Here's where most normal human beings agree: Fries are meant to be spiced up. Once you've fried the potato to a crisp you can garnish it with salt, but that's just the beginning. There's all kinds of condiment and topping combinations to try. Chili, mayonnaise or cheese fries. Why not!
And of course at the top of the french fries food chain are garlic fries.
But what happens when McDonald's tries its hand at "Gilroy garlic fries." Would you dive in or stay away?
McDonald's is now offering garlic fries at four Bay Area locations.
The case for McDonald's garlic fries.
McDonald's claims it's sourcing the garlic from Gilroy California, the garlic capital of the world! And if there is one thing that McDonald's historically has gotten right, it's fries. The made-to-order fries are tossed with a "puree mix" of chopped garlic, olive oil, Parmesan cheese, parsley and salt. If you closed your eyes and didn't know it was from McDonald's, you'd probably ask for more.
The case against McDonald's fries.
McDonald's is desperate. They've been facing a downward spiral of sales for a few years now. This move is a sad attempt at getting people excited about McDonald's. And there's a reason McDonald's, once synonymous with Americana, is falling down. We now know fast food is just not good for us to eat. Putting garlic on it won't solve that problem.
