      McDonald's fries are the best on the market. smile That is when they are actually made fresh and cooked right. The truth of the matter is that many locations don't actually cook them or salt them consistently, which could be the result of the taste test.

      But, I'm pretty sure the survey or taste test was bias. wink lol

      I feel the exact same way, they are the worst, in my opinion.  Sometimes people flock to anything just because it's new...

    I used to go to Wendy's regularly when I lived in London, but now they all seem to be gone here in Europe. Was much better than McDonald's - the fries, too.

    You don't like my boiled potatoes, then I'll bake it for you. With sour cream and grated cheese anybody?

      Oh no, I love boiled potatoes, in fact I eat them a lot I toss one in a bowl smash it with a fork and eat it with sea salt and fresh ground pepper.  Good stuff.  smile

    I'm not terribly impressed with either of them. Burger King fries at least have the decency to taste like real potatoes. Although it did disturb me back when they had to announce the fact that they were starting to make them with real potatoes. Because it sparked my then teenage mind to ask...what the hell were you making them from in the first place?

    Now, given the choice between Wendy's fry-shaped dried bacon grease and Mcdonalds salt encrusted sticks of lard, I would go with McDonalds.

    I like wendys, especially when they used to have the fish sandwich. Also they have great baked potatoes which I would choose over their fries.

      Oh it's Wendy's food for me all the way. Their fries will always remain questionable though.

      Nate, Your so right Wendy's fries have never really been good, in my opinion, but I honestly don't eat fries often, once in a while.

    When I came to Canada, my first job was at Harvey's, same fast food joint. They used to change oil in fryers once a week! Imagine eating all that oil in fried products, that has been cooked over, and over, and over, and over, and over + some for a week. No fries for me, thank you. I still want to live happily ever after. big_smile    There is nothing "fresh" about it. Frozen prepared food and grossly overcooked oil. It's not food - it's illusion of it. Though it tastes great, no doubt about it, if you are brainwashed enough.

    Too often people cannot connect wrong food intake on a regular basis and health problems as a result of it. Instead of changing their lifestyle, they would run to a doctor for some pills, and then they would stabilise their problem and sometimes make it irreversible. Sad thing. Well, to tell you the truth I am not that smart either. It took me almost 30 years and the beginning of serious health problems to figure it out.
    Sorry, what was it all about? I was just talking about french fries...big_smile

    Wendy's claim that their new fries are made from Russet potatoes and sea salt.....so are every other one and
    "One thing that won't change for the better will be nutrition: The new fries will pack more sodium - a medium size fry goes from 350 milligrams to 500 milligrams (sea salt is no better for you than table salt) - and calories jumps 10 to 420. "
    ..they're not any healthier or tastier than McDonalds,IMO

      katiem2posted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Oh my I thought sea salt was healthier, gotta check this out, thanks smile

        Home Girlposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        Sea salt IS better if our food producers manage to stay away from adding some crap to it. I doubt it, though.
        My question is , "Are they going to fry it, and on what to make it healthy?" That's a tough one. Oil? Butter? Angel dust? Cat piss? The method of cooking that's what makes it bad.
        I repeat that METHOD OF COOKING. You cannot fry them you have to bake them and then they will taste like you know what, I am sure.
        Solve that problem  and I will be first in line. I love potatoes.
