McDonald’s Testing Seasoned Fries: Garlic Parmesan, Zesty Ranch, Spicy Buffalo

This should get your attention… McDonald’s is testing Seasoned Fries in Stockton, California.  Thanks to @RareBleuSkittle on Twitter for sending me the info and pics.  Basically it’s still your classic McDonald’s Fries, but there’s three seasonings you can add to change up the flavor.

Seasoned Fries McDonald'sYour seasoning choices are Garlic Parmesan, Zesty Ranch, and Spicy Buffalo. There’s a step by step graphic and the process goes like this:  Step 1. Pour’em, Step 2. Sprinkle’em, Step 3. Close’em, Step 4. Shake’em, Step 5. Love’em.

    WOW!! I have never been this excited about some fries, but the idea of this and the flavors seems pretty neat.

      They are ok sometimes the seasoning in the packets is hard and you have to break it up.. Three flavors did hear good reveiws of garlic Parmesan

    • Ryan says:

      Got to try some today. Since the store I work at is in Pennsylvania I’m assuming the tests went well. Not surprised, the ranch and garlic flavored I got to try were outstanding. Didn’t get a shot at the buffalo yet but am looking forward to it.

    I’m not much of a fry person, but I’d definitely give these a try. I tried Steak ‘n Shake’s Parmesan cheese ‘n herb fries while on the road a few months ago and they were really awesome. Plain fries are just kind of blah to me.

  3. Scrape says:

    This I would try in a minute. Great idea with some of the fast casual burger joints having seasoned fries.

  4. Andrea says:

    Flashback to Burger King’s Shake’em Up Fries!

  5. Patrick Bateman says:

    I NEVER eat at Mac-Donald’s, but this is actually a good idea I’d like to see at other joints.

  6. Chris W. says:

    Interesting. I’m not sure I ever thought McDonald’s would mess with their “America’s favorite fries”. Next thing you know they’ll be adding hot dogs!

    Not to say that’s a bad thing. I’d love to see more places offer the seasoned fries like Checkers/Ralleys & Popeye’s do. But this is a nice start, should it continue rolling out nationally.

    • OmNomOm says:

      McDonald’s already did mess with the fry recipe. They used to be fried in meat drippings.

      • KevinM says:

        Yes, but they did this by infusing the beef tallow into the fries themselves. This was done to remove any traces of beef from the fried chicken and fish products, as well as to mask the transition to trans-fat-free frying oil.

    YYYYYEEEEEEEEOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW, I burned my hand on the piping hot grease, then dumped them in my lap, and now I’m a Mcmillionaire!!!! LOL

    they sound ok, but that big bag makes me think they’d get cold & soggy real quick

  8. Jessica says:

    I live in stockton, I have the mcd app and saw they were offering a coupon for free seasoning. Didn’t know they were only doing them here. Cool

  9. Davi says:

    I remember my mom getting these while we were on a family vacation like 20 years ago in Ontario. I remember then they also had a barbecue seasoning that could be applied as well. I always wondered why they didn’t offer them in the states.

  10. Phaet says:

    I can’t seem to get away from a McD’s for lunch at least twice a week, and a twist on their fries would have me buying these at least once to try out the new flavors.

  11. Kevin says:

    They are actually REALLY good LOL! I got the Buffalo and the Parmesan ones yesterday. I shook them a few times and the seasoning coated all the fries evenly.

  12. Mr gnarly says:

    I’d rather gravy❗

    • ahecht says:

      You’ll just have to drive to Montreal for that. Most of the McDonald’s in the tourist areas have poutine.

  13. Nick says:

    Why Stockton, of all places?

  14. Billy says:

    I tried these at our convention and they are very good. Simple to execute and give customers a variety. Great move by McD in my opinion. For those of you in CA, what is the up charge?

    I work in Stockton and tried the the Parmesan Garlic fries last night – the salesperson rang them up as if I had a coupon so I didn’t have to pay for the seasoning. On a scale of 1 to 10, it’s a 4. The seasoning’s flavor was “meh”. I used only 1/3 the pouch of seasoning and it was still overwhelming. I don’t believe it would have improved the fries had I used more seasoning.

    While I might give the other flavors a shot in the future, I would not try this one again and most likely will stick to my basic “well done” fries. I love McD’s frys the way they are. I am not going to mess with a good thing?

    I was surprised to see a TV ad for these. I even got coupons in the mail for ‘em, and we almost never get McDs coupons. (this is St. Louis)
