Burger King Changes Their Fries

Burger King is changing their french fries for the first time in 13 years and I squealed in horror when I saw the news because I absolutely love their french fries and if you haven’t had the new fries yet, here’s what’s in store. 

Competition from other fast food chains like Wendy’s and upstarts like Five Guys Burgers and Fries and Smashburger has the french fry battle heating up.

Burger King says they made the new fries thicker with reduced sodium and they added a coating that keeps the hot tasty french fries hotter and crispier longer. Burger King also cooks their fries in trans-fat free vegetable oil and are free of animal products. In case you were wondering, the smallest portion of fries on the $1 value menu has 330 milligrams of sodium and 240 calories.

Technomic, the consulting firm for the fast food giant says that by making the fries a little fatter than a number 2 pencil it makes them easier to eat and “since many of them are consumed in the car with one hand on the steering wheel, that’s probably not a bad idea.” Let me tell you something, I eat in the car and no matter where I go, I never have a problem shoveling fries in my face.

On December 16, to promote the switch up, all seven thousand Burger King locations will be giving away the dollar fries for free. I tried them recently and I haven’t decided if I like them or not. I may need to taste them a few more times just to be sure. Wink, wink. Nudge, nudge.
