McDonald's has announced on its Facebook page that it has brought back one of its popular seasonal items ─ curly fries, but chances are your local McDonald's won't be carrying this menu item.
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).
