The low-fat craze has been around for more than a decade, however, Burger King has finally decided to come out with a low-fat french fry.
On Tuesday Burger King announced it has launched a low-fat, crinkle-cut French fry to appeal to health-conscious consumers.
The new fries are called "Satisfries," and of course the restaurant chain is taking a dig at competitor McDonald's, saying the new fries have 40% less fat and 30% fewer calories than McDonald's fries.
The company says the new product has pretty much the same ingredients as its typical fries, but has a more porous batter that keeps out more oil during cooking.
A value-sized order of the "Satisfries" contains 190 calories, 8 grams of fat and 210 mgs of sodium, the company said. Burger King's regular full fat value menu fries are 240 calories, 10 grams of fat and 330 mgs of sodium
This is a bit of a contrast from the $1 French Fry Burger that Burger King introduced earlier this year. The burger, which clocks in at 360 calories and 19 grams of fat, is pretty much a standard beef patty topped with the chain's french fries.
What do you think? Will you give the new low-fat fries a try?
