Burger King Offers New French Fries For Free

Burger King Hopes to Reclaim Its Throne With New Fries

Like condiments, french fries are ripe for a makeover.

Just ask the top fast food chains: in the past year, Jack in the Box has overhauled its fries to mimic those at McDonald's, and Wendy's has announced that its new fries are actually better than those from the Golden Arches. The latest chain to jump on the french fry reformulation bandwagon? None other than Burger King.

The number two fast-feeder — who's recently been rumored to be at risk of losing its top spot to Wendy's — is hoping the Dec. 5 debut of its newfangled pommes frites will reclaim a piece of the fried potato market.

According to BK, the new fries will be fluffier and have a better potato flavor on the inside and a "crispy, golden-brown deliciousness" on the outside. Burger King hopes to prove its french fry cred to customers come Dec. 16, when it'll be offering free small fries to everyone, no purchase necessary.

I'll be checking out the new fries, as I'm curious to see whether Burger King's given priority to the quality of its ingredients. In your opinion, do any of these french fry reformulations actually make a difference?

I wish we could go back in time and do an old/new fry taste test: Burger King, Jack in the Box, Wendy's. Then we could see who really came out on top!

Noooo! I love Burger King fries! I don't want them to change! But I think Wendy's made a good choice by redoing theirs, the new ones are way better.

I just wish they would all stick with the good old skinny slightly bendy French fry. I'm not a fan of all these " natural cut " fries at all. If I wanted that I'd go home and eat potatoes. I want good old fashioned all American fries and burger !!!

Burger King's fries were always my least favorite. Although, unless these are gluten-free and vegetarian, I'll be staying away.

I'm not a fast food french fry connoisseur, so none of these reformulations really make a difference to me personally. There are two types of fries: the kind you eat with a gourmet meal, and the kind you eat when you're craving greasy food late at night. For the second, I'd say any of the fast food chains do the trick!
