The fast food giant will start selling the ‘salty-sweet’ McChoco Potato dish (pictured) from next week, but fans eager to try it may be disappointed to discover it will only be served in Japanese branches
McDonald’s purists may be alarmed by the development, but the chain’s Japanese branches are known for creating unusual and quirky gastronomic combinations.
Previously, they offered Shaka Shaka Potato fries topped with cheese sauce or bacon, a shrimp burger and even a ‘cream stew pie’.

A McDonald’s spokesman said: ‘Customers will find McChoco Potatoes enjoyable for different occasions, as it also makes for a great dessert.
‘The combination creates a wonderful salty and sweet harmonious taste. This limited-time menu item is a creative way of enjoying McDonald’s delicious French fries.’
The world’s largest burger chain is known for amending its restaurant menus to reflect the tastes of the country it is based in.
Many branches across Asia serve soup, in Indonesia it serves a McRice dish and some German restaurants even serve beer.
Meanwhile in New Zealand, McDonald’s sells meat pies, and it has previously promise to open vegetarian-only diners across India.
The McChoco Potato is available at participating McDonald’s restaurants across Japan starting January 26.
A McDonald’s spokeswoman told CBS News there are no plans to introduce the treat in Britain or the US.
