Burger King’s Thick-Cut Fries May Sound Ordinary but are Actually Pretty AwesomeOctober 29, 2014
I think everyone is a sucker for fast food french fries. No matter how fancy your taste buds are, no matter how much you tell people you would never eat junk, I’m 100% sure everyone has a secret, extremely guilty pleasure for the deep-fried stuff. They don’t leave you feeling as heavy as you’d usually be after eating a Yum or Whopper or Quarter Pounder, which makes them a better, more excusable snack. A perfect fast food french fry would be crispy outside with a soft and smooth interior that feels like mashed potatoes. Heck, sometimes they’re even great soggy as long as they have tiny globes of salt clinging onto them, and are smothered in ketchup, mustard, or barbeque sauce.
My standard is often that of Mcdonald’s, because there’s just something about the slightly limp spuds that make me addicted. Somehow, even the crunchiness of Jollibee’s isn’t enough to make me order a bunch. Then someone told us that Burger King had switched up their fries to the thick cut kind, slightly more similar to that Jollibee serves up. Some people described them as the best tasting fast food fry so far, with the right amount of crispiness and a steaming hot, slightly mushy inside. They are definitely better than those from my favorite fast food bee, ticking all the boxes when it comes to texture, guilty greasiness, and slightly salty taste. Thicker, crispier, tastier? Definitely.
