9 French Fry Creations That Are Absurdly Good, So Ditch Your Plain Ketchup And Try Them All

French fries, as you know, are delicious. Cheese fries? Even better. Chili cheese fries? Pure gold. But these insane French fry combinations collected by Spoon University blow the rest out of the water. These wacky creations come from cities all over the country, and they are unlike anything you've ever seen. One look at these, and you will never again be content with merely dipping your crispy fried potatoes in plain old ketchup ever again. Go ahead and smother your fries in melted chocolate and marshmallow for the perfect pairing of salty and sweet. Swap out your spuds for avocados, or give those delectable frites of yours the Banh Mi treatment — either way, you won't regret your decision. The beautiful thing about French fries is that no matter what you do to them, you are going to come out on top. Creativity is what keeps life interesting... especially when it comes to your fries.

Sure, we can all agree that French fries in their crispy, golden state are and will always be a delicious classic. But across the country, cities like New York, Houston, Portland, and many others have started cranking out ridiculous, yet outrageously delicious types of fries. Check out these insanely pimped out versions of America’s favorite vegetable:
