What's with the brined french fries?

Carpetbagger | Nov 5, 201312:01 PM     10

It started with chain restaurants but now it's creeping into diners and other independent restaurants. French fries that are saturated with salt. I love salty french fries but the interest for me is the contrast between the salt on the outside and the potato flavor inside. That is lost with this new abominable type of french fry.
So am I correct in assuming that Sysco is brining french fries and pushing them onto their customers?
