Fries are one of the best foods, especially fast food fries. From McDonald's and Burger King to Wendy's and Arby's, there are TONS of options to chow down on our favorite fried potato treat. Today, I want to figure out how to get the MOST out of my order of fries. Which restaurant gives me the most fries for my money and are their order sizes a TRICK to make us spend more on less food? I volunteered to eat my way through to the answer!

Theory: MatPat only created Food Theory so he could buy his lunch and file it as a business expense for the tax benefit
Hitler 5 dager siden
Well, it would depend what he would pay for the food for what he gets paid to pay for that food and eat it. So is it really a tax benefit, probably yea

I sympathize with Dan the Editor. I myself don't like fry sauce that much but there's nothing wrong with liking it. (I live in Idaho and the famous joint with fry sauce is Arctic Circle, and it's the third best fast food chain in my opinion below Arby's (second) and In-and-Out Burger (first))

Not large enough sample sizing should have bought multiple of each size from different locations and averaged it out.

I was in Junior High when I lived in Idaho. This was the FIRST time I ever even heard of "fry sauce." And I didn't think it was just an Idaho thing until nobody else I spoke with understood what I was talking about. Best sauce ever.

Medium Fries is great for Business but really, you add like 5-10 strands of fries there and you pay for more. Why do I know? I used to work there.

I used to work for Arby's for a little bit and yeah the way we pack fries is, fries get put in the bag at the same time we stuff the bag so we scoop to fill, and sometimes as we fill it goes in the bag even sometimes overflowing into the bag itself and the times that happen are more in a medium because large fits enough and a small is a small amount while a med. is like a scoop and more so more end up in the fry cup.

Depends where you are. When I worked at McDonalds (UK) I can garuntee that regular fries were way smaller than medium based purely on how the fry scoop would fit. With regular you could do one pass. But with medium you kinda have to shake the scoop up and down against the medium container. I don't think the US has an auto fry maker so I would presume it's the same there.

I think you could do a video similar to this pertaining to drink size with ice in the cup. I think with larger sizes, more ice is going to take up the volume in the cup and the amount of beverage in the cup will be reduced. May not be as good of a deal as we think.

Fun fact and story, I once ordered a small and medium drink from burger king. I accidentally put the small cup drink in my medium cup, so I poured the drink into the small cup. I was expecting the small cup to overflow so I tried to keep the flow really slow, and I felt real dumb when I saw that the filled medium cup perfectly filled the small cup. This was 2 years ago.

better yet , save money by not ordering the fries. Most of the time the fries are of the undercooked old cold sit there until sold and salted with an empty salt shaker. IF you get get fresh , hot , properly cooked fries salted with a salt shaker that actually has salt in it , it is by accident.

In high school I had ap stats and did a test on all the local mcdonalds and found that the average wieght to price of the fries was equal among all sizes. We did samples of 20 from each of the 5 McDonalds in town so like 20s 20m 20l each. I couldn't eat fries for months after this project just because i grew up in a houshold that didn't waste food...

As an Arby's employee, I can definitely say there's less in a large because it is hard to fill the large all the way up, you'd have to smash the fries more to get more in the cup. The medium is a perfect size to get the most.

MatPat: We're not doing Carl's Jr, because they don't have em here... And Hardee's is a different franchise.. NO THEY AREN'T....... The only reason they are still called Hardee's is for Brand Loyalty... They rock the exact same menu. They are the same company.
