This might not be bizarre. Heck, I’m almost positive that this isn’t even interesting.
One thing that I’ve always disliked are the french fries at Wendy’s. They were tasteless and cardboard like in my estimation. I used to also dislike the burgers, but that was only because they were square. That seemed an unreasonable preudice so I was able to overcome it. My dislike for the fries remained though.
The only way to make them palatable was to eat them hot and drench them in ketchup. I could manage with just the sweetness of the ketchup covering the blandness of the fries.
The difference here is with Dave. For some reason I can’t understand the Wendy’s french fries were Dave’s favorite. He preferred them over all the other fast food fries. Now, I’m pretty good at putting myself in someone else’s shoes. Normally I can see how an opposing point of view can be possible. This is a pretty trivial matter, but I made the attempt. I cannot do it. I don’t see how someone could have enjoyed those fries much less preferred them over others.
Just can’t see it.
So recently Wendy’s announced a change in their fries. Natural cut, preserving more of the potato flavour and coat with sea salt. That sounded great to me! Yay. I gave them a try and sure enough they’ve rocketed up in my estimation. I would class them now as yummy. They are still not a wedge cut fry and there is often a bit too much salt on them, but these are small picky points. The fries are much better. I give them my stamp of approval.
Unfortunately, I eat too much fast food so my stamp of approval means too much. 😦
A casual comment to Dave the other day revealed that just as the fries moved in my favour they moved out of his. This makes me sad. Not happy.
On Saturday I’ll have to come up with something better.
