The suggested price for a small order of Satisfries is $1.89, compared with $1.59 for regular fries. - Ahhhh, less for more. The American way.

So now does the counter person have to ask "Do you want fries or Satisfries with that?" I couldn't say it without laughing.

Why not just reduce the size of everything that is HUGE and leaves you bloated when you walk out of the store? We Americans just plain eat tooooo much of everything.

The problem isn't the french fries, or even the oil (vegetable oil). They aren't good for you, but... The problem with fast food meals is the HFCS - High Fructose Corn Syrup - that's in the catsup, burger, bun, cheese, mayo, etc. The meat also contains corn, so does the chicken. Unless the drink is water or 'diet', it's full of HFCS as well.

Does it taste 20% more bland too? I've tried all sorts of diet and low calorie foods and I've yet to find one that tastes as good as bacon...

But it's still a batter coated fry. Won't they ever learn? I often think a BK burger sounds good, but then I remember how horrible the batter coated fries are and drive three blocks further into Bemidji to the Micky D's.
