How Many Minutes Do You Have to Eat McDonald’s Fries Before They Lose Taste

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.
