Foodie shares a simple trick for getting fresh hot McDonald’s fries EVERY time you order

  • A food blogger shared his simple trick to get fresh Macca’s chips
  • Johnny, from Instagram page Cake Mail, said you should order them without salt
  • While some agreed, others felt it made life unnecessarily difficult for workers

A food blogger shared his simple trick for getting crispy McDonald’s fries every time you order.

Johnny, from Instagram account Cake Mail, said you should ask for fries without salt as they are made fresh rather than being scooped out of the prepared tray.

To prove his theory, Johnny ordered two servings of fries – one with salt, one without – and then tested the temperature of each to determine which one was fresher.

The salted fries indicated 24.3 degrees, while the unsalted box measured 36.9 degrees.

For this reason, Johnny said it’s best to order fries without salt and season them yourself.

The trick, which has garnered 2,058 ‘likes’ since it was uploaded online April 13, has garnered several responses.

“I used to do this and I was so cocky about it that I asked them for sachets of salt after they gave me my food,” replied one woman.

A second added: ‘So smart!’

But others argued that ordering chips without salt made life difficult for McDonald’s employees.

How to keep takeaway chips from getting soggy

1. Place the fries horizontally in a paper takeaway bag – this will keep the heat from escaping.

2. Place burgers, chicken nuggets or other snacks on the chips to retain the heat.

“This makes their job 10 times more difficult, especially during busy periods, just ask for fresh fries,” said one woman.

Some said they would rather forgo freshness than without the generous amounts of salt shaken over the fries behind the chips.

‘I can not do it. Their salt is too good! one man wrote.

The tip comes after a former McDonald’s employee revealed how to keep crispy fries from getting soggy.

Bruno Bouchet worked from 2000 to 2003 between the ages of 14 and 17 as a crew trainer at a McDonald’s outlet in Brisbane while in high school.

The now-35-year-old radio personality said there is one ‘life hack’ he has been holding onto so far that would help solve a ‘common problem’ most customers face: ‘How do you keep your chips from get soggy? ‘

‘When you’re in drive-thru you get your chips, they get soggy. So I’m going to tell you … the mistake everyone makes is closing the top of the bag of the chips, ” Bruno told KIISFM radio duo Kyle and Jackie O.

‘Because you’d think if I make it nice and airtight, the heat keeps the chips warm – wrong, what it actually does is it steams the potatoes, leaving you with messy chips. So you actually steam them when you close the bag. ‘

Bruno said there is an easy way to get around the dilemma.

“So the hack is simple, you need the heat to escape,” he explained.

The now-35-year-old radio personality said there is one 'life hack' he has been holding onto so far that would help solve a 'common problem' most customers face: 'How do you keep your chips from get drenched?  '

First of all, open your bag. Second, do you know how the chips are placed up in the bag? Lay the chips horizontally as that would slow the rate of heat escape – it would go out on one side instead of straight from the top.

Finally, you stack the bags so that they are horizontal at the bottom – and you put the burgers on the chips to keep them warm.

“Let me sum it up, chips at the bottom, tilt horizontally, burgers on top, let the bag breathe – you’ll never have soggy chips in your life again, I guarantee you.”
