long as we can remember, McDoanld’s has been known for their over salted French fries. While the staple item has undergone a few makeovers in the past – remember the shaken’ flavor seasoned fries? – the fast food giant is gearing up for perhaps its biggest starch transformation: adding sweet potato fries to the menu. 

Several McDonald’s restaurants in Texas have added the sweeter side to the menu as part of a test run for the “Create Your Taste” pilot, Eater reports.

News of the new side addition came after a local McDonald’s spread the love on Twitter.

A spokesperson for the fast food company confirmed that sweet potato fries are currently available in the Amarillo, TX market for a limited time.

Eater points out that this isn’t McDonald’s first foray into the sweeter side of starch: restaurants in Australia and Singapore also offer sweet potato fries.
