  • I like chocolate and...I like Mcdonald's

  • So when I heard McDonald's Japan had conjured up a brand new menu item

  • called "Choco Potato"

  • it was like Christmas all over again...times...

  • ...seven!!

  • I've always been a fan of McDonald's Japan's clever, quirky menu items though

  • For example a few years ago, I covered some Limited Edition Gourmet Burgers that came wrapped up....

  • ...like iPods

  • And more recently I even witnessed an owl taking a selfie with Ronald McDonald

  • Although I suspect that may have just been the every day life adventures of an owl

  • as opposed to some kind of clever promotion by McDonald's

  • But anyway enough of this talking business

  • let's go and see if it's any good!

  • A fork

  • Presumably it's gonna be a messy affair..

  • Oh! Double Choco Sauce!

  • Because one chocolate sauce simply isn't enough

  • Original Golden Crispy McFry Potato Chocolate Sauce

  • It's a bit of a mouthful isn't it

  • Yeah I quite like the box.. it's got me in the spirit of chocolate

  • Presumably nothing extraordinary inside, just the fries

  • I'm always really hopeless with this

  • That's a lot of chocolate

  • Actually looks quite apealling, i'm a little bit skeptical

  • But it actually smells really nice

  • Still can't believe I'm filming myself eating McDonald's fries with chocolate sauce on...

  • I really need to get out more don't I?

  • It works!

  • It definitely works

  • McDonald's Japan have done it again

  • I don't know what they did before, but they've done it this time!

  • It actually is quite good, the salt on the fries doesn't overpower the chocolate

  • Probably because there's 2 chocolate sauces instead of one, very clever that!

  • I could definitely see this working outside Japan, especially in the UK

  • Yeah this would work, definitely!

  • Then again I've had about 5 mouthfuls now and my mouth just doesn't know what is going on

  • On one side it tastes quite salty and the other side quite sweet

  • So...I don't know if I like that now

  • What would I give it out of 10?

  • About a 7!

  • But would I buy it again?

  • No, no i wouldn't!

  • But I don't regret buying it now, for the novelty factor

  • If you're in Japan, give them a shot, they're not that bad!

  • And if you're not in Japan..ahahah too bad! There's nothing you can do!

  • Except maybe buying some chocolate spread and smear them over your fries

  • In fact that would be cheaper than the ones I just bought

  • Now I feel like an idiot...

  • No I don't, I've got Chocolate Fries, from McDonald's

  • See ya later!

  • Oh I finished them..that was quick..

I like chocolate and...I like Mcdonald's
