Fall is my favorite season. The leaves change color, and food all takes on different properties. That doughnut? Now a pumpkin spice doughnut. That latte? Now it’s every white girl’s favorite drink, the pumpkin spice latte. Pumpkin spice everything is out there, ready for the taking, so enjoy it while it lasts. (Next is peppermint everything season.) It’s not surprising that McDonald’s is jumping on the bandwagon, but a way in which McDonald’s Japan is celebrating fall is pretty weird, even by Japanese standards. McDonald’s Japan has pumpkin chocolate french fries.
As you can see above, it’s exactly what you think it might be. Standard McDonald’s fries form the base. Top them with a drizzle of chocolate sauce. Top that with a drizzle of pumpkin sauce. Orange, black, and deep fried to perfection, McDonald’s Japan’s unique take on American food is what makes it fascinating, but these are just… well, these are just probably the most delicious looking thing on the menu for my money.
The pumpkin chocolate fries go on sale on September 28, and they’re out of the stores as of October 31, so if you’re interested, you’d best book your flight to Japan. These babies aren’t coming to America any time soon.
