Around the World: Burger King's Satisfries Called "GratiFries" in Canada

In a bit of a strange move, Burger King's new Satisfries go by not one, but two different names up north in Canada.

In most of Canada, they're called "GratiFries," while in French-speaking Quebec, they're called MagniFrites, a play on the French word magnifique.

While "gratify" and "satisfy" are similar words, I've pointed out before that "Satisfries" sounds a lot like "saddest fries." Not what Burger King was going for I don't think.

If you happen to live in Canada, Burger King is offering free sample-sized orders of GratiFries on Fridays from 12pm to 2pm at participating locations through November 1.


  1. Good change, sounds more like "Greatest fries" vs the name you are totally right about here.

  2. I wonder if we can get poutine made with gratifries instead of regular fries? Sound like a challenge I should attempt lol
