McDonald's seems to have fully grasped that sweet and salty are a great combination - take chocolate pretzels, or perhaps their recent McFry Potato Chocolate Sauce for example. So in gearing up for the fall season and Halloween, McDonald's Japan has just unveiled their latest concoction: pumpkin chocolate french fries.
Drizzled in chocolate sauce and a new bright orange pumpkin sauce, it's unclear as to what exactly the pumpkin sauce will taste like, but if it's any indicator of what's yet to come, McDonald's past seasonal offerings weren't half bad. Taste aside, the new pumpkin chocolate fries definitely sport a highly festive look.
If you find yourself in Japan around September 28, be sure to check out a nearby McDonald's for the Halloween-themed treat.
