McDonald's New Sandwiches: Supremely Superfluous "The Frork" With Sandwiches

McDonald's is apparently unleashing the Frork on the US for a limited time, and announced the product with a tongue-in-cheek infomercial starring English pitchman Anthony Sullivan (of OxiClean and Edge of Glory fame). McDonald's is tackling this so-called dilemma with the Frork, a silicone fork-shaped utensil topped with an opening where the customer can insert three-to-four World Famous Fries. You've always used your fries to mop up the "topping droppings" that ooze out as you bite into your burger, right? If this seems like a joke, it's not.

What's being introduced here are three toppings-pico guacamole, maple-bacon dijon, and sweet BBQ bacon-which customers can mix and match with its quarter-pound beef patty, grilled chicken, or buttermilk crispy chicken patty.

The concept has already been deemed "ludicrous" and "infuriatingly stupid" by some. Probably not, but good news: "We solved it anyway".

McDonald's is touting a new french fry-centric utensil — the "frork" — as part of a campaign to promote its new line of burgers.

US intelligence officials "know very well that these claims are false", he said. Mattis also met with Afghanistan's president, Ashraf Ghani, on Monday.


Sullivan said, "Will the frork improve your Signature Crafted Recipes eating experience?" I mean, sure... maybe!

"With Signature Crafted Recipes, table service, self-order kiosks, modernized buildings and more, we are committed to building a better McDonald's for the 1 million people we serve every day in Florida", Tampa-based McDonald's franchisee J.C. Prado said.

The products range in price from $4.99 to $5.19.
