Jordan Howlett, a TikTok fast food influencer recently shared the real reason as to why McDonald’s French Fries taste so good!

Howlett prides himself on sharing the secrets of how popular foods are made.

Howlett, a self-employed social media director from San Diego, uploaded a video to TikTok claiming McDonald’s employees have asked him where he learns his fast food facts and if he knows of any other “secrets.” This appears to have prompted Howlett’s video about fries.

“I know why McDonald’s fries taste different from everybody else’s fries, and I’m gonna tell you guys today,” Howlett said in his video, which he uploaded Friday for his millions of followers.

“It’s because McDonald’s cooks their fries with beef flavoring mixed within their vegetable oil, right,” Howlett continued. “So, that’s why the fries taste so good but also so different from everybody else’s.”

Marketing materials published by McDonald’s USA have long acknowledged that the fast food chain makes its fries with beef flavoring.

In a FAQ response webpage from March 2021, the chain restaurant confirmed that flavorings are added to its fries.

“When our suppliers partially fry our cut potatoes, they use an oil blend that contains beef flavoring,” McDonald’s website states. “This ensures the great-tasting and recognizable flavor we all love from our World Famous Fries. The fries are cooked in our kitchens, seasoned with salt, and served hot to you.”
