This fast food chain's revamped fries come with a guarantee

Cheapism Logo By Saundra Latham of Cheapism | Slide 2 of 17: Poor Wendy's has always played second fiddle to McDonald's. While its "fresh, never frozen" burgers have earned some respect, some people still flock to the Golden Arches solely because of the fries. But Wendy's churns out some underrated natural-cut fries that actually taste like potatoes — in the best way. And if you're over soggy fries, we have good news: Wendy's recently reformulated its fries to stay hot and crisp for up to a half-hour, a change largely driven by growth in takeout orders. The secret: a precise thick-thin cut and a new coating that Wendy's says has helped the fries outperform McDonald's in testing. Skeptical? Wendy's is even offering a fry guarantee — if your fries fall short for any reason, they will be replaced, no questions asked. Related: Why McDonald's Fries Used to Taste Better
