New McDonald's Invention Makes It Easier To Dip Your Fries

Picture this: You've just ordered McDonald's Pico Guacamole sandwich.

It's pretty fantastic — after all, it does come with guac, and we can't ask for much more than that.


But sometimes, it's hard to keep the yummy ingredients in between the sandwich buns, so you lose out on a lot of deliciousness and end up with a bunch of guac on your plate instead of in your mouth (bummer).

Now, however, McDonald's has come up with a perfect way to get those lost licks of guac and put your fries to good use.

Ladies and gents, I present to you... the "frork."

Yes, the frork.

(I know, I thought it'd be "McFork," too.)

This new gadget allows hungry customers to use their fries as prongs to scoop up the extra ketchup or guac rather than smearing it all over their plate while they try to salvage the last bites of their meal.

Cutting edge. We're willing to bet Ronald McDonald is lovin' it.


"While the frork is supremely superfluous, it shows that McDonald's is willing to do whatever it takes to help [customers] enjoy every last bite," chef Michael Haracz said in a statement.

There's certainly nothing wrong with that, right?

Soon after the genius invention, McDonald's partnered up with TV spokesman Anthony Sullivan.


According to the statement, Sullivan said, "Will the Frork change your life? Probably not. Will the Frork improve your Signature Crafted Recipes eating experience? I mean, sure. Maybe!"

Woah there, tiger — let's not get too excited.

The Frork is meant to accompany McDonald's new Signature Crafted Recipes' sandwiches, which include Pico Guacamole, Sweet BBQ Bacon and Maple Bacon Dijon.

It definitely seems like a necessity if you're eating something messy like one of these babies.

For all of those hungry and curious customers, the fork will be available starting on Cinco de Mayo with a purchase of a Signature Crafted Recipes sandwich. This sounds like it's an amazing time to order the Pico Guacamole meal and give the new utensil a go.

Happy munching!
