Early reviews suggest the combination, while perhaps not to everyone’s taste, works surprisingly well.

“Salt and chocolate complement each other quite well,” Brian Ashcraft wrote on the Kotaku website.

“Since the fries are served hot, when you squirt on the sauce, the warm fries heat up the sauce. This causes the chocolate smell to become even stronger and more noticeable.”

Japanese consumers won’t be able to indulge their sweet tooth for long, however: the chocolate fries will only be available until around mid-February, according to Rocket News.
