Most people agree McDonald’s french fries are amazing! When they’re hot! Once they get cold, not so much!
The Takeout decided to run a study to see how many minutes you have to eat McDonald’s fries before they lose their taste.
Here are the findings-
- 1. The first five minutes after they’re made are the sweet spot where they taste the absolute best.
- 2. Between five minutes and 13 minutes, they’re still pretty good, but they start getting cold and the texture starts changing from “crisp” to “mushy.”
- 3. At 13 minutes, they’ve stopped being crisp and rapidly lose their taste.
- 4. And by 17 minutes, they basically become inedible.
So what’s their advice to have the best experience with McDonald’s fries?
Wait for McDonald’s to make a fresh batch of fries, order them, then eat them quickly.
If you are really hungry for fries, instead of getting a large, get a small, eat it, then go up and order another small.
