BEING a McDonald’s devoted fan, I truly believed that chilli cheese fries were the best. They were flavourful, the chilli and the melted cheese delighted my taste buds.

But today, my loyalty to this fast food chain has been shattered by the realisation that they have discontinued my favourite fries – the chilli cheese fries. Yes, that’s right.

The beloved fries, with their perfect combination of sliced green chilli and melted cheese, has been scrubbed from the menu.

It may sound basic, but there was just something about the crispy fries that hit – especially when you were in need of a good chilli feed after a night out of partying.

Scrolling through social media this morning, I realised that I am not the only one hurt by the news – but many other people, too.

After realising that the item is no longer on the menu, consumers took to Twitter to question the fast-food restaurant on why they cannot find the fries at restaurants anymore. In response to consumers, the restaurant noted that the chilli cheese fries were on promotion for a limited time only and have since ended. Basically, you’ve had your chips.

“The Chilli Cheese Fries were on promotion for a limited time only and has since ended. We do apologise for any inconvenience this change may have caused you,” they wrote.

In response to the statement by McDonald’s one user wrote: “@McDonalds_SA, the whole country is disappointed by your actions and strategy to discontinue the chilli cheese fries promo so therefore we will be embarking on a nationwide strike to all your outlets and demand that u bring it back these Easter holidays?”

Another user wrote: “Yho McDonald’s has to do something about this and bring them back.” While a third asked the restaurant if it is possible to bring them back because they slap hard.
