Beef lard ? I don't eat anything beef related, would have been nice to know this information 10 years ago.
i heard they used real beef flavouring after they stopped using beef tallow, but i think any flavouring they use now is a vegetable based imitation...at least in canada.

The smart thing to do to always get fresh fries is to order fries with no salt.
How do the fries taste without salt? Is salt part of the "secret"?

first ask if the fries were just made...I remember seeing them just make new fries and some ******* asked for unsalted fries...they made him wait 15 minutes and everyone was just getting fresh fries since it was just made

Popeyes fries are better...
Popeyes fries are probably the worst fries of any fast food restaurant.

Canadian fries and oil have been vegetarian for at least the last 10 years - I worked there back then when they switched. It was probably 2006 or so?

they used to use cow fat to fry them in

I think they changed it though
Yupp, it was called tallow. It was WAY Better. Ask any body who's in their 30s or older and they'll tell you how great the fries were. Like addictive. A couple of vegetarian were horrified not knowing it was beef fat flavouring since they said they cooked it in vegtable oil so they sued McDonald's. If McDonald's wants to turn around it's sinking ship, they have to start offering that again.

This commercial today would seem silly, but bring them fries back, and it's as real as it gets. Better than any of the new stuff out there

I don't care if the fries are fresh or not... I just don't like salt on my fries so I always ask for no salt.

Can't tell if you're trolling...your meal there still probably has 1000mg of salt...and the fries still have sodium....
