McDonald’s Corporation (NYSE:MCD) is planning to introduce pumpkin chocolate french fries.
The pumpkin chocolate french fries will only be available in Japan. The strange menu item will only be available for a limited time. Those that order the item will find the fast food chain’s normal french fries, but they will be covered in a chocolate sauce and a pumpkin spice sauce.
McDonald’s will be selling the pumpkin chocolate french fries in Japan from Sept. 28 until Halloween. The chain is introducing the new french fries after the success of its McChoco Potatoes released earlier this year. This menu item was french fries covered in both white chocolate and normal chocolate sauces, reports Grub Street.
Fans of McDonald’s french fries outside of Japan won’t be able to order the pumpkin chocolate french fries. However, they might be able to get the next best thing. The chain now sells Pumpkin Spiced Lattes in the United States. Dipping french fries in this may result in a similar taste to the pumpkin chocolate french fries.
The pumpkin chocolate french fries aren’t the only menu item McDonald’s is testing out, but it may be the strangest. The fast food chain just finished testing a Pesto Mozzarella Melt in Southern California.
Another McDonald’s test taking place in Paris, France is attempting to offer a high-end experience for customers. This includes cutting out its hamburgers, fries and chicken nuggets in favor of sweets and other dessert items.
MCD stock was up slightly as of Thursday afternoon.
