Sometimes you need something sweet... sometimes you need something salty.  It's an age old dilemma.  But now, thanks to America's favorite drive through restaurant, we can have both... at the same time!

On Tuesday, McDonalds’s Japan pulled the curtain off its newest culinary masterpiece: the McChoco Potato:

Japanese customers can now enjoy an ideal combination of McDonald’s French fries drizzled with two types of chocolate sauces – chocolate with cacao flavor and white milk chocolate. Customers will find McChoco Potatoes enjoyable for different occasions, as it also makes for a great dessert. The combination creates a wonderful salty and sweet harmonious taste. This limited-time menu item is a creative way of enjoying McDonald’s delicious French fries.”

What do you think?  Are you willing to give chocolate covered french fries a try?  I think I'll wait to see how well they go over in Japan first, thanks.
