Did you know McDonald’s Japan releases seasonal Sakura items? We visited and tried two of their Sakura flavored items!
First, we tried the Sakura McFizz! It was so good that we had to order a second. The flavor reminded us of a very light Sprite, with a hint of sweet Sakura. If you’ve never tried Sakura before, it’s like a slightly floral taste with a hint of sweetness.
Next, we tried the limited edition Sakura Shrimp French Fries! Sakura shrimp are a different kind of sakura flavor. They get their name because they’re small with a bright red color similar to sakura flowers. The first step is to add the Sakura Shrimp packet to the fries.
Shake up the bag
Shake, shake, shake~
Now it’s ready to eat! After one bite you’ll find why this is such a popular flavor in Japan. The fries taste similar to Ebi Chips, but with the texture of warm french fries and mmm, it’s delicious! ^.^
