This article is the archived version of a report that appeared in August 2009 Consumer Reports magazine.
Our recent tests confirmed that fries from Burger King, McDonald’s, and Wendy’s are now trans-fat free, and there’s more good news if you’re a fan: They taste about the same as they used to. Two of our taste-testers tried fries at three outlets of each chain. Results include average prices we paid for a medium order. (Note that “medium” differs from chain to chain.)
