Reactions to the release of McDonald's new "McFry Potato Chocolate Sauce" (¥330) in Japan played out predictably. Many were shocked that this supposedly unholy union could exist, but chocolate-covered potato chips are neither new in Japan nor in many other countries.

McDonald's version taste fine, striking a solid balance between savory and sweet. Each serving comes with milk chocolate and a sweet white sauce that you can apply yourself. They'll fill you up but, despite all the online shock, aren't that strange.
