We Found Out How Jolly Crispy Fries Are Made! (And Why They’re So Crispy)


Don’t you just hate it when you feel so dull, lifeless, and just plain blah? You know you want to be energetic, happy, and full of good vibes, but instead you’re being… well, there’s no better word for it than this: malata. Not a pretty feeling, huh?

It’s just like how we hate getting limp, soggy fries when they’re supposed to be crispy, golden fried, and delicious. Fries aren’t meant to be malata either and it’s such a bummer to get an order of lifeless-looking fries. But do you know where to go so that you’re sure to be happy with your fries? Jollibee! You know, the home of the famous Jolly Crispy Fries!

There’s just no room for malata fries in Jollibee. And guess what? We found out Jollibee’s secret to having crispy-sarap fries that you can’t get enough of!

It all starts with the potatoes

The road to the crispy-sarap Jolly Crispy Fries begins with, of course, the potatoes. Jollibee takes so much pride in using 100% real potatoes for the Jolly Crispy Fries. They’re grown in rich soil through a supervised farming technology to ensure good quality right from the start.

After harvest, each potato is meticulously selected (no bad potatoes allowed here!) and handled with care. The chosen ones are then automatically washed and peeled for safety before they’re cut into the familiar french fry strips.

The secret to fresh, crispy-sarap fries

Now here’s where the fun bit begins. After the potatoes are cut into strips, the fries are then given a special fries coating. But before you ask, what goes into that special fries coating is another secret we cannot tell (sorry!). What we can say, however, is that this coating is what puts the crispy in the Jolly Crispy Fries!

Once the strips get their special coating, they’re partially fried using natural vegetable oil before they’re frozen to keep them fresh during the trip to the thousands of Jollibee branches around the world.

We’re pretty sure you know what comes next. After all, you’ve probably visited one of Jollibee’s stores and watched as these potato strips are freshly cooked right before your eyes! Voila, there’s your order of Jolly Crispy Fries!
