Wendy's sea salt fries

See also

They've been around for a while. Time to find out what all the fuss is about. Is this a permanent thing? What the heck is sea salt anyway? It's lucky you've come to such a seasoned (get it?) fast food expert for answers to these burning questions. Well, in truth all this hullabaloo was really just about the fact that Wendy's has renovated their fries to actually taste respectable, instead of people dipping them in a frosty to actually give them some taste.

Before this marketing ploy, Wendy's fries were about as appealing as the girls in a 4H club. Now there's just one more thing where Burger King is coming in last place. Anyone in the fries business knows it goes without saying that McDonald's has dominated this playing field. It pains me to say Wendy's now comes dangerously close. This is a game-changer.

Wendy's true selling point though is the health trip. The way they talk about and show these fries, you'd think they cut 'em straight off a potato, throw them in an oven, then lightly sprinkle them with salt freshly refined from Mediterranean Sea. I mean, who even knows what sea salt is? It conjures up images of large, granulated blocks of natural salt – unprocessed, untampered. It's almost like you're losing weight eating these fries. Here's the caloric reality check. Wendy's medium fries = 420 calories. McDonald's medium fried = 380 calories. One whole honeydew 6 – 7” in diameter = 460 calories.
