McDonald's debuts their highest calorie menu item with supersized French fries.
McDonald’s doesn’t fool around when they decide to Supersize a food product. The Mega Potato has launched in Japan. It is a ridiculously huge portion of French fries approximately double the size of a large order.
Containing about 1,150 calories, the Mega Potato is described as the highest calorie menu item ever available at the fast food chain. The ad's message is that it is “perfect for sharing”.
The new item comes just after Dr. Cindy Goody, who serves as the Director of Nutrition for McDonald's USA claimed the company’s food was healthy.
She stated “It is possible to eat from the recommended USDA My Plate food groups when visiting McDonald’s. It’s about choice. It’s about customization. It’s about looking at the calories on the menu board.”
Last year, McDonald's went a different route, announcing that the business will open its first ever meat-free restaurant, located in a northern Indian city.
Since beef is prohibited here due to religious reasons, they have offered other meat products on the menu.
