If there's one reason to still go to McDonald's, it's the Playplace. In a close second: the fries. And McDonald's fries just keep getting better, first becoming all-you-can-eat, and now smothered in garlic and parmesan. Yep, McDonald's garlic fries are officially a thing.
Today, McDonald's announced that garlic fries are currently being tested at locations in the San Francisco Bay Area, and if the test goes well, it'll roll these fries out at 250 locations across the Bay come August. The made-to-order fries are covered with garlic from Gilroy, CA, otherwise known as the "Garlic Capitol of the World," and thus aptly named "Gilroy Garlic Fries."
Aside from the locally sourced garlic, the fries are also mixed in a puree that includes olive oil, parmesan cheese, parsley, and a little salt. The price varies slightly by location, but Business Insider is reporting that a medium is going for about $0.59 more than a normal order of fries, and a large is selling for $0.69 more.
If you live in the Bay, good luck. Putrid garlic breath is going to be way more widespread.
