LANSING, Mich. — HopCat crowns Shakshuka Spiced Fries as the winner of the ‘Decide the Fries’ contest. French fry fans voted on three never-before-seen flavors throughout September to decide which would become a permanent menu feature in January, alongside their signature Cosmik fries.

“After researching 150 seasonings, we wanted to introduce a flavor that people might not be familiar with and Shakshuka does just that. The side of cheese sauce complements the seasoning perfectly,” says Shawn Blonk, Senior Director of Food & Beverage. “We are excited to bring this popular Libyan spiced fry to the menu permanently.”
