Golden-Brown or Golden-Yellow Fries

Recently I'm noticing how the colours of the fries affects our preferences.

McDonalds is never burnt and is always golden-yellow, while many other restaurants/fast food that serves fries offer golden-brown fries, such as New York Fries or Five Guys Burgers.

What do you prefer? Assuming they are the same crispiness exterior, fluffy interior, what do you prefer - golden yellow or golden brown fries?

    1. Brown, must be an eye pleasing thing.

      1. Either is fine, as long as it's crispy on the outside and soft spud-y inside :-)

        1. If the fries are well done hot and crispy....I don't care what color they are.
