Five Things You Need to Know About Chick-fil-A Waffle Potato Fries
Dipping into Chick-fil-A’s most popular menu pick in Canada
Crispy, fresh and dippable are all fitting adjectives for the Chick-fil-A Waffle Potato Fries®. In Canada, fries are a staple fan favourite, so, it’s fitting that they’re the most ordered item on our menu. But there’s more to this classic menu item than meets the taste buds.
1. Top of the charts
The Waffle Potato Fries go with nearly everything and can be enjoyed anytime, anyplace. That may be why they’re the most ordered item on the Chick-fil-A menu in Canada. Whether it’s because of their quirky shape or golden-brown deliciousness, one thing’s for certain – fans can’t get enough of ‘em.
2. An age-old classic
The Waffle Potato Fries were first rolled out in 1985 and turned the French fry industry upside down. Unlike most thin-cut taters, the waffle fries’ unique shape gave customers more dipping power for their buck. Today’s customers can enjoy the same shape and taste that customers have been enjoying since 1985.
3. From farm to fans
For Chick-fil-A, nourishing relationships with farmers who supply our food is just as important as delighting our guests with delicious meals. Chick-fil-A Waffle Potato Fries are made from potatoes using sustainably-focused farming practices by Lamb Weston, a long-standing partnership that’s lasted over 30 years.
We may also source potatoes from other suppliers for use in Chick-fil-A restaurants. Please contact your local restaurant for more information.
4. Nothing to be salty about
Our Waffle Potato Fries™ are simply irresistible. They're perfect for dipping in any of our sauces, and, if you're looking for something salty and sweet, they're excellent paired with our hand-spun milkshakes.
5. Some skin in the game
Since our fries come from potatoes, you’ve likely noticed those thicker fries toward the bottom with few holes and some potato skin. These potato-skin fries have Canadian Chick-fil-A fans divided. Some love them, some avoid them, and others are just plain indifferent.
So, what are you waiting for? Next time you’re at a Chick-fil-A restaurant, remember these fun facts and if you’re feeling particularly playful, grab them with a box of dippable Chick-fil-A® Nuggets. If you’re sharing, just make sure to double-check before double-dipping in your favourite sauce.
