McDonald's To Sell Curly Fries?

McDonald's and French fries are practically synonymous, but curly fries? Don't be so surprised: for a limited time, McDonald's will take a curve and sell its version of curly fries in the Philippines. 

The beloved "Twister Fries" are already making big waves, reports Vibe and the International Business Times. At "McDo" (the nickname for Mickey D's), the Twister Fries have been available since August 1, and will only be on the menu for three short weeks. And yes, fans already are begging the fast-food chain to keep them on the menu. Says one "Twister Fries please don't go" Facebook page, "3 weeks are simply not enough." (Some ominous words for a fast-food French fry.) 

The Twister Fries appear to be a limited-time food, much like the Shamrock Shake and the McRib sandwich — and don't seem to be coming to the United States anytime soon. Too bad, as they're just $1.43 for a serving in the Philippines. Only time will tell if the new addition to the McDonald's fry family will last.
