McDonald's locations in the San Jose area are now offering Garlic Fries made from California-grown garlic. While McDonald's has experimented with different French fry offerings in the past, this recipe puts a regional twist on the popular side dish.

The Garlic Fries consist of McDonald's iconic French fries topped with chopped garlic and fresh parsley. The garlic used is locally grown in the nearby city of Gilroy, which is known for its garlic and its popular Garlic Festival. In addition to the new toppings, the fries also come in an open paper try instead of the chain's traditional upright packaging.

The new dish demonstrates a growing demand for local flavors and regional offerings that are limited to select locations. The move also demonstrates McDonald's willingness to experiment with some of its more popular menu items.
