Also, those French fries aren’t just one type of potato. The fries are a combination of various Russet potatoes. The different varieties offer that perfect taste and texture that fans have come to expect. Plus, each potato is cut precisely to ¼ inch. How else is each one going to be fluffy on the inside yet perfectly crunchy on the outside?

Lastly, McDonald’s French fries are doubled cooked. This cooking has the fries partially cooked by blanching them. After being dried, the fries are then cooked in a blended oil.

Now, there are many rumors about the ingredients in the oil. Who hasn’t heard about that beef fat flavor? Truthfully, do any of those rumors really matter? Isn’t just a good tasting fry the important fact?

The only question left unanswered is how people enjoy their French fries? Do you eat them by themselves? Do you like ketchup, barbecue sauce, ranch or maybe dip them into a milkshake? As long as the fry is hot and crisp, I’m digging into that red box.
