frankly, that sounds delicious. on the other hand i could make better fries/my own seasoning

Why would it be blasphemy? You can still get their normal fries, right?

How about neither?

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?

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.

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.

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.

YES, YES, YES!!! They have been just sad since they tried to appease the vegans.  What were they thinking?  Why would a burger place ever give a damn about a group of people that at most would only rarely ever eat there?

"Hey, lets cater to a group of people that hate us by screwing up the only reason everybody else loves us!"

I seriously think people still like their fries because they want to think they still taste as good as they did when they were kids.

Study it out.  Cholesterol is obviously key to maintaining proper lubrication in your joints.  When do people start to avoid cholesterol and take cholesterol lowering drugs?

When they are older and their doctor tells them to.

When do people start to suffer all sorts of joint problems? Arthur Itis? Hip Impingement? PFMS? etc.

When they are older and their doctor has told them to avoid quality of life ensuring cholesterol.  The statisticals don't lie.

Not to get all elitist, but if the right potato and oil are used in the process, all you need is a dash of regular salt. When I think about "seasoned" fries, I think too salty.

Take consolation that the vegans are still screwed, because the fries contain "beef flavoring" made from milk and wheat derivatives.

Nowadays, you can find fries cooked in lard or duck fat, but you usually have to shell out $10 for them at some fancy bistro.  Rather than being a cheap, easily attainable snack, they're now something you have to wait for.

But potatoes are the true superfood. Packed with nutrients and able to be prepared in so many ways that result in such a wide variety of flavors and texture.

Their fries are already seasoned with god knows what.  Salt and Sugar for sure.

Notabunny: 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.


Agreed. Why would they shiatcan the hot mustard sauce? That was one of the greatest condiments I've ever had.

/habanero ranch is pretty good too though.

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


You forgot the step where they go through a factory laboratory before being extruded (shat) into fry shape.  Sliced?  At McDonald's?  No such thing.
 
2014-05-09 10:55:18 AM  
They had them in Denmark like, 15 years ago.

The fun thing is that you get to shake a bag yourself, once that novelty wears off, the normal fries were better.

If you want blasphemy, put melted cheese on top of them and call them:

Burger King tried this in the 90's. Eventually they found the whole thing to be retarded and they dropped it soon after.

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

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

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.

But potatoes are the true superfood. Packed with nutrients and able to be prepared in so many ways that result in such a wide variety of flavors and texture. The difference in fries alone is astonishing, just by changing the cut slightly, nevermind the oils or seasonings. Let's see you do that with your acai berries and pomegranates and whatnots.

1/10

/am I doing it right?


Who would troll about potatoes? They're one of the most versatile foods you can find, especially if you are on a limited budget. Like other plants in the nightshade family (tomatoes and eggplants), they are extremely good for you and can provide the core of a balanced diet (as long as you don't eat the parts that can kill you immediately). Of all the staple crops, only wheat exceeds it in general nutrition, and wheat has four times as many calories.

Also, red potatoes SUCK.

You shut your whore mouth!  I love red potatoes, they are the only potatoes you can use to make stew, some oil and rosemary..... god I need lunch now.

moeburn: Montreal Chicken Seasoning.  Any brand, really, or make your own.  It is the very best thing on fries.


If that is ANYTHING Like montreal steak seasoning you can go to hell.

Bring back fries cooked in tallow and screw the vegans.


Nothing to do with the vegans or even cost. More and more states are banning trans fats because people are too dumb to limit themselves.

This is a new thing? We had this as far back as the 80's when I was a kid in Singapore. They even gave you a packet of seasoning and a shake bag that you could season your fries in.

Um... Tallow or lard is from animal fat... It contains no trans fats... Those are only in partially hydrogenated vegetable oil based things, as far as I'm aware...

Are you in Canada? The tartar sauce here in the States comes in an upside down sundae lid with a child's size soda top to close it. Same factory I imagine, but something about the tartar sauce coming straight from the gun on the line makes me think it tastes better.

Oh damn you... Now I've got a craving for Dick's and no money for it until sometime in July...

On topic, welcome to a number of years ago McDonalds. You'll like it when you reach 2010.
 
2014-05-09 11:04:46 PM  
And all this time I've been using Laval chicken seasoning.

It seems easy to read 'fires' and think 'fries'. Brain fried?
 
2014-05-09 11:12:43 PM  
Once upon a time McDonalds made the best fries on the planet fresh from real potatoes daily. Then they went with frozen particle board instead in the name of MO MONEY. I haven't been back since because better burgers are everywhere. I'd pay $10 for a bag of those old fries.
 
2014-05-10 01:49:10 AM  

Ex-Texan: 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.


Frites*, not 'frits', monsieur. As in pommes frites.  I'm also hoping you dip them in homemade mayonnaise or mustard instead of the typical HFCS ketchup we have here in the U.S.

Aaaaand, I'll also leave this here [file is too large for Fark].

they're still made with real potatoes.

How about...asleep at the switch?  Mickey D is a little late to the seasoned-fries fiesta.
Many other chains already offer them - today, I had lunch at a Popeyes Chicken, and that's
the only type of fries they have (Cajun fries).

McDonald's to dabble in seasoned fries

Besides the ones they used to season with beef juice?
