After a revamp of its iconic Big Mac, McDonald’s is trialling a new flavour of french fries.
Dubbed “Gilroy Garlic Fries”, the new fries are seasoned with garlic grown in Gilroy, California – the “garlic capital of the world”, McDonald’s said. The fries are also made with olive oil, parmesan cheese, parsley and a pinch of salt. The garlic fries are part of McDonald's efforts to experiment with regional flavours and food on its menu. Chef Michael Haracz, manager of mulinary innovation at McDonald's USA, said the company is committed to listening to their customers. “We’re proud of the work done by local franchisees and the regional team to create this menu item with locally-sourced garlic and we look forward to introducing Gilroy Garlic Fries to our customers in the Bay Area,“ Haracz said.
