If ever there was a vegetable that could give the caterpillar a run for its metamorphosis money, it’d be the humble potato. Whether you enjoy it mashed or baked, the spud is loved by all. But, if there’s one potato dish that has changed the world, it’s FRIES.
In honour of National French Fries Day on 13 July, we had a think about all the different types of fries you can gobble down. From shoestring to poutine, what does your relation-chip reveal about you?
You’re romantic and slick, and prefer to eat French Fries with your lover – and a slathering of mayonnaise. Followed by some, ahem, french kissing. Pucker up!
No-nonsense, friendly and a mate to all, you prefer thicker cut chips doused in vinegar to munch on with your fish. You enjoy your own company.
You want, and NEED to be around people. Your biggest joy in life is to share a huge bowl of delicious wedges. Sour cream and sweet chilli sauce is life!
Hungry all the time, you think burgers are the ultimate food. You also love beer. Anything with beer. You have many admirers.

Shoestring, Curly Fries, Tornado Fries
A kid at heart, you love adding a touch of whimsy to the mundane. Your outlook in life is to have fun wherever you go and with whatever you eat. You also have a tendency to start food fights.

You’re single. And lonely.
We have so much to thank the potato for, so in between shoving chips into your cavernous gobs, take a moment today to remember that the spud spends all of its life underground, in the dirt, until the moment it gets chopped up and fried in boiling oil just for you.
