There has been a heck of a buzz surrounding MacDonald’s cheesy loaded fries that was rolled out in stores recently. For today’s article, we tried Macdonalds’ Cheesy Loaded fries for you so you didn’t need to.
Almost every Facebook feed or Instagram story I’ve seen has at least one post dedicated to dissing it. Patrons have claimed that the actual item doesn’t look like how it was advertised. Macdonald’s has since taken to Facebook to speak up on the issue.
For an unknown reason or another, I was always under the impression that it was mayonnaise, cheese and bacon(from the breakfast menu) dumped atop a pack of medium fries. It was only until recently that a friend told me it was sour cream instead and told me it was actually pretty good. That sparked my curiosity and I decided to go give it a try.
I was still having my doubts about it being all fries and no sauce so I topped up 50 cents for extra sour cream and cheese.
I was pleasantly surprised at how well everything came together. It was a mini party in my mouth- you know, good old MacDonald’s. Every fry was generously drenched in sauce. Definitely worth the extra 50 cents! However too much sauce can be too cloying(je-lat) after a while so be warned.
Somehow I was craving it again the next day so I went back to have the cheesy loaded fries again! I got the normal portion without extra sauce this time round.
I wish there was a little more sauce to coat each and every fry because 3/4 through the cheesy loaded fries I ran out of sauce.
Below is a comparison of the fries with and without extra sauce(+50 cents) side by side!
We had another colleague Ian try the cheesy loaded fries and here’s what he had to say:
“The warm nacho cheese didn’t overpower the bacon. The bacon was almost like a hint, or an aftertaste. I was lucky to have gotten fries that were still hot and crispy, so I got an addictively savoury, crispy bite every time.”
