Poutine? At McDonald's?

Poutine is a Québécois dish consisting of gravy and cheese curd over French fries. It’s popular in Canada, where it’s eaten as fast food and a comfort food. McDonald’s restaurants in Quebec sell it. But now the company plans to make poutine available in all McDonald’s outlets throughout Canada. A serving will cost $3.99.

You know that the actual food product will look nothing like any pictures taken of them by the company but the actual product does look a cold Canadian during a spell of - 30 degree weather. It would be great after a game of Curling for sure though it's tough to pass up a curling club cheeseburger.

Now I can finally say to someone who asks what it is - "Just shut up and eat your Poutine, boy. It's good for you."

Apparently Wendy's has poutine too. I always just look at the double burgers with cheese. They also have a campaign to make Poutine the national dish. I of course give my first vote to the humble Perogy but I can get behind this whole poutine thing. I am pro-poutine. Way to go French Canada for finally contributing to this country...I KID I KID. Merci Beaucoup.

What kind of fucked up made up word is POUTITION??
It doesn't even make any sense.
Boy, look at those burgers. That's just good eatin'. If it wasn't 150 below I would warm up the car for twenty minutes for the terrifying ten minute drive on the icy streets with the other maniacs. It's almost worth it. Where are those delivery drones when I need one. Future, you are useless to me. Keep your empty promises to yourselves.

Gravy and Fries is something that one of our local chains called Tony's has always had on there menu for years. No cheese on them but can be request am sure. : )

The curds really make the difference when they get all melted between the hot fries and gravy. Very good at the Hockey arena. They do it well because it's cheap and filling and easy to serve out of a little arena concession.
