McDonald's Is Putting Chocolate on Its French Fries Now
I've only cried twice in my life: the day my grandfather died, and today, when I saw McDonald's drizzle two kinds of chocolate sauce onto French fries.   (McDonald's)

Let it never be said that innovation is dead. NBC Chicago reports McDonald's will soon be selling its classic French fries drizzled with two kinds of chocolate sauces. The McChoco Potato was announced Tuesday and will be debuting in Japan next week. "Customers will find McChoco Potatoes enjoyable for different occasions, as it also makes for a great dessert," according to a McDonald's press release. "The combination creates a wonderful salty and sweet harmonious taste." The McChoco Potato will only be available in Japan for the time being, probably because we still owe them for that Matthew Broderick Godzilla movie.

But fret not, food adventurers living in the US. Bustle reports Cinnamon Bun Oreos hit store shelves on Monday, and apparently the "first new Oreo flavor of the year" is getting "rave reviews." The new Oreo puts cinnamon bun icing-flavored filling between cinnamon cookies. "One of my favorite parts about being an adult is being able to eat whatever I want for breakfast," writes Kathryn Kattalia at Bustle. "I have a feeling I will soon be adding this creative new twist on Nabisco's classic sandwich cookie to my morning meal lineup." Keep innovating, America! (More McDonald's stories.)
