NYF is the yardstick for fries. Seasoned or not.

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.

Spanky McStupid: [2.bp.blogspot.com image 200x290]Didn't work out well, either.

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.

C18H27NO3: Danger Avoid Death:

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

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


Yeah, that comment is a winnar; spit-take worthy.

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.

Well played sir.

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...

blatz514: This is the only thing that should go with their fries...

[img.fark.net image 275x183]


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.

and canola oil, hydrogenated soybean oil, safflower oil, natural flavour (vegetable source), dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate (maintain colour), citric acid (preservative), dimethylpolysiloxane (antifoaming agent) and cooked in vegetable oil (Canola oil, corn oil, soybean oil, hydrogenated soybean oil with THBQ, citric acid and dimethylpolysiloxane) and salt (silicoaluminate, dextrose, potassium iodide).

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?

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.

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].
/potato on a stick

they're still made with real potatoes.

/oh....you're one of those people.

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?
