Fries: Past & Present
Burger King's old fries are now in the past, joining their old old fries that were available until the mid-1990s. New fries have recently been introduced due to consumer demands.
The 'PAST" Burger King Fries
An order of the previous version of Burger King fries had 600 calories and 30 grams of fat. Sixteen of them are saturated plus there are the trans fats.
Remember: Fries may look like a side dish. But when it comes to calories and saturated fat, they are more like burgers in disguise.
At McDonald's, a medium fries is the equivalent of a Quarter Pounder. A super size is equal to a Big Mac.
The prevous version of king fries at Burger King had 5 to 8 grams more bad fat than those burgers.
The All-New Burger King Fries
In December of 2011, the 16th to be precise, Burger King launched an "all new French fry" in the United States in hopes of improving their infamous reputation for the coating on their fries that people in general did not care for. (The new fries will be available outside the United States in 2012.)
The new version of their French fries are thicker than their predecessors, and have reduced sodium plus a coating that makes them crisper and keeps them hotter longer.
Nutrition Facts For the "New" Fries
The following nutrition facts are for the medium size order:
410 calories, 18 grams of fat, 3 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 0 milligrams of cholesterol, 570 milligrams of sodium, 58 grams of carbohydrates, 0 grams of sugar, and 4 grams of protein.
The result? Burger King's fries have improved, but there are still better fries out there. And that infamous coating still seems to be there, although it is less obvious than their previous version.
