Burger King tried to convince us they had the Best Fries

Despite really enjoying the burgers at Burger King, they could never seem to match the flavor and consistency of the french fries they served at McDonald’s. It was a constant complaint of everyone in my family when I was growing up and was probably the #1 reason we kept heading to the Golden Arches even though the Burger King was much closer.

This commercial is just one of many ad campaigns that they would run about their fries. Each time they would, I would go in hoping that the new fries were going to knock my socks off (and hopefully my families). Sadly that never happened. To this day, I prefer my fries from McDonald’s. They are not the same as they used to be (they used to be mind-blowingly addicting), but they are still better than what I have picked up from the King.

Love those classic uniforms!
