Let’s talk about one of life’s greatest debates – who has the best fries? And it’s hard to argue against McDonald’s fries being the king of fast food fries. They’re crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, and we all know it’s almost impossible to resist them when you’re near those Golden Arches.
But have you ever wondered what’s really in those crispy fries? Sure, we know they’re made from potatoes, but there’s actually a whole lot more that goes into making them. We’re talking about 10 different ingredients, to be exact.
But don’t worry, it’s not some gross chemical potato goop – it’s actually a mix of real potatoes, vegetable oil, dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate, and salt. And of course, the secret ingredient that gives them their signature taste – natural beef flavor.
But wait, there’s more! Did you know that McDonald’s fries go through a lengthy process before they make it to your plate? First, the potatoes are harvested and transported to the factory where they’re peeled, blanched, and cut with a water gun knife at lightning speed. Then, they go through an “ingredient dip” to ensure consistent color and taste, before being partially fried, frozen, and delivered to your local McDonald’s where they’re finished off to perfection.
So, there you have it – the secret to McDonald’s delicious fries. And while they may not be the healthiest thing on the menu, we can’t help but love them anyway, especially when they’re paired with that classic McDonald’s ketchup and a refreshing Coke.
