Let’s Talk About Burger King’s “French Fry Burger”

french fry burger

Burger King certainly isn’t blazing any trails with the announcement of their new $1 “French Fry Burger.” People who have been putting their fries on their burgers for years have all but scoffed at idea.

I don’t combine my fries and burgers when I’m at home, eating at a table, and settled. But sometimes, if I’m on-the-go, I don’t think I’d mind. In fact, it seems like a really convenient idea. Almost a no-brainer!


I mean, I’m by no means crowning Burger King “King of Fast Food” (see what I did there?), but I like the move. And, to be honest, I’m not sure any other chains have the cut of fries to pull off something like this. The old Wendy’s fries (which were far superior to the crap we’re stuck with now) would have been perfect. McDonald’s fries are probably a little thin. And that’s not me being critical. They’re my favorite fast food fries. I just think a “French Fry Burger” would be best implemented with a thicker fry.

So, perhaps I’ll revisit this post after I try the “French Fry Burger.” I’m all for more ideas from fast food joints, even though I’m still not buying/eating chicken wings from McDonald’s.

P.S. Does BK’s burger come with cheese? Because I don’t do cheese-less burgers. Just saying.

Wendy’s Is Stepping Up Their Fry Game

Stop me if you’ve heard this before…

Big fast food chain realizes that they can’t keep up McDonald’s fries, changes their recipe, fries end up worse than ever, said restaurant fades into French Fry obscurity.

If you’re old enough, you’ve already seen this story play out before. The fast food chain referenced above was Burger King back in the 90s. I’m not alone in thinking their fries still suck, right?

Anyway, the news from today was that Wendy’s (based out of Columbus, OH — SHOUTOUT!) is changing things up to try and attract the “foodie” crowd.

What exactly are they going to do? Well, let me tell ya.

DQ Pumpkin Pie Blizzard Here Until Xmas?

A few weeks ago, I discovered the glorious-ness that is Dairy Queen’s Pumpkin Pie Blizzard. Reading up on it, it seems to have debuted in 1991. Where the hell was I? I was in middle school (yes, aging myself) and there was a DQ directly across the street from my school. We pretty much lived at the DQ. It was our main hang out!

Made with pumpkin pie mix and pieces of flaky pie crust blended with creamy DQ vanilla soft-serve and capped with whipped topping and a sprinkle of nutmeg, the chilly fall treat is available at all Dairy Queen and DQ Grill & Chill restaurants nationwide beginning Oct. 1.

If I had known then what I know now…

Anyway, if you visit the DQ website, it lists the Pumpkin Pie Blizzard as the “Blizzard of the Month”. Now, I only discovered this wonderful treat a few weeks ago and they’re going to take it away after 1 month?

Not so fast… I went back to DQ today to get a couple more, mini-sized of course, and I asked the driv-thru attendant. He said that they simply start selling them in October & will continue to do so until they run out, probably around CHRISTMAS!! So, no need to panic! Even if he exaggerated how long it’d be available, clearly The Pumpkin Pie Blizzard should be around longer than just October!
