1,142 calories – that’s how much you’ll be consuming when you eat a whole serving of McDonald’s Japan’s Mega Potato Fries. The newest offering from the fast-food giant gives customers three-quarters of a pound of fries to munch on, the highest calorie count among all the food they offer.
But lest you think that McDonald’s wants to promote obesity in Japan, their promos strongly suggest that the Mega Potato fries is best shared with other people. For only 490 yen (approx. 5 dollars) per serving, you can already have a fun, calorie-filled potato bonding with your friends. And the money is probably worth it since the humongous cardboard container is filled to overflowing with the greasy, but delicious (if that’s your thing) fried potato. But you had better hurry up because they will be offering it for a very limited time only, which is good news (or not) for all the heart doctors in the country.
And if you wonder why they’re only offering the Mega Potato Fries in Japan, apparently, it’s the in thing now to have potato parties, based on the sheer number of photos posted on different social networks across Asia. And also, the menu of McDonald’s in Japan offers a few unique offerings as well, like the Bacon Lettuce Egg Wrap, Mega Muffin (it’s like a Big Mac McMuffin sandwich), Croquette Burger and the Teriyaki McBurger. Oh, and one more thing, Ronald McDonald is known by another name in Japan: he’s simply “Donald”.
