Consumers Report says the Wendy's has the best french fries among fast food restaurants.
Recent taste testing by Consumer Reports reveals that fries from Burger King, McDonald's and Wendy's taste just as good as the old fries that contained heart-unhealthy trans-fats.
Wendy's fries were tops for taste, earning a "very good" rating with big potato flavor, and a texture that is light and crispy on the surface and soft on the inside. With a little more browning, says Consumer Reports, they could be even tastier.
McDonald's earned the same rating. Tasters described the McDonald's fries as very flavorful, with crispy texture. Yet, they could be "more potato-y."
Burger King fries were rated "good." The report described them as tasting more like oil than potato.
The Burger King fries contained the most fat and calories, coming in at 23 grams of fat and 480 calories for a medium order of fries compared to Wendy's 20 grams of fat, 430 calories and McDonald's at 19 grams of fat, 380 calories.
