Just call it the McShake. After more than half a century of the golden arches, McDonald’s has finally decided to enter the delicious and spicy world of seasoned fries. McDonald’s is testing Shakin’ Seasoned Fries, which allows customers to make their own flavor-kicking combinations by pouring packets of seasoning (so far available in garlic parmesan, zesty ranch, and spicy buffalo flavors), into the bag of french fries, and shaking them up, and as the bag of fries says: “Seasoned fries. Shake your taste buds."

The zesty fries will be tested starting this week in Northern California and St. Louis. Even though Shakin’ Seasoned Fries is new to American markets, McDonald’s has been serving versions of these seasoned fries overseas in China, India, and Australia, where they’re known as the “Shake Shake.”
McDonald’s wasn’t ready to announce yet if the fries will become a more permanent menu item in all McDonald’s stores.
"As with all tests, we aren't in a position to draw conclusions or make assumptions about the test, since it is just beginning," said McDonald’s spokeswoman Lisa McComb in a statement.
