I’ll be honest. I don’t love Burger King fries. I don’t really care for the coating around them and I don’t think they’re salty enough. I pretty much consider them the starch that allows me to take breaks in between bites of a Whopper. However, maybe I won’t feel that way when I taste Burger King’s new and improved French fries.
Burger King last changed their fries in 1997, which is a long time when one compares it to Jack in the Box who have updated their fries twice since 2004. Of course, BK rival, McDonald’s has never revamped their fries. Unless you count those times when they started using a trans fat-free oil and stopped using beef fat to fry them.
BK says the new fries are larger, fluffier, and have better potato flavor than their old fries. Our pals over at Grub Grade gave the new fries a try.
While a few locations already have the new fries, they’ll be available in about 7,000 North American restaurants by December 5. The suggested price for Burger Kingâ€™s new fries will remain the same as the previous version. The fries will have about 20 percent less sodium and will be cooked in trans fat-free vegetable oil.
