McDonald’s Made Something Called a Frork, Because Why Not

McDonald’s Made Something Called a Frork, Because Why Not

Since the dawn of recorded history, humanity has always documented the important dates that drove us forward as a species. Monday, May 1st, 2017 will now be one of those days, because McDonald’s has gifted mankind with the Frork: the fusion of a french fry and a fork that will clearly usher in a new age of condiment consumption.

It may be a joke, but the Frork is very real. Via NBC News, McDonald’s has released a new infomercial-style promo for the Frork, which uses a real infomercial pitchman, Anthony Sullivan, as he enthusiastically makes the case for the Frork as a substitute eating utensil. However, the best use of the Frork is probably limited to cleaning up after topping spills.

The Frork was created primarily as an excuse to promote the new Signature Crafted Recipes line-up at McDonald’s. However, the promotional team may have done their job too well, as the Frork is all anyone can talk about in the Nerdist offices today. Perhaps it will even lead to a new era of food and utensil hybrids that are specifically designed to help us consume other food items. What’s next, Chicken McNugget chopsticks? (And would they be called Chixstixs? The mind, it reels.)

Fans and hungry customers will get their chance to buy Frorks on May 5th, when the Signature Crafted Recipes selections go on sale. But the Frorks will only be available in a limited supply, although we expect that to change if they turn out to be a popular request.

What do you think about the Frork? And what other food and utensil hybrids should McDonald’s create in the future? Unleash your imaginations in the comment section below!
