McDonald's french fries are a secret obsession of mine, so I have every intention of taking full advantage of Fryday!!!
Here are some fun french fry facts!!
*Golden on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside. Made with quality potatoes and cooked in our Canola oil blend for zero grams of trans fat per serving. A small serving is only 230 calories.
*Their potatoes are inspected by hand and each potato must meet McDonald's high-quality standards.
*Only nine suppliers produce McDonald's french fries globally.
Some History on how those yummy french fries have gotten here-
*1955- Mid 1960's- French Fries were made fresh in restaurants with employees peeling, cutting, washing, blanching in oil, and frying them.
*Mid 1960's- The frozen french fry process was introduced by Food Scientist Ken Strong, and Food Researcher Edwin Traisman.
*Mid 1970's- New technologies like the steam peeler, new cutting systems, and automatic defect removal equipment are introduced.
*2008- McDonald's completely transitioned to the new 0-gram TFA canola blend cooking oil.
