We’re Lovin’ McDonald’s New Loaded French Fries

They may be pricey, but they are SO worth it! Would you order these?

French fries are great and all, but have you tried loaded cheese fries? A ton of chains are doing it—Wendy’s, Shake Shack, Arby’s, Taco Bell, and of course, In-N-Out’s “animal style” fries. Even we have our own Loaded Waffle Fries recipe that’s so good, we can’t stop making it. So it was only a matter of time until McDonald’s released their own twist on loaded fries. And for that, we have one word: BACON.

Yep, you read that right. McDonald’s has officially launched their Cheesy Bacon Fries across the United States. Curious to what all the hype is about, I decided to walk over to McDonald’s and give them a try myself.

What do they taste like?

To be honest, the fries are exactly what you would think. It’s classic McDonald’s fries topped with cheese sauce and bacon bits. You won’t get any surprises with this dish, but if you watch closely, you may get a thrill from watching the McDonald’s employee squirt on that cheese with a syringe that looks very similar to a squirt gun! It was exhilarating.

You’ll know what to expect, but I promise you the flavor is still a delightful one! These fries really are the perfect snack after a long day at work, and it was fun getting to share some with my co-workers.

What are the details?

Unlike the usual side of McDonald’s fries, the Cheesy Bacon Fries come in a box and are served with a fork. We all know it’s the polite way to eat loaded fries…but we still like to pick them up with our fingers anyway.

The fries are a bit pricier, which makes sense given the extra topping. I snagged a box of these for $4.24, which is around the same price you could probably snag one of their double cheeseburgers and a small fry, and up there with McDonald’s latest 2 for $5 deal. But hey, when it’s time for some good snacking, it’s hard to refuse an order of loaded Cheesy Bacon Fries.

No word yet on how long these fries will be on the menu, so if you’re craving your own, you may want to get to a McDonald’s ASAP!
