I think fries would taste exellent with Honey Mustard sauce!!! As to what I will do with the cash, well, let's just say that in involves surgery.

I have loved your fries since 1967 when I first tasted them along with your fish sandwich. It has also been a favorite of mind since them. Other fish sans do not compare! McD's fries are always fresh and so tasty. to use them as an edible spoon with the shakes!

It will be good if mcdonald an buger king can be side by side cause i drive to buger king for they whopper sandwish an go to mcdonald for they fresh tasty fries eat that together mymymy . If I win the cash i will paid my all my bills an by my childrens cloths and shoes.


McFries (d/b/a McDonald's Fries) as best when hot and seasoned to perfection and catsup dipped while eating McNuggets. Try them in the McNuggets dipping sauce too.

My son and I love Mcdonalds fries. He likes them crispy and I like them squishy lol=) He likes his fries dipped in mint choclate chip icecream and I like them with my steak dipped in basalmic vinager. I really think that would make a great "new" meal for mcdonalds. steak and fries. If I won the money I would give half of it to operation smile to help kids and babies born with cleft lips and palates have the surgery they need. My son was born with cleft lip and palate and we were fortunate enough to have the surgery paid for in full. So anyway I could help someone else going through what he went through would be amazing. Then I would use the rest of the money to go on a family vacation. It would be our first.
