I like home made french fries with the skins left on. I love eating them at county fairs and down the shore on the boardwalk - outside from a paper cup with ketchup and salt, as a meal in themselves.
Come to think of it, I almost never eat them inside - at a good restaurant I'd rather have a baked potato and at a fast food place, I don't even bother.
Why waste the calories? They always taste sort of mealy to me - I don't even think those are real potatoes, are they?
I'd rather indulge in a milkshake even though that's not 'real' milk and ice cream either
- I do like the chocolate and strawberry ones- the vanilla ones taste TOO chemically (which is what they are anyway. (This is all in America - in England the chocolate milkshakes from McDonalds have a banana-y flavor to them - weird). So in England I just have milk at fast food places - because believe it or not - I think British milk tastes better than American milk! And any sort of milk tastes good with french fries.
But back to fries:
if I HAD to eat a pack of fries from McDonalds or Burger King? I'd pick McDonalds -with lots of salt and ketchup. And that's only in America - in England they are just rubbish...I don't know why - but really not even edible and that's in Burger King, Mcdonalds AND Kentucky Fried Chicken. And they don't have biscuits at KFC either - but the chicken is good here.
