The idea sounds icky: Dipping french fries in chocolate sauce. But wait a minute! Sweet and salty? Hey, this might work. Or... maybe not.
The chocolate is severed in an edible tart shell.
You can see that above.
You squirt the chocolate out of a little packet.
That, you can see right here:
Potato chips with chocolate are definitely a thing (not a mainstream thing!) and have gone on sale in Japan. So, in that regards, this isn't totally off-the-wall.
Some of the Lotteria patrons who've posted images of the fries on Twitter certainly seem to enjoy the combination. Others don't!
"Well, I tried the Dipping Fries," wrote one Twitter user. "I'm speechless."
"Dis-gusting," wrote another Twitter user who ordered the fries. Some called them "questionable."
Then, there were those who thought the French fries with chocolate tasted okay. "They're better than I thought they'd be hahahahahaha," wrote one. "The Dipping Fries tasted more delicious than I thought they would," wrote another, while there were those adding that they were "relatively tasty."
