Burger King Kills ‘Healthy’ Satisfries

Just last month, one of Burger King’s prodigy executives said the lower-fat, fewer calorie, less oil-absorbent option called “Satisfries” was helping the chain to “incrementally” sell more French fries. Stores had hyped their arrival but cynics re-dubbed them “Saddest Fries.” The chain brought back its Chicken Fries this week, then promptly took the opportunity to quietly announce its nouveau crinkle-cuts are going to the big deep fryer in the sky. Franchisees were given the opportunity to vote for whether they wanted to keep selling them, and only a third said yes. [AP, Related]
