Burger King Rolls Out Satisfries, Low-Fat, Lower-Calorie French Fries

Share

What's that about fast food workers being paid a living wage? Burger King is hard at work on other, more pressing matters, mainly, creating a lower-calorie french fry. On Tuesday, the company unveiled the newest development in health food: 40 percent less-fat, 30 percent fewer-calorie "Satisfries."

See how they did that? It's called a pun.

The Daily Beast's Daniel Gross explains:

Yup, that's right, this feat of engineering took 10 years of research. If there's one thing we all know about eating healthy, it's that the most nutritious foods take 10 years to develop in a lab. But what about that dehydrated potato taste? Gross reports:

Mmm...potato-ish.
