This is why people are dipping their fries in a milkshake en masse

Must Try

There are countless ultimate food combinations that we can’t live without. Like  chips with dips  to mention an important one. In America there are also several combinations that sound a bit strange at first, but are secretly delicious. We all know the peanutbutter & jelly sandwich, or dipping Oreos in your milk. What you may not have heard of before is dipping fries in your milkshake. And we found out why this can be so delicious.


More than 50 years ago, fast food chain Wendy’s introduced Frosty and French fries  to its menu. The result: an entire generation was raised with dipping fries in your milkshake as the ultimate guilty pleasure. So start making that milkshake .

In the context of better stolen than badly conceived, McDonald’s came up with an Instagram post a while ago in which they asked their followers which milkshake they prefer to dip their fries – okay or fries – in.

The internet went wild and two camps arose. Enthusiasts who swore by this combination – after all, they had grown up with it. But also a group of people who thought the social team at the chain had gone mad.


As it turns out, the social team hadn’t gone crazy anyway. A mountain of youth sentiment can add a lot to taste, we also read something else interesting from our colleagues at Bon Appétit . Research seems to indicate that this combination of sweet & salty and cold & warm can do something magical with the taste.

The fine dining version

So it’s not surprising that different chefs are using it. Our interest was especially aroused by a dish from chef Alex Haupt of the Amsterdam restaurant 101 Gowrie . A potato and vanilla dessert that reminds you of your teenage years when you loved to do nothing but dip fries in your milkshake. Or well, maybe just last weekend when you were in the same situation.

Anyway, if Alex Haupt puts it on the map, it must be a magical combination. For his dish, he makes a vanilla sablé, sweet potato espuma, vanilla ice cream and potato chips. We want it now!
