Earlier this year we were lucky enough to try to new McDonald's international menu items that had finally made their way to the United States.

Well, now the McDonald’s global headquarters restaurant in Chicago is now reportedly offering sweet potato fries as part of its revolving menu of international items.

So those are the fries. I had a friend who used to work at the McDonald's headquarters in Chicago, so she got to try all of the new food. And the new food they had usually made its way to main menus after a WHILE.

So there's definitely hope that the sweet potato fries will make their way to Rockford. But most likely it wont be for a while. A representative for McDonald’s was not available to comment on whether or not the company’s sweet potato fries might make it to the national menu in the near future.
