frankly, that sounds delicious. on the other hand i could make better fries/my own seasoning
 
2014-05-09 12:27:06 AM  
Why would it be blasphemy? You can still get their normal fries, right?
 
2014-05-09 12:31:12 AM  
Curly fries?

Yeah, I still don't care. I tried! Really did! But, nope ...

Those rat bastards tore my heart out when they took away their hot mustard sauce. I hope they don't think they can just come crawling back to me now with their damn seasoned fries and all will be forgiven.
 
2014-05-09 01:00:04 AM  
How about neither?

Step 1: make fries
Step 2: toss in seasoning

This is neither a genius creation, nor blasphemy. Sure it's tasty. Why are we even bothering to discuss this?

Thank God, their fries have been bland as hell since they changed the oil. Like a big box of greasy dog dicks.

It's McDonalds. They don't crawl. More like "waddle".

That's why I bake my dog dicks instead of frying.
It really brings out the flavor.

Dicks come in a big greasy bag, not a box.

But they have honey mustard now, which is 100 times better because they can shove more HFCS down your gullet.

Seasoned fries aren't very good. Nor are they a new idea at McDonald's. It's mostly just colored salt anyway.

Sometimes they add that stuff that they put on BBQ potato chips.

That's mostly colored salt. There's a small ammount of flavors, but it's nothing like the ratio you get with pesto or a curry.

Because ... WE don't have to make it? Because SOMEONE ELSE is making those fries?

Yeah, that's it.

Montreal Chicken Seasoning.  Any brand, really, or make your own.  It is the very best thing on fries.
 
2014-05-09 06:42:44 AM  
The salt in my McFries is too damn high!

/seriously, i order with no salt. Fries should taste like potatoes.

They experimented with that here in Norway a few months ago as part of the El Maco burger combo. I tried them....unimpressed. Too salty and disproportionately spicy.

Did you honestly say dicks don't come in a box? For real?

They're just freaking potatoes. That's all. Potatoes.

They are not a lifestyle. They are not religious icons. They hold no pathway to knowledge. They will not change your life, make you attractive, or make you popular.

They are potatoes, grown in the ground by farmers, sliced by machines, frozen, fried in vegetable oil, and placed in a container for sale.

Potatoes. Just potatoes.

Sorry. My ex was a big, greasy bag. Her box wasn't much better. I've been trying to forget.

Weirdo... I always get a bunch of those little salt packets and add a hell of a lot extra on top of what they come with by default!

When I make "frits" at home, I'm lucky if I get any. so much beter than normal fries, letting the potatoes soak in water, making them really crunchy and light. Almost worth a trip to Belgium for some.

Call me when they bring back their original deep fried apple pies.

Any eatery that sells seasoned fries should be immediately closed and nuked from orbit by the health dept as a risk to the public good.

Apparently, I'm in the minority, because seasoned fries farking suck and should not be allowed. French fry taste comes from the oil/grease you fry them in, not from all the farking shiat you put on them after (garlic salt, old bay, etc). If you cant make a fry taste good right out of the fryer, you're doing it wrong and dont deserve to make food for public consumption.
 
2014-05-09 07:08:55 AM  
Here's a thought, instead of changing fry flavors why not go back to your original recipe before you decided on the 'more healthy' route? You're McDonalds ffs. To hell with the fatties with no self control.
 
2014-05-09 07:12:34 AM  
Waste of time when the burgers still taste like ass.

Chili cheese fires, bacon cheese fries.  Cholesterol is just another food group

Meh. As long as they don't try to force it on you like burger king does with satisfries in their kids meals I don't care.

Now if they offered sweet potatoe fries I might be a little excited

Confirmation that yes, seasonings from McBarf is blasphemous

While it sounds delicious, these days, I don't eat/order fries anymore.

I know McDonalds (at least the last time I went which has admittedly been a chunk of years) has a fry stand (maybe more than one?) in Disneyland. I dunno, I guess after eating a shiat ton of fries when I was pregnant, instead of my burger, I just don't want them anymore.

What makes you so familiar with dog dicks?  Are you a dog dick connoisseur?  Or just a dog dick snob?

All places should have little pouches of Tony's seasoning.  Maybe cavender's too.

KFC had sweet potato fries a couple of summers ago and were sending them out with their spicy mayo. Omg, soooooo yummy!

How about just going back to the 1970s recipe?
