Ok, so those ARE the cutest little fries I've ever seen. I mean c'mon, look at them in their wee tiny red box!
This is the new healthier slimmer face of the Happy Meal, a tiny serving of the world's favorite salty fries. On one hand, I'm annoyed as this is yet another ploy of the obesity epi-panic people to tell us what and how to eat in order to stave off becoming FAT, which is the worst thing ever!11! but at the same time, you can't go wrong with one of these if you're someone who's watching their sodium intake.
I stumbled over the adorable mini-fries via the National Post and this column by Jonathan Kay. While it's nice that Mr. Kay is more concerned about the sodium than the calories and fat content in a Happy Meal, he just felt he *had* to get that dig in about the childhood obesity epidemic that isn't. What could've been a great commentary on a restaurant doing something for the health of it's customer's that's based in actual science ('cause we actually know that too much salt IS bad for you, and especially bad for some people), we have yet another poke in the chubby belly of the fat kids who dare to enjoy McD's. As usual, stay out of the comments.
