What happens when you combine the brothy, salty deliciousness of instant noodles with the satisfying crunch of French fries? Well, those lucky enough to be in Hong Kong right now can find out at their local McDonald’s! Nissin, the maker of Cup Noodles and Top Ramen, has joined forces with McDonald’s to bring to the masses a genius snack: instant noodle-seasoned fries.
Two limited-edition flavors of the fast food giant’s Shake Shake Fries are for sale: black garlic pork broth and sesame oil. If you’re wondering why they’ve got the name Shake Shake Fries, it comes from the fun way you flavor them. The flavored powder is served separately from your fries and it’s your job to shake them together in a paper bag so that each fry is covered in the savory goodness of instant noodle flavor.
Check out the below pack for the black garlic flavor:
According to Insider, you can get the instant ramen flavor pack for free when you upgrade your meal size.
McDonald’s is also selling some cute, limited edition tableware at the same time as their Shake Shake Fries. For for just $12.49 you can buy a Demae Iccho Japanese ceramic tableware set that will last you a whole lot longer than a pack of addictive fries.
The set, which comes with a large bowl and plate, is decorated with Hong Kong’s instant noodle mascot. As an added bonus, the purchase comes with two seasoned fries coupons.
Not in Hong Kong? No worries, you can make similar fries right at home by taking a pack of flavoring from your favorite instant noodle flavor and shaking them up with some fries of your own inside a paper bag.
