McDonalds Japan Rolling out Purple Sweet Potato Milkshake

McDonalds Japan Rolling out Purple Sweet Potato Milkshake
I am a fan of some Asian food, at least when it’s been Americanized. I am not such a fan of some of the strange foods served in Japan, they seem rather gross to me. Case in point: McDonald’s in Japan is set to roll out a new milkshake for fall that is called Purple Sweet Potato, or at least that is what the name translates too.

Video Game Beatdown: Mario vs. Minecraft Steve
Have you ever wondered who would win a fight between two characters from different games? I have, I think that Prophet from Crysis would decimate them all, personally. On a more mundane, I’m not going to kill everyone front, who do you think would win between Mario or Minecraft Steve?
