I would love to try poutine without driving to Canada and having them foist their socialized healthcare and marijuana on me while I'm eating.

Fries, gravy, cheese. It's not hard to make. Canada doesn't have some special poutine magic.

dont understand this.  i was in montreal a few years ago and saw it on mickey's menu.  what i didnt get to try while in toronto some months ago was mclobster.
 
2013-12-05 09:20:28 PM  
I'm not surprised. Even in western Canada, KFC and Dairy Queen have been serving poutine for years.
 
2013-12-05 09:21:44 PM  
Um, yuck........

/yeah I know, don't knock it 'til you've tried it.....
 
2013-12-05 09:21:44 PM  
KFC's been doing it for years there.  Whenever I go to Canada, I try and stop into a KFC just to get it.

*They couldn't call it Poutine, though, as it sounds too much like Arugula

BK has had poutine for nearly 2 decades. I assumed McD did too.
 
2013-12-05 09:22:57 PM  
In a photo taken byTwitter user @The_Alex, pale misshapen cheese curds are clearly visible.

I didn't realize cheese curds had a particular shape.
 
2013-12-05 09:23:07 PM  
This just in: McDonald's started offering fries.
 
2013-12-05 09:25:43 PM  
Wendy's has been serving poutine in Canada for quite a while. Welcome to the club MACdonalds.

A lot of the McD's near the water in New England have a lobster roll on the menu, at least seasonally.

And I know I saw poutine at McD's in Ontario last summer. I know, because it was late and I was drunk and it seemed like a good idea.
 
2013-12-05 09:26:07 PM  
I'm surprised it took McD's that long. KFC, A&W, and Burger King have had poutine on the menus in Canada for at least a couple of years now. it's pretty shiatty quality poutine and I'm sure McD's will be too, but that's to be expected in fast food. Canadian Taco Bell serves fries and they do fries supreme which is basically all the fixings of a taco and sour cream dumped on top of fries. It's a guilty pleasure for the once every couple of years I end up at a Taco Bell, but I was dismayed when we ended up at a Taco Bell in Phoenix to find they had no fries, just nachos on the menu.

/just talking about this stuff makes me feel like I should go diarrhea

I find that DQ's poutine is better than KFC's. KFC's is way too salty.
 
2013-12-05 09:27:07 PM  
All fast food restaurants, including McDonald, have had poutine on the menu for years in Quebec. They serve it in a plastic bowl, not in that cardboard box.

Yeah, and if they don't get it to you quick enough or if the gravy is blazing hot then the curds lose their all-important squeaky-ness.

McD's has been offering McLobster in New England for decades, no need to go to Canuckia for it.

Chicago?  Shouldn't be a problem.  If I can get it in Atlanta, you can get it in Chicago.
 
2013-12-05 09:31:14 PM  
Depends where in Canada - I worked for them years ago and we had poutine on the menu then. It did vanish for a while in Ontario, though, and only recently has been coming back.
 
2013-12-05 09:35:43 PM  
I remember McDonald's served poutine in the early 00's. Wasn't very good though. Burker King does it better. And New York Fries puts them both to shame.
 
2013-12-05 09:36:36 PM  
Even New York Fries has poutine...

I tried poutine for the first time a few weeks ago. It was vegan poutine at that. Delicious.

Smoke's Poutine.

That is all.

One of the reasons I don't like "real" poutine is the squeakiness. It's like nails on a chalkboard in my head. And poutine that isn't real, i.e. made with crappy cheese and gravy, just sucks. So no poutine for me, thanks.
 
2013-12-05 09:44:38 PM  
I seem to remember that they had it before, in the mid-90's when EVERYONE was trying for it.  They they stopped selling it everywhere except for Quebec.

But if it is back again, I am not going to complain.
 
2013-12-05 09:46:02 PM  
I tried it the other night. As hard as it is too imagine, farking up poutine is very common. McDicks farked it hard. I don't know if the great depression had a taste, but if it did it would be incredibly similar to McDonalds poutine.

What is it with you wierdos and your obsession over discussing poutine?
For frickin sakes
Its fries, cheese and gravy
Have you never been to Scranton?
 
2013-12-05 09:49:44 PM  
Oh geez, you know I've seen cheese curds at the store, but they're really expensive, ya know?  I'd have to work half a day to buy some of those, don't ya think?  I guess I could make some brown gravy, but then I'd have to drag out the fryer and oil and all that stuff.  Uff Da!
 
2013-12-05 09:49:49 PM  
My main problem with poutine is that if I had it, I'd eat it. It looks delicious and also very unwise.
 
2013-12-05 09:51:17 PM  
Lol at all the 'muricans bashing Canada. Spend your time off kicking puppies too, you illiterate, inbred farktards? Also, KFC poutine is awesome.

Actually, Canada is "in America," being as how it is located within what is commonly referred to as the North American Continent, and for other reasons I shan't go into at this particular moment.

Hard to get fresh cheese curds is many parts of the States

It's really nothing special. Have you eaten fries with gravy? Now imagine some partially melted shiatty store bought mozzarella with it. Grats, you have now tasted poutine.
 
2013-12-05 10:04:39 PM  
Never thought Poutine even LOOKED appetizing. Then I tried one. Loved it.

Tried it at every fast food place who served it.

Hint: NEVER order Poutine from a fast food place. McBarf won't be any different.

You really need cheese curds, which outside of Wisconsin can be a biatch to find. Either order online, make yourself, or use cubes of mozzarella instead (not quite the same though).

Cheese curds are a great snack though, they are addicting! Sadly they can be expensive in Ontario.

Denis Leary: Smoking Poutine takes ten years off your life. Well it's the ten worst years, isn't it folks? It's the ones at the end! It's the wheelchair, kidney dialysis, adult diaper farking years. You can have those years! We don't want 'em, alright?

Doesn't the gravy make the fries soggy?  Ick.

I've never had fries with gravy, but isn't the inside of a frh just mashed potatoes? Can I eat some low-moisture part-skim processed mozzarella string cheese and a bowl of mashed potatoes at the same time and get the effect?

Is a cheese curd the solid part of cottage cheese? O hate cottage cheese.

It does become a sloppy mess, especially towards the end. And this is Wendy's poutine I am talking about, so I'm not expecting much difference with Mcdonalds.
 
2013-12-05 10:18:59 PM  
REALLY?!?
Look at what we eat here in America, especially what we eat at fast food places, and you don't think McDonald's wouldn't see the business op? And it'd be cheap for them to make.
I'd be amazed if some variation, since we don't feel like calling it something fancy and foreign, will pop up.

Any ideas what they'd call that variation?
 
2013-12-05 10:19:31 PM  
errrrr... they've had it for years... so has every other chain... BK, KFC, etc...

how can this be "new"...
