I hear they are going to cremate him, then squeeze him into the casket.
 
2007-06-07 11:26:06 PM
You failed to mention that he was 91 when he died.

(I'll have the cheese fries, a cheese dog, and a coke, please)
 
2007-06-07 11:52:41 PM
He must have been getting crazy with the Cheez Whiz...
 
2007-06-08 05:21:27 AM
Christ in a side-car, if I could live to 91 on a diet of those two things, sign me up.

first the Captian Crunch creator goes, and now this? I do not welcome the coming trifecta.
 
2007-06-08 05:28:40 AM
so wait a second... the same guy who "invented" mcdonalds french fries was also responsible for cheeze in a can? hmm.... interesting.
 
2007-06-08 05:31:18 AM
this guy needs a hero tag! i for one salute you mr tasty fries and cheez whiz guy!!!
 
2007-06-08 05:35:09 AM

He also broke ground by hiring women, violating the fast-food company's rules, his wife said.

oh man, i can just imagine how bad that would be for publicity
 
2007-06-08 05:54:29 AM
The worst poutine I ever had was in a restaurant in Laval. They used a cheez-whiz knock-off on the fries.
 
2007-06-08 05:59:03 AM
If fries already exist, how exactly does one "invent" them being served at McDonalds?

I'm going to invent fries from my kitchen! I should patent it!

MADISON, Wis. - Edwin Traisman, a food scientist who created the process for freezing McDonald's french fries and helped develop Cheez Whiz, has died at age 91.

Dude, I live in the UK, home of (allegedly) disgusting food, but that shiate, man, how could it be any worse than it is already? I just see a picture of of that stuff and I wanna hurl!

/Goes back to munching his black-pudding.

He figured out a method to freeze potatoes without them turning black and inedible.

They need to go back to frying them in lard and skip all that vegetable oil, no trans-fat nonsense that just makes them bleck.
 
2007-06-08 06:17:15 AM
It's obvious as to why he lived to 91. He never touched his inventions knowing just how bad they were for you.
 
2007-06-08 06:21:38 AM
Someone please tell the admins to change the tage to sad or hero!

Granted lard does make their fries taste better, but they would lose a large chunk of customer base. Anyone who doesn't eat pork products for religious/personal reasons, those that don't eat animal products, or limit their animal products to things like dairy & eggs, etc.

With their continued alienation of the public through other actions, this would be yet another nail in their corporate coffin. I'm not saying that McDonald's is a healthy place to eat at, but I go there from time to time.

Rock on, you magnificent bastard!! I need a sandwich from Pat's King of Steaks.
 
2007-06-08 06:41:09 AM
Gross.

(The food, not that he died. Dying is ok.)
 
2007-06-08 06:43:26 AM
HE DIED AT THE AGE OF 91....
/An inconvenient truth..?

I still want to know how he got the whiz so thick
 
2007-06-08 07:42:43 AM
Ok, now that I've read the article, you all have humbled me.

Apparently, creating a frozen storage method for potatoes equals "Inventing McDonalds French fries".

You are all so right, and I am so wrong.

Cheez Whiz makes an appearance in the movie The Blues Brothers. Elwood has returned to his apartment building with his brother Jake; one of his fellow residents, playing cards, hollers, "Did you get me my Cheez Whiz, boy?" Elwood tosses the man a can of Easy Cheese brand cheese product that he managed to pick up.

Blue Brothers trifecta still going on?

McDonald's fries already contain a beef extract. They were sued and lost some years ago for falsely advertising that their fries were vegetarian.

It's always a good thing when the food you eat was invented by a scientist, not a chef/cook.
 
2007-06-08 07:50:55 AM
I still don't understand why Cheez Whiz contains anchovies.

Oh well. Soy un perdedor.

French fries should be made from two ingredients, potatoes and oil. but NOOOOO.....

Here are Macdonalds french fries ingredients, from their own website, below. Note that their beef flavoring contains milk and wheat dirivities, so watch out allergy folks. Nice to know they have an anti-foaming ingredient...

French Fries:
Potatoes, vegetable oil (partially hydrogenated soybean oil, natural beef flavor (wheat and milk derivatives)*, citric acid (preservative), dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate (maintain color), dimethylpolysiloxane (antifoaming agent)), salt. Prepared in vegetable oil ((may contain one of the following: Canola oil, corn oil, soybean oil, hydrogenated soybean oil, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, partially hydrogenated corn oil with TBHQ and citric acid added to preserve freshness), dimethylpolysiloxane added as an antifoaming agent). *CONTAINS: WHEAT AND MILK (Natural beef flavor contains hydrolyzed wheat and hydrolyzed milk as starting ingredients.)
 
2007-06-08 08:44:37 AM
McDonald's fries good? Maybe. I wouldn't know because I've never been able to taste them through the pound of salt that they put on them.
 
2007-06-08 08:55:49 AM
Cheez Wiz is disgusting...ugh. I hate this guy, if only because they now use Cheez Wiz instead of real cheese when you ask for it on something in fast food restaurants and diners.

On the other hand...McDonalds fries are wonderful, so I guess that makes him OK in my book.

/Cheez Wiz happened at Arby's
//Then it happened at Perkins

2007-06-08 09:00:48 AM
Did you get me my Cheez Whiz, boy?
 
2007-06-08 09:08:24 AM
"...at age 91."

Not surprisingly, developing food products didn't stop him from living a full and productive life.

The Wisconsin Meat Industry Hall of Fame won't let in just anyone. That's quite an honor.

Since he invented Cheez Whiz, this man is pretty much responsible for the classic Philly Cheesesteak.

/Whiz wit'?

McDonald's fries, Cheez Whiz scientist dies


Wonder if he would be happy being remembered as a 'Cheese Whiz Scientist'.

Then Traisman wandered into a McDonald's restaurant near Chicago to ask about opening a franchise, said his wife of 44 years, Dorothy. He approached a man who was sweeping and asked for the manager. The man said the manager wasn't in, but he might be able to help.

"It turned out it was Mr. Ray Kroc himself," Dorothy Traisman said.


Those were different times, with different CEOs.

May he rest in grease...I mean peace.

Truly, some of the best times in my life involved McDonalds french fries. 91 is a very nice run.
 
2007-06-08 11:12:13 AM
91. If I could go 91 on McDonalds french fries... mmm.

But... since when is cutting potatoes in thin slices and throwing them in oil considered an invention?
