Fuck Ketchup.

Vinegar all the way.

#4 Posted by forkboy (1217 posts) -

No. Chips need vinegar. And ideally also cheese.

#5 Posted by MariachiMacabre (7098 posts) -

I rarely eat McDonalds fries with ketchup.

#6 Posted by Hizang (8532 posts) -

@forkboy: I've never tried Chips and Cheese before, sounds like a winning combination, just as long as its not the crap that gets melted over the Nacho's at the cinema.

#7 Posted by Seppli (10250 posts) -

If they're spicey, and I got lots of cold drinks - and a worked up a thirst and hunger? Sure thing.

#8 Posted by freakin9 (1175 posts) -

As a side, salt is all I need.

As a main, poutine that shit.

Stop following WillTheMagicAsian Hizang!

#10 Posted by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -

I often do.

#11 Posted by AlexW00d (6541 posts) -

I dunno why you'd eat anything if you need to eat it with an accompaniment, seems like it's defeating the point.

#12 Posted by Swoxx (3013 posts) -

@Pie: Stop following me Pie

#13 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

If there's no ketchup I'll just settle for Remoulade! (the Danish kind, not the French kind) 

#14 Posted by Hizang (8532 posts) -

@AlexW00d: Well then why do people have milk with cereal, why do people have butter on bread? Some foods get better accompanied by another item.

#15 Posted by pyromagnestir (4349 posts) -

If they be sweet potato or cajun fries I sure would.

#16 Posted by HistoryInRust (6467 posts) -

Get a good Cajun-style fry and condiments become a thing of the past.

#17 Posted by Kerned (1170 posts) -

Fries are good in almost any form, at any time and with (or without) any topping.

#18 Posted by dungbootle (2428 posts) -

Yeah, I do that all the time.

In both of those cases it's cause the main thing would be dry otherwise. Chips aren't dry, unless whoever cooked them is a bad cook.

Ohhhhhhhh god, not since high school have I put vinegar on fries. I need to get on that shit A-SAP.

#21 Posted by Skytylz (4046 posts) -

Mayonnaise all day every day.

#22 Posted by Slay3r1583 (664 posts) -

I like fries with just extra salt and a little pepper.

#23 Posted by forkboy (1217 posts) -

@Hizang: It's a glorious thing. A Scottish speciality. No wonder we all die of heart disease before we're 50.

#24 Posted by TheRealMoot (455 posts) -

Yes. Though I prefer them with a side of gravy, I'd eat them either way.

#25 Posted by BabyChooChoo (5029 posts) -

I put ketchup (or any sauce for that matter) on fries maybe once out of every 100 times I eat fries...

Fries are perfect as is. They do not need to be desecrated.

#26 Posted by PenguinDust (12696 posts) -

Yes, fresh and hot from the frier French fries are great all on their own. Add some salt to accentuate the flavor; that's all you need.

#27 Posted by Colourful_Hippie (4633 posts) -

They'd have to be really good fries for me to want to eat them without ketchup.

#28 Posted by laserbolts (5389 posts) -

The only fries I enjoy without anything are McDonald's fries. They're so good. Usually I'll need some ketchup or gravy in order to have a good time.

#29 Posted by Spoonman671 (4870 posts) -

Fuck ketchup.

#30 Posted by Kung_Fu_Viking (718 posts) -

Vinegar is the worst thing.

#31 Posted by bushpusherr (881 posts) -

Ketchup 90% of the time. Occasionally honey mustard or buffalo sauce. Rarely, if ever, eaten by themselves.

#32 Posted by ThePickle (4201 posts) -

I prefer fries without ketchup.

#33 Posted by RazielCuts (3002 posts) -

One of my favourite things about going to Ireland a lot is the way they chuck stuff on their chi[s - Curry Cheese Chips! and if you're real crazy you can add bacon, its a meal in itself. But then over here (in the UK) you can do the whole, kebab and chips in pita bread with chilli sauce...mmmm...now I'm hungry!

#34 Posted by Jack268 (3387 posts) -

Yeah I usually eat fries without ketchup.

#35 Posted by RE_Player1 (7536 posts) -

Unless it's home cooked fries I need ketchup.

#36 Posted by DeathByWaffle (660 posts) -

As long as the fries have a decent amount of salt on them, I'm good to go.

#37 Posted by Hizang (8532 posts) -
@RazielCuts Reminded me of Curry sauce, now that's great.
#38 Posted by Napalm (9020 posts) -

Good fries don't need a condiment.

#39 Posted by JonSmith (171 posts) -

Depends on the kind of fries. I'll eat ketchup with fries from same places. Others, I'll only dip them in mustard. From most Fast Food joints, like McDonald's, or Hardees, I'll not eat with condiments. Arby's fries, I'll eat with ketchup. Home made fries, mustard. Etc.

Chips don't need condiments, you nasty people.

#41 Posted by Silver-Streak (1440 posts) -

I'm not sure if you're aware of this, Hizang, but Chips/Fries are made out of potatoes.


#42 Posted by RecSpec (4132 posts) -

I hate dipping fries in anything, now, if we're talking seasoning, then we have a dilemma.

#43 Posted by thedj93 (1237 posts) -

depends on the seasoning and quality of fry. but yeah it can be done. anything is possible

#44 Posted by Brenderous (1105 posts) -

Prefer them that way. Fried and salted potatoes are flippin delicious.

#45 Posted by crusader8463 (14441 posts) -

Yup. I prefer coated and spicy french fries with nothing.

#46 Posted by Winsord (1376 posts) -

I usually just eat fries plain, not big on ketchup. Maybe put some vinegar & pepper on, but that's on rare occasion. Fries with mayo is alright too, but it doesn't really change the flavour of the fries much so it seems kind of pointless.

#47 Posted by StarvingGamer (8687 posts) -

It depends on the quality/type of fries and my hunger level, but generally yes.

I can't tell if you are making a joke or you don't know, but fries are known as chips in the U.K.

#49 Posted by RazielCuts (3002 posts) -

@crusader8463: lol, you made me think of the whole 'freedom fries' debacle.

#50 Posted by mandude (2666 posts) -

For the past 20 years, I have been eating chips with salt and vinegar. I do not intend to change.
