McDonald’s Japan, oh how we love you! You give us so many delicious, heart-clogging treats like the Idaho burger with a hashbrown nestled in the middle or the Mega Potato stuffed with well over half a pound of fries. Now the world’s most recognized burger chain brings us little fried clusters of potato and cheese to get us through the cold Japanese winter.

Officially called “Cheese Potato Dip,” these snacks consist of shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheeses mixed with potato. The mixture is formed into balls that are fried to a golden brown, which are then served with an arrabbiata dipping sauce for an added kick of flavor. The snack can be ordered off of the side menu through the winter season for 150 yen (US$1.46) for five pieces. We images these Cheese Potato Dips taste like cheesy tater tots and few things are better than cheesy tater tots.
