Hot chips are an important – nay, essential component of any takeaway meal. (Hell, even Domino’s and Pizza Hut have been getting in on the action in recent years.) This begs the question: which fast food franchise offers Australia’s tastiest chip? Let the battle of the deep-fried spud moguls commence!
According to the Boise Fry Company, there’s a specific algorithm for perfectly cooked hot chips. We’re pretty sure the average fry jockey at McDonald’s, KFC and Hungry Jack’s do not follow this formula, but that doesn’t mean their wares aren’t worth eating. Indeed, most fast food fans have a ‘big brand’ chippy that they swear by.
We want to hear which franchise makes your favourite chip. Do you prefer the traditional French Fries made by McDonald’s, or the thicker, softer chips found at KFC? Perhaps you enjoy Hungry Jack’s fluffy hybrid offering, or the spicier options at Nando’s?
As a kid, I used to be partial to Red Rooster’s hot chips due to their liberal use of chicken salt. Sadly, heart disease ruined this for everyone and the sodium levels have been drastically reduced. Tch.
