After the bewildering invention of the S.T.R.A.W for the Two-Toned Chocolate Shamrock Shake, McDonald's has come up with another crazy new invention: The Frork.
The name is as weird as the description of this item as it's literally a red holder for three French fries so that you can make your own "French Fry Fork." I know, sounds ridiculous, right?
McDonald's is hoping to draw in people with this wacky item with a corresponding infomercial, complete with a toll-free number you can call for more info on the Frork and their "new" Signature Crafted burgers. If you missed out on their test release last year, there's three different ones for you to try now: Pico Guacamole, Maple Bacon Dijon, and Sweet Barbecue Bacon.
While the "fundamentally superfluous" Frork may sound completely useless (it probably is), McDonald's is letting you get one of these for the memorabilia shelf as part of their new promo for the fancier sandwiches. Between May 4th-8th, you can get any Signature Crafted burger with a free medium fries and drink. Additionally, on May 5th, Frorks will be available while supplies last for anyone who purchases a Signature Crafted burger.
While it definitely WON'T change the way you fork, it'll be a cool trinket to put up on a shelf somewhere to say, "I got this weird swag from McDonald's."
