Burger King has some new fires, Satisfries, and the fast-food chain is giving them away for free this Saturday and Sunday at participating locations.
What's the difference between Satisfries and their regular fries? Burger King says its Satisfries have 30 percent less fat and 20 percent fewer calories than its regular fry option, and 40 percent less fat and 30 percent fewer calories than McDonald's famous fries.
To sample some of their new fries, customers can head on over to most Burger King stores (Find Burger King locations here) and no coupons and no purchases are needed to get a free sample of the new Satisfries.
"Many of our guests have already fallen in love with new Satisfries and if you haven't tasted them, you're missing out," said Alex Macedo, President North America, Burger King Worldwide, Inc in a statement. "We invite our guests to bring family and friends to their local Burger King restaurants over the weekend to taste Satisfries and let us know if they're as satisfied as we are."
A small serving of BK's Satisfries weighs in at 270 calories and 11 grams of fat vs. 340 calories and 15 grams of fat for a small serving of its classic fries. As a result of a slight change in the recipe for the fries - but with no change in actual ingredients - the fries absorb less oil, so they have fewer calories.
According to the statement, Burger King intends to give away more than 10 million value-size orders of Satisfries, which usually cost $1.29.
