In November Burger King announced that, for the first time since 1998, it would be changing its French fry recipe. Well guess what? They did just what they said they would. But now they need to persuade people to try (and hopefully like) their new slightly wider fries which they say boast less less salt and a "coating that makes them crisper and keeps them hotter longer." So they are giving them out for free today.

For the rest of the day if you walk into a Burger King and ask for one you are entitled to a free Value Size order of fries "while supplies last." That's one per person, per visit and only at participating stores (though it appears that is most of them). And who doesn't like free fries?

Of course, if you try the new BK fries and find they aren't to your liking you have other options. May we suggest you peruse our list of the best fries in the city?
