    I take French fries very seriously!

    number one is regular fries - no seasoning - think McDonald’s or the kind that they serve at Bob Evans (tried to think of a place that’s everywhere as an example)

    number two is sweet potato fries, but only with honey mustard to dip in. 

    seasoned and “fresh cut” fries come in at number three. Not my fave!

  • Both!! No such thing as as a bad fry! Waffle fries are my ultimate favorite, no matter what type of potato they are made from.

  • @bows22 I love dipping my fries in honey mustard! I do ranch with my sweet potato fries too. Also agreed that McDonalds fries are bomb.

    oh man, i am an equal opportunity fry lover. 
    sweet potato fries with horseradish or mayo to dip in = YUM
    french fries with mayo or spicy mayo to dip in = YUM
    waffle fries with honey mustard = YUM
    truffle fries = MAJOR YUM
    honorable mentions for zucchini fries. good, but potato all the way!

  • Damn, I should have went with my gut and posted a GTKY about which cut of fry is your favorite! (Crinkle, steak, waffle, curly, shoestring, tots, regular....etc) But I thought was too many hahahaha I'll have to bank that one for later in the week!!

    I am on the same page as all of you as far as not turning down a fry, ever! I will order sweet potato fries if they are an option but I LOOOOOOOOOVE regular fries too!!

    @inthewoods23 I was actually thinking of that one for this morning too! hahaha So yes, make that tomorrow's for sure!! (Mashed, tots, hashbrowns (shredded or in patty form) roasted, baked, fries.... oh the possibilities are endless!)

  • So much fry love today!  I love french fries, pretty much any way. But, like @inthewoods23, I'm not really a huge curly fry fan. I will do sweet potato fries if they are crispy, but if I could choose I would probably go with regular fries over sweet potato. I've been making "fries" in the air fryer, and the usually turn out really good *drools*
    kpearse99bluetickgal
  • I love all fries but definitely need something to dip them in (ketchup is fine with fast food fries, but ranch is preferable with thicker fries and especially with sweet potato fries).

    @legallykate Totally agree with ketchup for fast food fries and ranch for thicker fries. Red Robin fries + ranch is amazing! Definitely would not be the same with ketchup 
    kpearse99
  • I love both, but I usually choose regular fries, unless the restaurant I am at has REALLY good sweet potato fries.

  • @inthewoods23 I'm not from the midwest but I don't like my fries in ranch either!  If ranch is the only dipping option, than I'll do it, but otherwise, no thanks!

  • @inthewoods23 I had never heard of anyone dipping their fries in ranch until I went to college, and now it’s my favorite thing to dip my sweet potato fries in! So good!!

    @legallykate i haven’t had Wendy’s in years, but fries and a frosty was basically all I ever got there!! Such a good combo. 
  • @emeraldduchess I never heard of that!! I would do it too then haha

    I am appalled at fries dipped in a frosty lol. I can only eat a few french fries. Very blehh to me. I'll dip in ketchup or a fancy aoili but not just ranch (I'm just not a fan of ranch, though). I also hate fast food fries (even in-n-out's, they're gross and soggy). I LOVE sweet potato fries. They are amazing and I could eat them all day every day. Chili powder on the sweet potatoes with a lime yogurt dipping sauce is my favorite savory but I'll also do cinnamon on them for a dessert type snack.
  • This is so hard... slight edge to sweet potato fries for me because they are "rarer," but honestly if I could only ever eat one type again I'd pick regular. Love dipping sweet potato fries in a ketchup-sriracha mixture... not anti-ranch in general, but doesn't appeal to me as a condiment for fries.

    I'm with @kvh22 on this one.  Sweet potato fries all the way, and ranch is blegh on fries or in any other scenario.

  • Sweet potato fries in syrup! 🤤
    Regular fries in literally anything but ketchup. 

    Both are amazing and serve their purpose differently.
