I don`t understand how people would even think they weren`t made from real potatos. What the hell would they be made of.
Besides, I think the fries are awsome, now I kinda got an idea on how to make them myself that way.

They could at least back off on the amount of salt they sprinkle onto their fries. It seems that lately the fries are ridiculously salty, and this was not the case years ago. Back when I was in kindergarten and early grade school I'd usually grab salt packets as the fries lacked much salt to begin with. Nowadays I see the crew members take the salt dispenser and literally pour a sheet of salt onto the fries.

They're still great though. :p

It's amazing how many conspiracy theories are believed about McDonalds.

Wait, why are they so specific about it being Canada? What does McDonald's elsewhere do? lol... scary.


Go to Newfoundland, you'll hear it. Apparently we ALL talk like that.


It's just people having a jibe an a Canadian accent eh.

Most countries get it, not so much Americans, we just call them stupid. :shifty:

You guys should just go here for more answers and videos. http://yourquestions.mcdonalds.ca

Even the FAQ is interesting to read.

All of this doesn't make me want to eat at McD's more than around 3 times per year, but it's interesting to see that they really are answering the questions that they are being asked.

I wonder why there is no equivalent in the USA.

Wow. A conversation about french fries turns in to a multi-post US bashing.

with the words about and ]i can't tell a difference between his pronunciation of the words "about" or "house"... kind like maybe comparing the way Texans talk vs. people from New York Vs people from Mississippi.

i have lived here for 38 years now. Not once have I ever heard anyone say the word "aboot".

I'm a big fan of "How I Met Your Mother" television series that teases the reference of "about" by saying "a boat" but not "a boot." American's say it "a bout" like http://dictionary.re...om/browse/about . Anyway, that's enough offtopicedness.
