“Un Nuevo Sabor que te Encantará” / markets in everything fail

Earlier this month, McDonalds of Venezuela re-introduced the French fry to its menus after a lengthy absence where only yucca fries were available (Jeez I would LOVE for USA Mickey D to have yucca fries. They are the bomb).


Or I guess to be more accurate, the Venezuela Fry (“100% made in Venezuela). Yes this is Chavismo’s version of the US Congress’s “freedom fries”.

Early reviews are not good.

And there appears to be a slight gap between the ad and the actual product:


As Raul puts it, “I guess these are like your mother’s french fries, if your mother was a lazy cook and she really, really hated you”.
