The MOS Walker

05/08/06 | by silverso | Categories: McDonald's


This has to be one of the most brilliant innovations in fast food to come along in the last 30 years! A cup lid with a deep dent for fry storage allowing you to carry both food and drink in one hand. So simple, yet so ingenious. I wish I could meet the person at MOS Burger responsible and shake his or her hand.



I can't help but wonder why a Japanese fast food company would come out with such a thing in a country where walking and eating at once is taboo. Could this be some kind of secret ploy to start of a new revolution in Japanese culture? I hope so, but sadly I fear that the MOS Walker will most likely be overlooked and lost to the ages.

Doesn’t seem convenient to me.
First of all, what happens with the super-sized quantities. You’ll need an extremely large cup.
And secondly, the heat of the fry compartment will heat up the soda underneath.
Do you think McDonalds would ever apply one of these MOS Walkers?

see that’s the thing, i’ve seen those signs up for months (and assume that they’ve been available) yet i’ve never seen anyone actually order one. brilliant though it may be, the MOS walker is most likely due to languish in neglect on these shores

Don’t be so negative Jan! Yeah, of course you need a larger cup, but here in Japan the word “supersize” has never been uttered inside a fast food joint. Portions are all much smaller than back home. Even a normal large sized cup would be welcome. I don’t think heat transfer would be a serious issue. As for McDonald’s, I don’t know. The real tragedy would be if MOS held back the patent on this new technological marvel and kept its competitors for using it overseas where it would actually be appreciated.

Mehan, yeah I’ve never seen anyone order one or walk down the street with one. The sad thing is, I don’t even like MOS Burger fries (I prefer the giant onion rings), so even I’m not likely to ever use the damn thing.

Actually, there’s a chain restaurant here in South Korea that has these. You can get them with fries, chicken tenders, coconut shrimp, and a few other things I can’t recognize. It’s awesome on the walk home from work.
