McDonald’s added a new kind of fry to its menu, but it comes with a twist.

McDonald’s recently put Twister Fries on its menu in Singapore and the Philippines, according to Refinery29.

People in those countries celebrated the fries in Instagram posts.

The fries originally launched in 2015 but recently resurfaced, Business Insider reported.

Here’s how Business Insider defined the fries:

“While you’re over here, chewing on those lame, old-school straight and salty munchies, your counterparts in Singapore and the Philippines are chowing down on what are known as ‘Twister Fries’ — the fancier, turnt-up version of the OG staple,” according to Business Insider.

The new fries won't be available in the United States or the United Kingdom, though, Refinery29 reported.

“So for now we'll have to make due with the classic spears. But that won't stop us from hoping that this twisted take makes its way stateside, stat. Could summer 2017 be the summer of Twister Fries? Only time will tell,” according to Refinery29.

McDonald’s make other changes to its menu recently. As the Deseret News reported, the fast food chain has begun phasing out the Hi-C Orange drink, replacing it with Sprite TropicBerry soda.

McDonald’s also launched a new device called a “Frork,” which uses fries like a fork, the Deseret News reported.

    I'm glad they won't be replacing the 'lame, old-school straight and salty munchies'. That's the only thing keeping my business. If the other chains hadn't changed Mickey would be far behind the curve. The burgers in other places are far superior, but their fries suck...Hardee's please wake up!!
