GILROY, Calif. (KGO) -- Garlic lovers, rejoice! After testing at a select few restaurants in the South Bay, McDonald's is rolling out Gilroy Garlic Fries throughout the Bay Area.

The fast food chain says the new fries are made-to-order with a puree mix of garlic from Gilroy, along with other ingredients including olive oil, parmesan cheese, parsley, and a pinch of salt.
