Single serving of McDonald’s french fries cost $133 in Venezuela

Could you tell the difference between this and an organic alternative? Such is the economic crisis Venezuela finds itself in that a single large serving of McDonald’s french fries would set you back $133. Venezuelans may have cheered when the fast food giant promised the return of the fries 10 months off the menu, but at 800 bolivars they’re simply unaffordable. The fries are so expensive because state-imposed current controls have forced McDonalds to source the potatoes from Venezuelan farms rather than import them. For nearly a year McDonald’s has had a french fry substitute derived from cassava, and that was not all too popular. Not only that but the burgers come without lettuce and tomato.
