Just about everyone can agree that french fries are great. They might not be great FOR you, but it’s hard to deny that they go with just about everything. They can be dressed up or slopped down. French fries are the Marvel movies of foods, some are better than others, but they’re all pretty enjoyable (h/t @Anne_Ewbank for that perfect simile).
But the one thing it’s hard for people to agree on is what shape french fries should take. Standard cut? Waffle? Crinkle? Steak? What is the best and most correct shape of french fry? Depends who you ask, but we want to try and quantify it anyway. In the great tradition of highly arbitrary food polls, vote for your favorite shape of fry below, and tell us why you think it is the one and only True Fry.
- Standard Cut/Shoestring
- Crinkle Cut
- Other (Please describe in the comments)
(Cottage “fries,” tater tots, and straight-up potato wedges have been omitted for sanity.)
