McDonald's Will Test Cheesy Bacon Fries In Some Of Its Markets

McDonald's announced they're taking French fries to a whole new level. The fast-food restaurant will offer "cheesy bacon fries" for a limited time in a test market of Northern California and Hawaii.

The popular fries will get a sports-bar twist with a cheddar cheese sauce and smoked bacon bits, according to the company's website.

Sold as a separate item, the cheesy bacon fries will cost somewhere between $3.50 and $3.75, according to Fox News. This isn't the first time McDonald's has branched out with their French fries.

"Two years ago we brought Northern California McDonald's guests Gilroy Garlic Fries for a limited time," said Brad Goldblatt, a McDonald's operator. "We're excited to add Cheesy Bacon Fries to our menus through early 2019."

McDonald's officials said the test market could expand beyond the West Coast test market.
