Is my ketchup use on french fries out of control?

I'm having lunch now, and I've got an order of steak fries. They're pretty good, and there's probably 20 or so fries in the batch.

Now, this restaurant serves ketchup in those little packets. You know, like McDonalds. They gave me three little packets for my 20+ steak fries. So I asked for more, and they brought me four more.

Now, I would estimate that I probably use 0.6 to 0.8 packets of ketchup on a normal steak fry. I just run a line of ketchup along the length of the fry, and it sums up to that usage. That would mean that I need 12 to 16 packets of ketchup for this particular meal. I'm embarrassed to ask for more, but these fries are really gonna start making me thirsty if I don't have ketchup.

It doesn't seem to me that my use is excessive, but I'll also note that I never, ever get enough ketchup at a restaurant if I order fries and can't grab the ketchup myself. Am I an outlier here, or do others have this problem too?

A poll will be coming, but very slowly and then it'll glop into the thread all at once.

For poll purposes I will make the poll universal and use a small order of McDonald's fries as the measure.

You recently bought Heinz stock, correct? I'd say you are jus supporting your investment.


I personally hate ketchup and use BBQ sauce on my fries instead.

I switch up, one fry with ketchup, then a couple without, then back to the ketchup. Also when I lived in Spokane WA there was a fast food place, I can't remember the name now, but anyway they provided tartar sauce with their fries and that was quite tasty.

The Texas Toms by 87th and Blue Ridge mysteriously ended up with ketchup all over one of its outside walls in a similar fashion when I was a kid.

Yes, this. Really good fries shouldn't be ruined with ketchup. And if they are making you thirsty...that's what beer is for.

I prefer mustard or ranch if I use anything. Usually, I just eat them plain. If a fry isn't good enough to be eaten without condiments, it's not a very good fry.

Tarter sauce with fries is really good too.

When I was a kid, I worked at a fast food chain in Oregon called Bob's Burgers. They made their own burger/fry sauce that excellent. It was kind of a cross between 1000 Island dressing and tarter sauce.

The funny thing is that restaurants are long gone but you can still buy the sauce.
