Imagine getting to enjoy your favourite fast food meal at home at any time of the day

Although you can just head out to a drive-thru and grab your favourite set, sometimes it's nice to be able to have extras in the freezer that you can whip up in no time.

These frozen foods have been said to taste most similar to well-loved fast food meals. Plus, they can be found in many grocery stores throughout Malaysia:

1. Simplot FrenchFries Shoestring

Simplot's FrenchFries have been said to be the most similar tasting to McDonald's famous fries and there's a simple explanation for this.

Turns out, the frozen food company – Simplot –  is actually the major supplier of McDonald's fries! Just be sure to get the 'shoestring' version.

2. First Pride Tempura Chicken Nuggets

First Pride Tempura Chicken Nuggets previously went viral as many said that they taste very similar to McDonald's nuggets.

According to some, First Pride frozen foods are actually manufactured by MacFood Services Sdn Bhd, which is McDonald's Malaysia's main processing supplier for its protein products such as beef, chicken, and fish.

Some also mentioned that the 'Home Spiced Tempura Chicken Nuggets' are a better option for those who like their nuggets spicy.

3. Simplot Hash Browns

There's nothing quite as comforting as having a warm, greasy hash brown for breakfast and McDonald's is probably one of the best fast food chains that do them well.

If you're craving for some, Simplot Hash Browns are said to taste the most similar to them!

4. First Pride Spicy Chicken Katsu Crispy

If you're a Spicy Chicken McDeluxe kinda person, try out First Pride Chicken Katsu Crispy in the spicy flavour. Some say that if you pop it in an air-fryer, you get a less oily version of your fave meal!

5. McCain Spiral Fries

Similar to Simplot, McCain is also said to be one of the suppliers of McDonald's potatoes. These spiral fries taste very similar to the fast food chain's famous curly fries!
