Venezuela handled a problem that was thrown there way surprisingly well. due to a shipping problem over 100 McDonald's ran out of potatoes to make french fries. So instead of the regular french fries they started deep frying Venezuelan specials yuca root and arepa flatbread.
The multi-national food chain is claiming they cannot get potatoes into Venezuela even though other food chains aren't having this problem. Many theories have been concocted by many people and even the president of Venezuela has responded to the potato crisis. A state sponsored news outlet named Telesur has published a story titled, "McDonald's joins economic war against Venezuela,"
People have been making too big of a deal over some potatoes. Everyone should look at the bright side. McDonalds around the world should start serving not only american food but also local food from there country. This would be healthier and the food would be fresher then other imported goods.
