Fatassfries no more: enter Burger King Satisfries with 30% less calories and 40% less fat. I’m a little bit of a health nut so I was really excited when I heard Burger King was putting out a less greasy option. Unfortunately, they did very little to reduce the sodium content as I saw a Burger King employee dump an inordinate amount of salt over the crinkle-cut batch. That’s right folks! Crinkle-cut! Now, tell me, who doesn’t love crinkle-cut fries?
I think it’s a general consensus that Mickey-D’s is known for having the best fast-food fries, with maybe the exception of Chik-Fil-A’s waffle fries for all you Southerners, but I have to say that Burger King might have out-done themselves with Satisfries. They’re not too thick nor too stringy and leave that oh-so-heavenly fried potato taste in your mouth. Other than the large amount of salt there’s not a whole lot I can complain about. They keep their heat a lot longer than their stringy counterparts so you’re not shoving two or three in your mouth at a time before they get cold. Winning!
While I can’t in good conscious say that Satisfires are “healthy” I can say that they’re a lot better than the originals. Delicious, a bit healthier and crinkle cut? “Yea!”
