McDonald’s restaurants throughout Northern Nevada are “thinking outside the fry box” as they introduced an exciting new menu item.
“This has been such a huge hit in the Sacramento market and in Asia so we are excited to bring this to the ‘Greatest Little City in the World’ so our guests can enjoy customizing their fries and McNuggets in a fun way.”
The new Shakin’ Flavor seasoning available this week allows guests to customize McDonald’s World Famous Fries and Chicken McNuggets with one of three delicious seasoning flavors: Garlic Parmesan, Spicy Buffalo or Chipotle Barbecue. Each bold new flavor enhances the great taste of these favorite McDonald’s items.
Upon ordering Shakin’ Flavor for fries or McNuggets, guests will receive an additional bag and seasoning packet of their chosen flavor. Customers can then tear open the packet, pour the seasoning and fries or McNuggets into the bag and shake up the flavor for a fun and interactive taste experience.
“We are thrilled to have this new offering come to our customers here in Northern Nevada,” said local McDonald’s restaurant owner Robert Humason. “This has been such a huge hit in the Sacramento market and in Asia so we are excited to bring this to the ‘Greatest Little City in the World’ so our guests can enjoy customizing their fries and McNuggets in a fun way.”
The new Shakin’ Flavor offering will also be available in the San Francisco, Sacramento, Chico, and Fresno markets. This fun, new menu item has been a customer favorite in McDonald’s restaurants in Asia for the past decade. The menu item came from popular seasoned fries in Asia known as Shake Shake, which first debuted in 2005 in Hong Kong before spreading into other countries including China, India and Australia.
“McDonald’s is known for having great fries and McNuggets. With this new offering, our customers now have the option to fully customize those items with the seasoning of their choice,” said Humason.
The first chance to try Shakin’ Flavor seasoning will be on February 16. Guests can receive a free seasoning of their choice with any purchase of McNuggets or fries. The seasoning packets can then be purchased a la carte for 25 cents.
To celebrate the arrival of Shakin’ Flavor seasoning, the Reno/Tahoe market will host a Hoe Down themed Launch Party on Saturday, February 21 from 4-8 p.m. at the McDonald’s restaurant located at 5148 Mae Ann Boulevard in Reno. The party will feature a Shakin’ Flavor Food Truck passing out free samples, as well as a photo booth, games and activities and a mechanical bull for participants to ride.
