    I actually liked their old fries even though a lot of people didn’t. These new fries suck though they taste like cheap stale fries!

    What’s the catch?

    • Manavee says:

      You have to eat the fries?

    • Char says:

      The only “catch” is that many people feel embarrassed going to no-purchase promotions without buying something.. at least buy a drink. Drinks being where fast food joints make their money, these promotions every so often are good for them.

      And if you want something free, then good for you too I guess.

      The sodium content.

      • Raiders757 says:

        They claim the newer version has less sodium.

        BK’s new fries aren’t that great, but not to the point where I won’t think about about trying them again for free. I just wish their TenderCrisp sandwich wasn’t so expensive, as that would be a good reason to make a purchase to justify some free fries.

        Thing is, my Christmas shopping plans are taking me right by a Chick-fil-A tomorrow. Sorry, BK, free food can’t draw me away from the clutches of CFA. They own you, and everyone else in the fast food world. Honestly, they’re the Skyrim of fast food. Not perfect, but to good to resist. I’m drooling as I type this.

    “We can’t even give ’em away!”

  4. Mike D says:

    Can we get as many fries as we want or just one small thing of them?

    • Chipster22 says:

      The answer to that was in the review:

    GOT SOME AT 00:25. NO SALT. STARCHY. NOT AMUSED.

    I tried these today. It’s not that they’re bad per se, it’s just that they are so non-descript. There is nothing unique or interesting about these fries that would make me crave them. They are very starchy in flavor and probably would go best with some ketchup, but I usually prefer my fries without the ketchup.

    There’s just nothing about these fries that sets them apart from McDonald’s or Wendy’s.

    I still feel Burger King should consider going to a beef tallow (health nuts be damned) and advertise that fact. Maximize flavor and set yourself apart from the other major fast food players. I doubt they would lose many vegetarians as I doubt many vegetarians are going to Burger King in the first place (BK’s salads are an abomination).

      I agree, they’re very average fries. That’s great if you hated the old ones, and not so much if you liked them. I actually liked the old ones once in a while, though I recognize that they were “unconventional”. I don’t hate these, but you’re right… they need ketchup. They’re basically average diner fries to me.

    I had them twice today at two different locations.. the results were the same. The first time I thought, “Wow.. I would not be promoting fries this bad.”

    My notes:
    Reminded me a lot of Wendy’s old fries.

    They needed more salt, bland.

    There were a few VERY long fries.. which was nice and a bit surprising. I think I had one fry that was 8inches long.

    I would characterize them as very potato-y. Seemed undercooked.

    Not crunchy enough.

    On a side note, the second time I also had the new BK Topper Deluxe. That is a fantastic burger.. at $1.99 I think it’s better than the $2.99 Wendy’s W.

    Got it. Harkens back to the days when I got free fries from them the last time they changed their fries. Full circle. The fries were good. Better? Time will tell.

  9. COBRA says:

    I AGREE, MANAVEE. ALTHOUGH BK DOES SERVE GARDENBURGERS. STILL, HEALTH NUTS BE DAMNED.

  10. JEFE says:

    Had these new fries last night, one of my worst fast food experiences ever; but that’s irrelevant. I ordered a medium fry, and couldn’t finish it because these fries were just too bland. They were limp, with the only “crunch” found at the very end of the fry. Could certainly notice the lack of salt, and like many others, I don’t use ketchup for my fries. If the fries are delicious enough, you don’t need ketchup to enhance the flavor (a la McDonald’s). I liked the old fries, but these were especially soggy and limp and I was disappointed.

    I went there at 7am that morning (after working a nightshift) and they denied me the free fries, saying they wouldn’t begin giving away the free fries until “lunchtime” so I had to pay for mine. 🙁
