    For all of their being the butt of so many jokes, pretty amazing that McDonald's has the "healthiest" fast food french fries.

    Though they are talking in absolutes of best and worst, it is hard to have a valid comparison with varying portion sizes.

      Yeah , that's true.

      But the DQ chilli fries with 71gms of fat (28 satur.) + 2.5 gms of Sodium -- that's a heart-attack

    Five Guys large is enough for 3 people. And they are quite tasty.

    So somebody has to look out for our collective health, right? Check out the Ore Ida Extra Crispy Fast Food Fries - http://www.oreida.com/products/fast-food.aspx .
    Bake 'em in the oven, they're not really fried.
    (Yeah, I know, this doesn't help if you have to eat out for lunch, but they're pretty tasty for at home.)
