Following a test market debut of a Cheesy Bacon Fries last year, McDonald’s is now launching the loaded spuds regionally for a limited time. Areas getting treated to the fries include Northern California (as far south as Fresno), Hawaii and Northern Nevada, including Lake Tahoe.
Unlike the test from last year, which focused on a basket for two, these fries are available either a la carte or as an upgrade to an Extra Value Meal. The individual version is being sold at about $3.50-$3.75, according to Chew Boom.
McDonald’s has been doing a lot to get these Cheesy Bacon Fries in restaurants over the last year. In addition to the aforementioned launches, they were also available at the company’s global headquarters in Chicago, for a limited time. Increasing the availability for the item does suggest that we’re getting closer to a potential launch. Whether that happens in the near future or not, however, remains to be seen for now.
For those in the areas where the Cheesy Bacon Fries are available, you have until the end of the year to try them out for yourselves.
