Like McDonald’s Fries?

Trans fats got you down?

Can’t sleep?

Rest easy friends, because….

McDonald’s Picks New Trans Fat-Free Oil for French Fries
Spokesman Walt Riker said after years of testing, the fast-food giant has finally selected a new trans fat-free oil for its famous fries. McDonald’s said the new oil is a canola-based and includes a mix of corn and soy oils.

Riker said it has gotten good reviews in extensive testing and is now being used in more than 1,200 U.S. restaurants.

However, he hasn’t said when the healthier oil will be used in all of the company’s more than 13,000 restaurants in the U.S.

…and there was much rejoicing.

What a fantastic load of bullshit…yes, I’m sure McDonald’s has spent ‘years’ trying to find a healthier cooking oil. How long does it take to bow to the pressure from the media and consumers to use a healthier oil that probably already existed?  Probably just long enough for them to figure out how to integrate the oil in the cheapest way possible and still look like they have our best interests at heart.

Fry Sports

So yesterday was the 2007 World French Fry-Eating Championships at Bikinis Bar and Grill in Austin Texas.

From Austin360:

Top Major League Eaters on the IFOCE circuit, an increasingly celebrated breed of American athlete, will gather in Austin to battle for the title of 2007 Bikinis Bar and Grill French Fry-Eating World Champion. Additionally the champion will receive a $1,000 prize, with another $1,000 being distributed to the rest of the winners.

“French fries are one of the most elegant but demanding disciplines in the world of sports,” said Richard Shea, President of the International Federation of Competitive Eating. “Bikini String’ Fries are especially difficult for Major League Eaters because their abundant flavor can easily distract an eater from the task at-hand.”

Headlining the event is the top ranked American eater Joey Chestnut, of San Jose, California. Tim “Eater X” Janus, Sonya “The Black Widow” Thomas and hometown favorite Levi Oliver hope to upset Chestnut in his quest to capture the French fry-eating title.

Chestnut is riding a wave of momentum heading into the contest, having recently captured the Sausage Eating-Championship and placing second in the World Hamburger-Eating Championship with 91 burgers in 8 minutes. Major League Eating fans consider this to be one of the most anticipated contests on the IFOCE circuit, as three of the World’s top ten-ranked competitive eaters will battle for the coveted fry-eating crown.

And the winner is….

Joey Chestnut has continued his stellar start to the 2007 Major League Eating season by winning the Bikini’s Bar and Grill String Fry Eating Championship.

The San Jose resident impressed the fans in Austin by downing six pounds and eight ounces of Bikini’s trademark french fry in 10 minutes. In second place was Eater X with five pounds and in third place was Chip Simpson with four pounds four ounces.

More of Joey Chestnut’s impressive eating feats.
