McDonald's is trialling garlic fries now and they look absolutely delish

Well now.

THEY’VE ALREADY EXPERIMENTED with sweet potato fries in the recent past – but now McDonald’s are back with something even more exciting.

Today it’s been revealed that they are testing garlic fries in San Francisco.

And they look VERY garlic-y and delicious

It’s a limited trial to four stores in the San Francisco area, as TIME revealed earlier today.

Needless to say, people are losing it

They have brought them in a little bit on the sly, as they seem to have been available to the four restaurants in question for a few weeks now without any fanfare.

This is definitely an interesting development though

As reported elsewhere tonight, McDonald’s has released a statement about the garlic fries – saying they will be rolled out to nearly 250 restaurants if they go down well:

The new fries are made-to-order in McDonald’s kitchens where restaurant employees toss French fries in stainless steel bowls with a purée mix that includes ingredients, such as chopped Gilroy garlic and olive oil, parmesan cheese, parsley and a pinch of salt.

“Gilroy garlic” is the name of the specific type of garlic grown in a town outside San Francisco – and it’s part of their plan to introduce more locally sourced ingredients to their menu.

So it looks like they won’t come all the way to Ireland, but we can now dream

The humble McDonald’s chip looks a whole lot better drenched in garlic, to be fair
