Are BK Satisfries Satisfrying? My thoughts on the new french fries

Thank you to Burger King for sponsoring this post, all opinions are my own. 

I was recently given a challenge by a large fast food chain. They wanted me to try their new reduced fat, reduced calorie french fries to see if I would love them as much as they do.

Of course I accepted the challenge, I mean I’m pregnant and craving carbs after all!

So what exactly was I trying? –The new BK Satisfries!


Here is the information they gave me before setting out on my quest:


SATISFRIES™, a great tasting crinkle-cut French fry with 40% less fat than the leading French fry.


Just like most French fry recipes, SATISFRIES™ are made with thinly battered real whole potatoes. The difference is that the SATISFRIES™ recipe ensures that the French fries absorb less oil – only enough to keep each great tasting crinkle crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.


BURGER KING® is the first quick service restaurant to sell a lower-fat, lower-calorie French fry cooked in the traditional method.


SATISFRIES™ are sold in value (SRP $1.29), small (SRP $1.89), medium (SRP $2.09) and large (SRP $2.29) sizes.


Potatoes, vegetable oil (contains one or more of the following oils: canola, soybean, cottonseed, sunflower, corn), tapioca starch-modified, contains 2% or less of corn starch-modified, paprika extract (color), rice flour, salt, sodium acid pyrophosphate (to maintain natural color), turmeric extract (color), xanthan gum


  • 1 out of every 2 guests that comes into a BURGER KING® restaurant orders French fries.
  • French fried potatoes can be a part of a healthy, well balanced diet, and research shows they are consumed in moderation by most Americans.
  • In the United States, about 1/3 of potatoes are grown for use as French fried potatoes, either oven-baked or deep fried.
  • Like all forms of potatoes, French fries deliver meaningful amounts of key nutrients such as potassium and fiber. In fact, frying, because it reduces water, increases the concentration of many of the important vitamins and minerals in potatoes.
  • Gram-for-gram, French fries provide more potassium than most other vegetables .
  • Research shows that, on average, Americans get about 1.5% of their calories a day from French fried potatoes. Given that Americans consume an average of 2,080 calories per day, this represents about 31 calories a day.

40% less fat than McDonald’s® French Fries – 11.2 g vs. 6.3 g per 70 g serving.  30% fewer calories than McDonald’s® French Fries –226.8 calories vs. 150.5 calories per 70 g serving. Examination Survey, 2009-2010.

So what did I think of these Satisfries?

Satisfries (1)

The good:

  • They have less fat and calories
  • They taste decent, not exactly the same as regular fries but okay
  • They are large and filling

The bad

  • There seems to be a weird aftertaste after eating them, I’m not sure if it is the oil or something with the fries
  • I prefer my fries crispier (this is just a preference thing), so the large fries may inhibit this a bit — cutting them smaller may help
    • Other people may actually like fries that are ‘fluffier’ on the inside, my preference is not
  • They cost more (my preference would be to equally substitute them for regular fries)

    I have not tried the BK Satisfries yet but my husband has. He said they were good but not worth the extra wait to get them. I am not sure if they cost extra as well. Personally, I enjoy their onion rings.

  13. Virginia Rowell December 8, 2013 at 3:56 pm #

    I have not tried them. I would love to with my husband for lunch one day.

    I had them when BK was doing the big promotion and was giving them away for free over the weekend a couple months or so ago. I loved them.

    I have tried them and I do not like that at all.. And you are right when you say their is a after taste, but i cant quite pin point what the after taste is. But anyways, i guess everyone has different taste buds and mine were just not liking it. haha

  16. Lisa Hollinger Barto December 10, 2013 at 4:58 pm #

    I haven’t tried them and im not so sure would want to. I prefer crispy fries. I love their regular fries though

  17. Beth C. December 12, 2013 at 2:07 pm #

    Not had them probably won’t really don’t eat french fries unless we make them at home but I like some of their other stuff if I have to eat at a fast food place

  18. stephanie December 12, 2013 at 2:55 pm #

  19. Mary Happymommy December 12, 2013 at 5:48 pm #

    I have not tried them, but I like the regular fries, so I’d certainly be willing to try these – especially if they are slightly better for me and still taste good!

    Loved Burger Kings new satisfries!! Just tried them last month and thought they tasted great dipped in ranch. Satisfries seemed like a fluffy, yummy tasting and I loved the reduced fat.

    • Jesica H December 18, 2013 at 8:38 am #

      Oh, in ranch they may be good!

  28. raquel perez December 18, 2013 at 4:59 pm #
