Finally! There’s a VERY exciting addition to the McDonald’s menu

Move over Twisty Fries… there's a new addition to the McDonald's menu and we already know it's going to be a favourite.

The fast food giant has confirmed it is testing sweet potato fries in a number of its outlets, with the hope of making them a mainstream menu option.

Just look at them there, all golden and crunchy:

Currently the new fries are only on offer in certain McDonald's Create Your Taste restaurants in Texas, but given the widespread appeal of sweet potato chips, we can't see why they wouldn't roll them out across the globe soon enough.

A couple of months back the chain revealed a new 'gourmet breakfast' menu in Australian branches, offering sourdough bread, wilted spinach and smashed avocado alongside your bog-standard Egg McMuffin.

Other gourmet brekkie options included avocado toast with feta cheese and waffles with berries and cream.

The chain has been trying to introduce a more health-conscious ethos for years now, and if sweet potato fries are the next step in that project, well… go for it, we say.
