McDonald's Shaker Fries Are Back!!!

When I heard this rumour last night I was VERY excited!  I jumped on to Twitter and asked if it was true then I went into a movie and didn't see the replies until it was over.  I made Chyken stop at McDonald's on the way home from the cinema and get some.  Even though I had Grill'd for dinner and a San Churro hot chocolate before the movie and a choc top during the movie.

I don't think these are the same ones from my youth, I think they were spicier.  They were part of a mexican themed range called 'El Maco'.  However, these are indeed excellent!
When I expressed my joy at the triumphant return of Shaker Fries on Facebook, several people replied asking what they were.  I was appalled!  So while I was preparing mine I took some photos.  Sorry they're a bit crappy, I took them with my iPhone while Chyken was getting petrol.

So, you get this extra bag when you buy the fries.

Dump your fries in the bag...

Add the flavour sachet...

I put the whole thing in, but there are directions on the bag....

Then you shake!

And Bob's your Uncle!  Enjoy the deliciousness!

What food, fast or otherwise, from years ago do you wish they would bring back?

P.S. This is NOT a sponsored post.  McDonald's have no idea who I am and no idea I've written this.  However, if you are from McDonalds and you want to sponsor me I am open to offers and my contact details can be found up the top of this page.


  1. Haha. Mmmm shaker fries.

    I wish they'd bring back the giant frozen coke cups! It's not like I want them all the time, but I just LOVE buying the massive ones when I'm feeling under the weather. Or hung over. Or both.

  2. Sarah - I like that idea!!!

    Melissa - Can't you just buy two smaller ones? (But, yes, I know what you mean, it sucks when they take something good away!)

  3. Bring back the shrimp fry platter from Sizzler ...... in fact, bring back Sizzler!!!

  4. Great idea, Mrs Woog!!! And toffee apple paddle pops.

  5. PEOPLE DON'T REMEMBER SHAKER FRIES? That's BIZARRE and I am pretty sure, if not certain, that warrants a de-friend. I loved these babies and intend to get my ass to maccas in the near (read: immediate) future to get my hands on some.

  6. I LOVE shaker fries! I got all excited when I saw the words on your FB page. Love, love, love them.

    Do you remember Crazy Critter ice blocks? Yum.

  7. I remember them but I've never tried them.... Does that get me unfolowed???

  8. Alex - I don't remember crazy critter ice blocks? What were they?

    Glowless - As if I could ever unfollow you! Once you've had a GlowJob you hang around forever! (not in a crazy stalker way though)
