Yes, McDonald’s Twister Fries are back! But, for a VERY limited time only, that’s why they’re urging us to “Prioritize the Twister Fries”. It’ll be available until
August 25th only September 16, 2012 (EXTENDED!).
I LOVE McDo’s Twister Fries, so when I found out that they’re bringing them back, I couldn’t wait any longer. Last night, we had some delivered, along with their Big ‘N Tasty burger (which is now my favorite among McDonald’s burgers – will blog about this next).
The Twister Fries are priced at Php 59 when you order à la carte, Php 78 with regular Coke McFloat or Php 88 with a Monster Coke McFloat.
Before I ordered, I already saw the ads and people on my list sharing photos of their Twister Fries orders. I thought that for Php 59, I will get a large order or serving since it was the only option for à la carte. Well, I ordered 3 ’cause I thought our parents can just share – I don’t want them eating a heavy meal before bed. Here’s what we got:
Oh, since the photo above might look like the boxes were big, I took a photo beside a regular pack of Sky Flakes. Pardon the quality – I only used my phone.
We were disappointed. For Php 59, I don’t think it was worth my money. I remember their old packaging (photo below was from a delivery in 2010). It cost Php 58 for that much Twister Fries.
I called 8-MCDO to verify that there’s no other serving size. I thought that they might have given us the smaller size. Nope, they only have 1 serving size for these Twister Fries.
Alright, I know, sometimes, this really happens. For a food place, especially McDonald’s that serves fast food, the quality of food you’d get would depend on the source branch’s maintenance. But, I’m not happy about McDonald’s changing the packaging ’cause you’d get fewer fries included in every serving. They cut out the top of the front, so there’s a small space available for your Twister Fries. Sneaky, sneaky.
Don’t worry, McDonald’s. We still love your Twister Fries. But, I don’t think we’ll have some delivered again. And we sincerely hope that when you bring back the Twister Fries next time, please don’t be too stingy. Nakakabitin eh!
Maybe, when we visit one of your other branches in the next few days before the end of the “limited time” you’re offering this, we’ll order them again and, MAYBE, we’ll be served more than what we got last night. However, Ken and I agreed that, for now, we’ll get more value from KFC’s Bucket of Fries, which is sold at Php 58. Just sayin’.
