McDonald’s are putting Halloumi fries on their summer menu for the first time ever. They’ll be available both in portions of four for £2.49 and in a sharebox for £6.49, until September 2
It was announced at the beginning of the summer that the fries would be added to McDonald’s menu as part of their celebrations of Italy, Spain and Cyprus, and they finally are available to buy at the chain from today.
The fries consist of Halloumi cheese covered in a light batter, and come with a tomato dip.
People who tried them ahead of their release have described the snack as ‘game changers.’
They come on their own in a regular portion of four sticks, or a larger, sharing, portion.

The first one is the Spicy Spanish Stack, which comes with two beef patties, chilli cheddar, red onions, spicy tomato sauce and lettuce and is served in a bun seasoned with paprika.
Meanwhile, the other burger is called the Chicken Fiesta and includes a chicken fillet topped with chorizo and accompanying veggies with a spicy salsa sauce and a bun seasoned with paprika and chilli.
Both burgers will set you back £5.39 on their own or £6.89 as part of a meal deal.
The summer menu also includes a new drink from today, a Spanish Fruit Punch inspired by Sangria. A large drink will cost you £2.61, while a medium will cost £2.29.
The items will be on the menu for the rest of the summer, until September 2.
As the ‘Taste of Spain and Cyprus’ menu makes its debut today, customers will have to wave goodbye to the Italian menu that was launched earlier this year.
