THIS IS NOT A DRILL.
We are very happy to report that McDonald’s will start selling bacon-cheese fries in 2019. After weeks of speculation, a source finally confirmed the news to Business Insider.
The McDonald's worker said “he was concerned about the possibility of confusion behind the scenes as workers learned to prepare the new dish, which he said had a new type of bacon.”
Wait--did he say “a new type of bacon?!” The plot thickens.

Though the company has yet to officially announce the new menu item, this statement seems like confirmation enough:
"I'm afraid I'll have to provide a cheesy no comment," a McDonald's representative told Business Insider in an email on Friday. "At this moment, our kitchens are bacon-ing something together. But we're not yet ready to share the gouda news."
The fries are already being tested in some locations in California and Hawaii--and they look glorious.
I mean, you guys:
No word yet on when the fries will be rolled out nationally, but the source told Business Insider that it would be “early next year.”
