"Satisfries" - Burger King creates new low-cal fries

By Shana O'Connor Guide Blogger September 24, 2013 - 12:16pm

Yup, "Satisfries" is the new name of Burger King's healthier fry alternative, which apparently took 10 years to develop!

They’re made from the same potatoes, fried in the same oil, and processed on the same equipment as traditional Burger King fries. But get this: they have 40% less fat and 30% fewer calories.

Based on a 70-gram serving, the “Satisfries” would have 6.3 grams of fat and 150.5 calories. Compare that to the same serving size of McDonald’s fries, which have 227 calories and 11.4 grams of fat.

What are your thoughts? Curious to try them?

They sound like they belong in space!

How do they have less fat and calories if they are made the same? Sounds like a marketing gimmick to me.
