(NEW YORK) — Eating on the go has never been easier. Instead of having a friend in the passenger’s seat precariously pass individual fries while the driver inhales the entire container, a nifty little invention now lets drivers have their fair share.
Starting April 24, McDonald’s Japan is offering the limited-edition “potato basket” until the end of May. The red basket is designed to look like the company’s fry packaging and cleverly fits into any car cup holder or bicycle water bottle holder.
A Twitter campaign is launching in conjunction with the release of the potato basket, encouraging users to send in photos of how and where they use the new gadget.
A representative for McDonald’s says the company has no plans to launch the French fry bucket in the United States.
