This is definitely going to stir up some controversy.
A chart has been making the rounds on social media, ranking fries from best to worst. The illustration comes from FoodRepulic.com who says they did ample research on the topic, mostly by conducting a poll in their headquarters and in the restaurant community.
Out of 18 different types of fried potatoes, waffle fries take the top honour, while smiley face fries pull up the rear. Though there are some great variations of starchy goodness in the middle (Belgian style comes in 2nd, great choice) there is absolutely no mention of poutine.
Didn’t these guys think of Canada when they made this list? It’s a shame that our nation’s favourite food ( I made that up) isn’t on our list, but there might be a reason for it. Isn’t poutine in a league of it’s own? I mean, any fry ranking with gravy and cheese curds in the running is going to win every time, right?
At least that’s what I’m going to keep telling myself. Still, check out the infographic below and let me know your opinions on fries.
