As a fan of McDonald’s french fries, I panicked when I saw this.

McDonald’s is testing a new menu item in Hawaii, California and Nevada. I’m not sure how Tampa did not become a test market for this and to be honest, I’m sort of bummed about it. McDonald’s has introduced new things to the menu over the years like the McRib, McDLT (remember those?), and up in Maine, you can even get a McLobster Roll. (seriously!)

But the french fries? McDonald’s has pretty much left those alone. Rightly so, they’re a classic. You don’t mess with a classic. How can you perfect, perfection? How about you… add BACON and CHEESE! Yum!

Yes Mickey D’s is trying out Cheesy Bacon Fries on the west coast. They sell for around $3.50-$4.00. Check it out for yourself HERE:
