Here is another new trend jfood cannot buy into. There are a few places where you order a nice bacon cheeseburger and they offer truffle fries instead of french fries. Jfood is always interested in new things so he has ordered them a few times. Now as he reflects he tries to figure out if they are better or worse than the golden crispness that he loves in a good plate of fries and has decided, nah.
They have this harsh flavor, almost chemical and do not go well with ketchup, which is essential for a good plate of fries. Jfood understands that the oil probably contains not a single molecule of a true truffle and it is a concoction from the lab, so let's take that sidebar off the table.
But are there people who really like this offshoot from fries? And if yes, why? Not trying to be snarky but trying to understand why people choose these over regular fries and whether this is just another flash in the pan idea.
