To help promote their new line of Signature Crafted Recipe Sandwiches, McDonald’s has created the Frork — a fork and french fries hybrid.
What’s the point of this “fundamentally superfluous” utensil? Since the new Pico Guacamole, Maple Bacon Dijon and Sweet Barbecue Bacon sandwiches are loaded with toppings, the Frork will be there to collect any that spills out.
Sure, you could use an ordinary fork to sop up that condiment, but you’d be neglecting yourself sauce-soaked french fries. The Frork will be available at participating restaurants starting May 5th.
