Premium sandwiches, ‘Frork’ the latest at McDonald’s

McDonald’s revealed the Frork, a quasi-utensil designed to scoop up the quality ingredients that may fall while eating a new Signature Crafted Recipes sandwich. The term Frork combines the words “fry” and “fork.”

McDonald’s recently rolled out its Signature Crafted Recipes sandwiches, which feature premium ingredients and unique flavor combinations, including Pico Guacamole, Sweet BBQ Bacon and Maple Bacon Dijon.

Each sandwich is served with toppings for customers to enjoy, even when they fall out. McDonald’s is tackling this so-called dilemma with the Frork, a silicone fork-shaped utensil topped with an opening where the customer can insert three to four fries. The fries become the prongs of the Frork.

“We started with All Day Breakfast, updated our Chicken McNuggets, offered new Mac sandwich sizes for every occasion and now we’re introducing Signature Crafted Recipes because they are inspired by our customers,” said McDonald’s Chef Michael Haracz. “And while the Frork is supremely superfluous, it shows that McDonald’s is willing to do whatever it takes to help them enjoy every last bite.”

The Frork works with all three new Signature Crafted Recipes — premium sandwiches that put flavor at the forefront, also giving customers a choice through recipe, protein and bun selection. Signature Crafted Recipes Extra Value Meals are available for $6.99 at participating McDonald’s in Hawaii.

w Pico Guacamole: Smooth and creamy meets chunky and spicy with white cheddar cheese, guacamole made with 100 percent Hass avocados, freshly prepared Pico de Gallo, crisp leaf lettuce and creamy buttermilk ranch sauce made with real buttermilk and sour cream blended with shallots, garlic and spices. Served with a fresh lime wedge.

w Sweet BBQ Bacon: Sweet BBQ meets savory, with grilled onions, thick-cut Applewood smoked bacon, creamy white cheddar, delicious BBQ sauce, all topped with golden crispy onions.

w Maple Bacon Dijon: A satisfying combination of sweet and savory, with grilled onions, thick-cut Applewood smoked bacon with sweet maple seasoning, white cheddar, crisp leaf lettuce and a creamy Dijon sauce.

Beginning today, 12 restaurants across the state will be giving out Frorks on a first-come, first-served basis (in-store only and while supplies last) to customers who purchase a Signature Crafted Recipes sandwich at the McDonald’s in Waipouli on Kauai.
