Game Changer: Sweet Potato Fries Are Being Served At Some McDonald's


Lately, it seems like McDonald's has been looking for all sorts of ways to make its menu healthier.

If you were excited when it switched over to cage-free eggs and started serving up organic burgers, you might want to brace yourself.

The almighty fast food chain just answered all of our hungry, health-conscious prayers by giving its fries a sweet makeover -- a sweet potato makeover, that is.

Yep, that's right. McDonald's is now serving up some insanely delicious sweet potato fries as part of its Create Your Taste menu.

The McDonald's Texas Panhandle Twitter account broke the news like it was NBD, stating the new fries are "the perfect side to go with your perfect burger."

But let me tell you something, Ronald McDonald. This is, in fact, a very big deal, and now people are going insane over the groundbreaking news.

The fries are still in the testing phase, so right now you can only get your hands on these bad boys in Amarillo, Texas.

But it's only a matter of time before these tasty snacks take over the country... and the world.

Take a look at the pictures below to see what people are saying about these awesome fries.
