McDonald’s is testing garlic fries at four restaurants in the San Francisco Bay Area, the fast-food chain confirmed to TIME.

Here’s a description of the new menu item, dubbed “Gilroy Garlic Fries,” from a news release:

The garlic is grown in Gilroy, California, known as the “The Garlic Capital of the World,” which is about two hours south of San Francisco.

If the trial is successful at these four South Bay restaurants, then the chain will start offering it at the nearly 250 restaurants throughout the Bay Area in August.
