Japan Today describes the reintroduced potato product as “equivalent to two orders of large fries and comes in a container so comically huge you could just stick your face directly into it like a pig at a trough, if that’s your thing.”

This order of fries is New York City’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s worst nightmare–an order of fries that carry with it a massive 1142 calories and nearly 61 grams of fat.

The Mega Potato consists of 350 grams of potato and is larger than most items on the franchise’s extensive menu.

For those who like to experiment with their french fries, McDonald’s Japan also offers french fries that come with a packet of “butter soy sauce”  flavoring. The website describes the flavorful concoction as “The butter flavor is full-bodied, savory taste of soy sauce is matched exquisitely, I further enhances the taste of the Mac fries.”

Japan Today notes, The Mega Potato will set you back 490 yen and also cost you a large chunk of your dignity and possibly a few years of your life.
