This Sunday is National Potato Day. A new survey asked people about our unwavering LOVE for French fries and potato chips.

According to the results less than 1% of us DON’T like fries. Out of 1,000 people surveyed, only EIGHT said they don’t like them. So that’s 0.8%.

People responded that their favorite way to eat potatoes is as follows:

  1. Curly Fries
  2. Standard Cut
  3. Waffle Fries
  4. Potato Wedges
  5. Sweet Potato Fries
  6. Crinkle Cut
  7. Shoe String Fries
  8. Tater Tots (Wait, do tots really count as fries?)

Here are three more results from the survey . . .

  • McDonald’s still has our favorite fast food fries with 34% of the vote. Arby’s is second with 13% . . . Five Guys, just over 10% . . . Chick-fil-A, 10% . . . and Wendy’s barely beat Burger King for fifth place. They both got about 9% of the vote.
  • Our favorite brand of potato chips is Lay’s with 33% of the vote, followed by Pringles, 19% and Ruffles, 18%. (They may have thrown off the results a little by including “Fritos” as a choice. They’re CORN chips, but took 4th place with 10%.)
  • Fries are our favorite way to eat potatoes, but just barely. Mashed potatoes were a close second, followed by baked potatoes, hash browns, and potato salad. (Chips weren’t a choice in that one.)
