Burger King Singapore's Genius New Menu Item Combines Ice Cream And Fries

We've all done it. Whether it's a frosty at Wendy's or a sundae from Burger King or McDonald's. There's something uniquely tasty about dipping a hot, salty, greasy fry into a cold soft serve. It's hard to explain if you haven't experienced it for yourself. Burger King Singapore is banking on the idea that enough of their customers have tried fries in ice cream and liked it or at least like the idea of it. The company is going out on a limb and offering a hot fudge sundae with fries already in it! Called Mashed Up Fries, the dessert is available for a limited time at Burger King locations in Singapore for $2.90 (via AsiaOne).

"Mashed Up Fries" might be a bit of a misnomer, according to 8Days. The site says that the word "sundae" should be somewhere in the name instead of just calling it Mashed Up Fries, which could be confusing. But, they also note that fans of the combo will save money by purchasing the Mashed Up Fries over a small fries and sundae separately, which is normally $2 and $1.90, respectively. So, what are reviewers saying about the new concoction?

How does Mashed Up Fries taste?

One reviewer, Siti Hawa, tried the Mashed Up Fries for Mothership, saying that there was less ice cream than the menu photo showed, and the cup was hot due to the fries. Hawa advised those who order the Mashed Up Fries to ask for a fork if they don't want to get ice cream all over their hands, and also to keep in mind that the fries will only stay hot for so long before the ice cream turns them cold and soggy. A lot to keep in mind for those who prefer hot, crunchy fries dipped in their cold ice cream.

Over on Twitter, @SarahColdheart tried the Mashed Up Fries and said the fries didn't taste salted enough, suggesting that a separate purchase of fries and sundae would deliver the proper salty to sweet ratio. We'll have to wait and see if Burger King Singapore is the test market for Burger King U.S. locations. Would you order a french fry chocolate sundae?
