Ugh. It’s like that bougie ginge girl from all of the pumpkin spice memes has been brought to life by the power of our collective imagination and has infiltrated every corner of society! Either that or Japan continues to be the land of WTF (not to be confused with Florida, which is the STATE of WTF). To celebrate it’s 45th anniversary in Japan, McDonald’s has introduced the “Halloween Choco Potato” to its customers. It’s french fries covered in pumpkin spice and chocolate sauces. I guess this is for people who like it when “sweet” and “savory” double-team their mouths.
Reuters reports that the customers seem to be into it.
“The flavors of pumpkin and chocolate went unexpectedly well and it was quite tasty,” Ayano Ishikama, 22, said after sampling the fries at one of the chain’s restaurants in Tokyo.
It’s gone too far. Everyone wants every part of the food at the same time. It’s fast-food anarchy! We’re going to end up with food that is an unidentifiable sludge. Did you know that they don’t even put the Happy Meals in boxes anymore? It’s just a brown paper bag like you use when you’re disguising drinking in public! Standards, people!
