Move over spork — a new hybrid utensil is in town. McDonald’s debuted the hilarious “frork,” a utensil that’s designed to use three French fries as the edible prongs to catch your spilled special sauce or dribbled ketchup without sacrificing your fingers to grease stains.
The “flavor-focused” frork was debuted in an infomercial parody (complete with overly enthusiastic pitchman from the “Preposterous Product Pitching House”) but the item is real, at least for now.
As you can see in the video below, you can call 1-844-McD-FRORK and you’ll be prompted to pick up a frork and some coupons at your local McDonald’s for a limited time.
"When savoring these recipes, there’s a hitch you just can’t ditch: the topping dropping,” infomercial pitchman Anthony Sullivan says in the spoof video. “This is a real problem. Wait, sorry… Is this a real problem? Probably not, but good news: We solved it anyway."
The fabulous frork is being used to promote the new McDonald’s “Signature Crafted Recipe Sandwiches,” which are sauce-heavy and come with toppings like like Pico Guacamole, Sweet BBQ Bacon, and Maple Bacon Dijon.
