Claim:   McDonald’s restaurants are offering $1 Any Size Fries between May 18 and 31.


Example:   [Collected via e-mail, May 2015]

Is this real?


Origins:   The ubiquitous McDonald’s chain of fast food restaurants is known for their
“$1 Any Size Soft Drink or Coffee” deals, so the hearts of Mickey D’s french fry lovers were momentarily lifted in May 2015 when an image was circulated online showing a similar promotion offering $1 Any Size Fries at McDonald’s between May 18 and 31.

Alas, although some McDonald’s outlets are offering such a deal, it’s not a nationwide promotion. It’s an offering undertaken by select restaurants at a local level, with McDonald’s noting that “Price and promotions are often determined by individual restaurants and local McDonald’s markets.”
