What – you thought I was KIDDING?!?!?!?!

It’s An Asian “Potato Party!”

Here is the story from eater: “Because ordering obscene amounts of french fries at McDonald’s and sharing them among friends is apparently a thing kids are doing in Japan and Korea these days, a group of kids recently got kicked out of a McDonald’s in Korea for ordering $250 worth of fries!”

According to “RocketNews24”, McDonald’s has recently unleashed a promotion in Japan and Korea offering a large-size order of fries on the cheap, which naturally means that teenagers going in and order as many as possible. They are called “Potato Parties!”

This particular group supposedly dropped 270,000 won ($250) on McDonald’s fries, spreading them out across a large table on their trays. This, of course, caused a lot of delays at the restaurant and a whole lot of anger until “a McDonald’s worker decided he had had enough of these shenanigans and told the kids, ‘Stop causing trouble, you brats! Get out of here!'”

But no, these french fry hounding teens are not been treated as the heroes they are. As it so happens, the Internet has apparently sided with the Man on this one, which some commenters writing that the kids should be reported to McDonald’s headquarters and others writing, “I’d cry if this happened in my local store.”

But There’s More!

Here is ANOTHER great story from “RocketNews24”!

You know that we at RocketNews24 love to do crazy things with McDonald’s foods, like cooking a Big Mac Value Meal in a rice cooker or ordering different burgers without the buns.This time, we did a little experimenting with 10 McDonalds hamburgers and a unique cooking product that we’ve been fascinated with, called “Matomeruko Easy” (which would roughly translate to “Easy Mix-N-Solidify Powder” in English).

The “Matomeruko Easy” is an amazing powder which, according to the sales copy, lets you “mix and combine your usual meal into a soft solid form“. It’s supposed to be very easy to use – all you need to do is mix food, water and the powder in a blender, and voila, you have a new food with a jello-like consistency. But is this powder for real? We decided to find out by buying 10 McDonald’s hamburgers and making one giant hamburger out of them using the Matomeruko powder.

Here’s what we did. First, we separated the 10 hamburgers into 4 different parts – 2 separate piles of buns, the hamburger patties and the pickles. Then, we processed each part in a blender, and then we put all the components together to create a giant-sized hamburger. The most difficult part actually was blending the buns.

When we just threw the buns and the water and powder into the blender, the blades didn’t rotate smoothly at all, and we ended up having to adjust the amount of bread and water multiple times before we were able to blend the ingredients. It wasn’t exactly easy, but in the end, we managed to create one huge hamburger as planned!
