McDonald’s tested garlic fries and they were a hit (Above)
McD’s tested the fries at four locations in San Francisco earlier this year and within days had sold out of all their supplies.
“In less than two weeks, our small, four-restaurant test of Gilroy Garlic Fries has been a huge success, and we are now experiencing a temporary shortage of supplies,” McDonald’s told SFGate. “We are excited about how many people have visited our restaurants to try the fries, and we apologize for any inconvenience to our customers.”
The made-to-order fries are a mix of “Gilroy garlic and olive oil, parmesan cheese, parsley, and a pinch of salt,” the company says.
