[food] My brief career as a French fry tester

Yesterday, I participated in a French fry test for Burgerville. This is a small area burger chain that specializes in whole, fresh, locally sourced ingredients.

They sat me down with three small baskets of fries and a bottle of water as a palate cleanser. A laptop displayed a 14-point survey that required me to rate the fries on appearance, taste, texture and so forth. As you can see from the photo, this was serious business. Afterwards, I did a roughly fifteen minute interview with a Burgerville store manager.

Really, it was both pretty fun and pretty funny. Plus French fries. What’s not to like?
