The Potato Croquette was something I found in Singapore, and tried right before leaving on our last trip. My wife and I spend a long day walking around in the Singapore heat, and we decided to stop into a McDonald's in Bugis (that surprisingly I've never been too before), to share a McChicken set so we could use the fries to review something that my friend sent down from Japan for me to try, more on that in a future review. I had originally thought to try the Chicken Samurai burger, but since it was over $8 for a combo, I refused to pay that much for McDonald's when I've already had the original beef version, so we just stuck with the $4 McChicken combo. When I approached the counter, I saw a large promotional sticker on the counter advertising $1 Potato Croquettes, so I was sure to order one to give it a try. They hadn't promoted this on their main menu, nor did I see anything about it on their Facebook page or website, so it was a little strange to only see it promoted on this one single sticker.

I wasn't sure if the Potato Croquette is going to be a new regular menu side, or if it's one of those limited edition sides, like the Drumlets have been. Since the drumlets ran along side a promo burger and then finished when it did, I imagine if this Croquette is still for sale after the Samurai burgers finish, it might stick around permanently. I'll report back later if it does stick around, but after I took my first bite, I have a feeling I know why this wasn't heavily promoted, and don't expect this to stick around long.
