    McDonald's Is Testing Loaded Bacon Fries Because God Is Good


    In the world of French fries, McDonald's pretty much rules king.

    Sure, McDonald's fries may not actually be the best-tasting to everyone, but you can't argue with the fact that they're the most ubiquitous version in the world.


    Well, pause your slow crawl through the drive-thru window and reroute your GPS, because this summer, the fast food chain is testing a new style of their signature fries in select U.S. locations.


    The new flavor? Cheese- and bacon-smothered fries. 🚨

    The fries are topped with cheddar cheese sauce and smoked applewood-bacon.

    Retailing for $3.99, the fries have so far been spotted in select cities in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, and Kentucky.


    "Right now, this is a test," a McDonald's spokesperson confirmed with BuzzFeed Food. Depending on the success of this temporary run, though — who knows? McDonald's might start selling bacon and cheese fries everywhere sooner than later.

    From the few IRL photos of the photos that have surfaced, they pretty much look like a tasty marriage of fries + bacon bits + nacho cheese sauce. 😍

    Move over, In-N-Out animal-style fries.

    McDonald's has already experimented with smothered fries in the past in Australia, Japan, and China — so it was probably only a matter of time until U.S. restaurants started offering them, too.

    The only confusion here? The fries are marketed as a shareable side for two.


    Hahaha that's a good one McDonald's, but I NEVER. SHARE. MY FRIES. 😬
