Unless, it's a version of Fillet-o-fish, it is not going to sale.

This is why the Nekkei dropped 7% yesterday.

So they took a fry box and expanded it around the middle.  They're also offering a bigger portion of french fries.

Yeah but calling it the Fat Man and Little Boy Special was a bit much.

Japanese culture is pretty hostile towards obese people, so I doubt it will be a problem for them.

They do that "potato party" thing these days there, right?

So this was a logical conclusion for McD's.  A no-brainer.

There is a current trend in Japan to have 'French fry' or 'potato' parties.

Where they buy an insane amount of fries and spread them around and take pictures. That's about it. This is nothing but a response to that.

I was going to do a GIS for "potato party" but then I stopped myself.  I learned my lesson with lemons.

Stateside they used to have a fry size bigger than supersize at mcdonalds. They put fries in a large drink cup instead of a fry container. Used to share with 2-3 friends during early college years.

Things like these are cheaper if you're planning on sharing and back then every bit of savings counted to me.

I didn't, but it's safe. There apparently is some fad about buying large amounts of French fries. Seems to be mostly a Korean hung though, and I've certainly never seen it in Japan.

It's a double order of fries. That's not more really calories, it's just more food.

I could just buy $500 worth of fries, put them in a bowl, and then claim I've made the highest calorie meal ever.

When acceptable time frames for jokes are the question, the answer should probably not involve comparing an event that happened 70 years ago to one that occurred 3 days ago.

Unless you really pound back the fries, won't about a quarter of them be cold by the time you get to them?

Yeah, if I want too many damn fries (and I admit, sometimes that's exactly what I want), I'll go there.

And they give you malt vinegar to put on them, just as God intended.

Only if they make a fire-bomb version ....
 
2013-05-23 10:08:30 AM
they are into communal eating, so it would probably serve 4 or more, here we would ask to supersize it and wash it down with diet cola.

LittleSmitty: 5 Guys wonders why it took them this long to figure it out. Man 5 guys gives you a load of fries


which is why i don't go to 5 guys if i have no one to go with who will share fries. if they offered a normal order for about $1.50, instead of the 1/2 gallon for about $3, i'd go. i could get a burger, fries, and drink for about $7 if they offered a normal size. i'm not into spending $9+ to waste extra fries. this really has irked me for about a year since they opened one near sundance square, a convenient lunchtime walk from work.

2013-05-23 10:15:23 AM
We had that in Vancouver when the Grizzlies were here. It was called the Big Country Fries. It was a bunch of fries put into a special edition Big Country themed 1.5 litre cup. Why yes, it was awesome.

one of the reasons i got as fat as i did is that when fries are in front of me, i can't stop eating them. also one of the most difficult self-control issues i'm on the verge of completely breaking, and i'm losing more weight because of it. a coworker offered me her leftover fries the other day, and i actually didn't eat ALL of them...hey, it's progress.

but anyway, a "potato party" would be torture. either i'd stress myself too hard to have the restraint not to pig out, or i'd pig out till i'm sick on fries.

Even their small size is too much for my wife and I. But with four dogs, the surplus isn't.

is this true?

actually truth or fiction, it's quite epic and should be applied to mcd ads in the usa.

mcd ads in the usa for several years had really dumbed down the message...only lately with the mccafe items have i started noticing some slightly more intelligent mcd ads

Been to plenty of cafes and restaurants that serve unlimited fries. Red Robin for instance. Denny's for some reason.

"Crappy Fiat" is a redundancy.

Masterstuff: Stateside they used to have a fry size bigger than supersize at mcdonalds. They put fries in a large drink cup instead of a fry container. Used to share with 2-3 friends during early college years.

Yep, I remember that. It was called bucket size, if I remember correctly. And it was AWESOME.
