Love the good ol’ fries from McDonald’s? For a limited time, McDonald’s Japan is offering something a little extra to give them even more flavor!  

French fries may be one of the most popular items on the menu at McDonald’s, but that hasn’t stopped the fast food chain from offering them in unique flavors from time to time.  This time, their newest limited edition fries will come with a Italian twist, specifically in the form of bolognese sauce!

The new “Try Pour Some Cheese Bolognese” (Kaketemiiyo Cheese Bolognese) fries are basically french fries served with a warm topping of meaty bolognese sauce and cheese. Now, while the topping doesn’t include any rare or unexpected ingredients, the rich tomato and meat flavor of the sauce along with the melted cheese should combine delightfully with the salty taste of the french fries.

According to the product description from McDonald’s Japan, the cheese bolognese sauce is made with white cheddar cheese and also includes both ground beef and pork, as well as caramelized onions, tomatoes and a dash of black pepper and garlic to give the sauce a rich, yet well-balanced depth of flavor.

McDonald’s Japan will also be running a promotional campaign until February 27 where Twitter users who follow McDonald’s official Twitter account and retweet any of their tweets containing the hashtag “#当ててミーヨ” will have a chance to win one of 100 cheese bolognese blanket and french fries container-shaped case set.

▼ If you’re interested, you can follow their account here and
retweet this tweet or any other with the same ending hashtag.

The “Try Pour Some Cheese Bolognese Fries” will be available at McDonald’s locations across Japan from February 28 to late March for 390 yen (US$3.65), or 490 yen as a combo set with a drink. Alternatively, if you want to have the limited edition fries with a meal, you can get them as part of a value set with a burger of your choice for an extra 100 yen.

With the spicy curly fries campaign having come to an end, if you want a little bit of extra meat and flavor to your fries, make sure to try these while they’re available!
