This Guy’s Way Of Getting Super-Fresh McDonald’s Fries Is Genius

·1-min read

It is, of course, a matter of opinion, but… McDonald’s fries are the best fast food chips, aren’t they?

Don’t @ me…

So, if you knew that there was a way of making them even more delicious, wouldn’t you want to hear about it? You definitely would, wouldn’t you? Come on.

There’s a hack, that you may or may not already know, that means you can get the freshest fries possible.

Johnny, who runs Instagram account @cakemail, has shared a hack that is so simple, we wonder why we haven’t been doing this the whole time.

He says that if you order fries from McDonald’s and ask for them without salt on, they will be cooked fresh as all the fries that are ready to go will have salt on them already.

So, asking for fries without salt is a foolproof way of getting the freshest, hottest chips possible.

To prove his point, Johnny ordered two lots of fries – a normal portion and a portion without salt. He tested the temperature of both portions, and the saltless ones were much hotter.

Obviously, if you’re into salty chips, you’ll then have to add your own when you get home. Or, if you’re eating on the go, you may need to carry salt sachets around in your handbag.

But seeing as this is a judgment-free zone, you do you.
