According to The Food Beast
, every year McDonald's offers a limited 3-week run of its "Twister Fries" product in its establishments in the Philippines.
The curly fries were added to the menu on Aug. 1, reported International Business Times
The announcement of the curly fries' return led to comments and speculation on the web whether or not McDonald's would consider bringing this menu item to the U.S. However, at this time it appears the U.S., and other markets, won't be seeing this item any time soon, if at all.
Referred to as "McDo" in the Philippines, reportedly the curly fries have developed a big following
in the region. The item is so popular in the Philippines, customers are pleading with McDonald's to keep the fries as a regular menu item.
However, if this product is like McDonald's other seasonal items in other markets, chances are it won't happen. The company likes to keep these seasonal and/or sporadic menu items elusive, perhaps most notably the McRib or Shamrock Shake
in the U.S., to maintain interest and appeal.
"Twister Fries" are available for P60 ($US 1.43).
