  • I guess when describing the fries & saying "not crisp" and then "greasy", it makes me think the deep fried fries were not very well prepared. Rendering the test moot.

  • Your choice should be based on "WHICH ONE YOU LIKE BETTER" not "WHICH ONE YOU THINK IS DEEP FRIED BECAUSE YOU LIKE IT BETTER." You're wrapping up your assumptions in with the testing where the testing is supposed to challenge your assumptions. Also can we get these guys their own samples? You guys can't give each person 2 bowls or something? Otherwise LOVE the show.
