Are French Fries Vegan?

While fast food isn’t always the healthiest option, sometimes it’s the only thing available—or maybe you and your family just feel like having a tasty treat. And what’s a better snack than French fries, right?


The great news is that almost all fast-food chains have vegan fries. Just be sure to steer clear of the fries from McDonald’s since they are made with cow fat—yuck!

In fact, we called every popular restaurant chain we could think of, and every place* we called (except McDonald’s) offers yummy fries that NO animals had to die for. So next time you want fast food, feel free to say yes to the fries.

*Some restaurants may cook their French fries in the same oil as nonvegan foods.
