Bring Back Carl's Jr Original French Fries from the early 80's

Petition Carl's Jr to bring back the original French Fries from the early 80's. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, krinkle cut style.

  1. Ooh I miss those crinkle fries of my youth! My mom used to love the deep fried burritos they used to serve too.

      Yes, the Crispirito is worth bringing back too.

    2. Ah yes, those were the days. I'd get the fries and my mom would get the deep fried zucchini!

        They still have the zucchini! Still delish!

      2. I am so with you on that. They were the best. Pup n Taco (anyone remember that place?) used to serve the same kind of fries.

            Pup and Taco....oh what a wonderful memory...went there with my Grandma when I was a kid in Los dogs and tacos together...the greatest....

          2. Weren't those like the Pringles of french fries? There was something so artificial about them.

                Crunchy crinkle cut fries on the outside and soft almost mashed potatoes on the inside....they were the best! The only thing even close is Del Taco and still sadly they fail to bring me to that fry nirvana. Bring back the Carl's Jr OG fry!

                  I too, was going to mention Del Taco's crinkly style french fries. Not totally the same but enjoyable none the less. Make sure you get them in one of the large drink cup sizes! Yum. BnF approves of Del Taco French fries along with a #9 Double Del Burger Meal! Hey, can you pass me some portion pak serve ketchup packs please? Thank you.
