Think of it as an adult Happy Meal prize. McDonald's is tackling this so-called dilemma with the Frork, a silicone fork-shaped utensil topped with an opening where the customer can insert three-to-four World Famous Fries. Then, the diner can carry on, scooping up wayward condiments and eating them with the "Frork".
Fast food chain McDonald's is breaking into verdant new ground with a whimsical infomercial introducing the Frork, an entirely unnecessary utensil that uses French fries as prongs.
Product pitchman Anthony Sullivan makes his best case for the piece of flatware in a tie-in with the restaurant's introduction of a new line of sandwiches. You've always used your fries to mop up the "topping droppings" that ooze out as you bite into your burger, right? "This is a real problem. Probably not", Sullivan admits.
"The Frork even works in the dark!" In true infomercial style, the ad features a toll-free number that gives callers a chance to get a coupon for a free Signature Crafted Recipes sandwich or a free Frork (the offers have now been exhausted).
On May 5, Frorks will be given away at select McDonald's locations nationwide with the purchase of a Signature Crafted Recipes sandwich, while supplies last.
There are three varieties of sandwiches: Pico Guacamole, Sweet BBQ Bacon, and Maple Bacon Dijon.
