Silly me! I also assumed they were just potatoes with lots of fat, salt, and a little bit of extra seasons or spices. I try not to eat them often anyway, but this really makes me want to stay clear of them.

there have been a few experiments that my doctor ran. he bought a hamburger and fries from Mcdonalds and put them on a plate. then he brought a homemade hamburger and fries from home and put it on a plate. The plate of the mcd's never rotted, never molded and the bugs even stayed away from it (was on his counter for several weeks) The other plate was full of bugs and mold (in less than two days)

I ran a similar experiment with margarine. I put a bowl of margarine in my garage. Not one single ant or other bug ever disturbed it. (and it looked just like it did when I first put it out)

If that doesn't say something...

Even deep frying at home with real potatoes is better than any fast food fry!

I'm sure that most fast-food fries are probably almost as bad as McDonald's, but they do seem to consistently be the worst in the industry when it comes to filling foods with tons of artificial ingredients. Fast-food fries don't taste at all like potato to me.

Another big issue with places like McDonald's is allergens--people assume that fries aren't going to contain dairy and soy, but they do. Lots of their non-meat products contain beef extracts. It's just...dishonest.

If you want fries, start with a potato and make some fries. Fries baked at home in the oven taste great--just slice up a potato and bake with salt, pepper and a little garlic powder. Really nothing that you get at a fast-food restaurant is going to be satisfying enough to justify all of the junk that they contain.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

I'm sure all the fast food restraints have a similar ingredient list.

I would only be fooling myself thinking that A & W fries are any better (or Burger King, Wendy's or whatever). I go maybe once a month or so in the summer and not at all in the winter.

Sigh - you can't beat a cold A&W root beer (diet of course) in a frosty glass mug on a hot day. After looking at the caiorie counts, I think I'll be swapping out my teen burger for a mama burger... And after this, skipping the fries...

I'd like to see McD's stop getting all the bad rap - What do you think other restaurants do to preserve their food

I never ate a McRib sandwich again when I learned it had over 70 ingredients. I can barely fathom how that's even possible.

Do something everyday that your future self will thank you for.

Who would have guessed there was all that muck in a chip? The worst thing they do here in Portugal is shake salt over them in the fryer instead of giving you the choice of putting it on if you want it.

On google, I found a bunch of articles that say that McDonalds revealed that their fries contain 17 different ingredients. We mistakenly assume that fries are just potatoes fried in oil. This may have been true 40+ years ago, but not true today. McDonalds fries are treated with chemicals and preservatives to maintain shelf life. You can read the list here.

Is it true that McDonald's french fries have 23 ingredients?

But what could they be?! They look like potatoes to me!

You mean they aren't?! I'm mystified here!
