GILROY GARLIC FRIES
I wanted to see what all the hubbub was about. McDonald's has cashed in on a West Coast food staple that we are all familiar with. They are selling 'Gilroy Garlic Fries". They have been around these parts for quit a while. The San Francisco Giants have been selling garlic fries since the Candlestick days. Gilroy claims to be the garlic capital of the world. McDonald's with their marketing genius have cashed in on an addicting burger accompaniment. This is from Micky D's website; "Our World Famous Fries® made even more delicious with a savory blend of ingredients like olive oil, Parmesan, parsley and garlic from the Garlic Capital of the World, Gilroy, California."
A medium order of garlic fries sent me back a whopping three dollars and 26 cents. I got them to go but tried one before I got in the car. The temperature was not very hot. They claim each batch is made to order. O.K. It took me exactly 4 minutes to get home. These fries were soggy and room temperature. Yes, there was a good amount of garlic and cheese. It did taste okay if you could get past the temperature and sogginess. Will I return and give them another chance. Probably not....."Fool me once".
