Fuck Ketchup.

Vinegar all the way.

#4 Posted by forkboy (1316 posts) -

No. Chips need vinegar. And ideally also cheese.

#5 Posted by MariachiMacabre (7097 posts) -

I rarely eat McDonalds fries with ketchup.

#6 Posted by Hizang (9360 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 (11233 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 (1183 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 (36566 posts) -

I often do.

#11 Posted by AlexW00d (6703 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 (3015 posts) -

@Pie: Stop following me Pie

#13 Posted by ZeForgotten (10368 posts) -

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

#14 Posted by Hizang (9360 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 (4380 posts) -

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

#16 Posted by HistoryInRust (6570 posts) -

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

#17 Posted by Kerned (1183 posts) -

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

#18 Posted by dungbootle (2501 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 (4070 posts) -

Mayonnaise all day every day.

#22 Posted by Slay3r1583 (674 posts) -

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

#23 Posted by forkboy (1316 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 (514 posts) -

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

#25 Posted by BabyChooChoo (5177 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 (12767 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 (4812 posts) -

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

#28 Posted by laserbolts (5441 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 (4977 posts) -

Fuck ketchup.

#30 Posted by Kung_Fu_Viking (752 posts) -

Vinegar is the worst thing.

#31 Posted by bushpusherr (938 posts) -

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

#32 Posted by ThePickle (4266 posts) -

I prefer fries without ketchup.

#33 Posted by RazielCuts (3057 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 (3368 posts) -

Yeah I usually eat fries without ketchup.

#35 Posted by RE_Player1 (7943 posts) -

Unless it's home cooked fries I need ketchup.

#36 Posted by DeathByWaffle (689 posts) -

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

#37 Posted by Hizang (9360 posts) -
@RazielCuts Reminded me of Curry sauce, now that's great.
#38 Posted by Napalm (9230 posts) -

Good fries don't need a condiment.

#39 Posted by JonSmith (174 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 (1518 posts) -

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


#42 Posted by RecSpec (4543 posts) -

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

#43 Posted by thedj93 (1260 posts) -

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

#44 Posted by Brenderous (1183 posts) -

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

#45 Posted by crusader8463 (14744 posts) -

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

#46 Posted by Winsord (1423 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 (8988 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 (3057 posts) -

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

#50 Posted by mandude (2670 posts) -

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