THE FRY CHALLENGE

WRITTEN BY

Zion Danielson

The DIG TOONS MEDIA team decided to do something fun over the weekend. As a team that works remotely, getting out of the house and absorbing some vitamin D while staying safe is important to do every once in a while.

Jerri and Izzy, two of the DIG TOONS MEDIA team members, thought of the idea to do a fry challenge as seen online. The “Fry Challenge” is simply taste-testing and rating a group of fast-food chain fries to conclude which location has the best fries.

Damon, from DIG TOONS MEDIA, thought it would be a cool idea to create rating cards to fill out for the taste testing. The cards looked like this. They consisted of five fast-food chains and 3 rating categories.

Fast Food Chains: (The ones we visited)

  1. Freddy’s
  2. Wendy’s
  3. Popeyes
  4. Chick-fil-A

Rating Categories:

  1. Taste (Determined by the overall flavor and seasoning.)
  2. Crispiness (How crunchy and crisp the fry is. Can you hear a crunch?)
  3. Quantity (Do they give you a good amount of fries. Is the cost worth the amount?)

The card also consisted of a rating scale with a rating from 1 to 10. 1 representing “not edible” and 10 representing “Anton Ego”.

*Anton Ego is a reference from the 2007 film Ratatouille.

Before the tasting, everyone wrote down on the back of their cards their prediction of which fast-food restaurant was going to score the highest.

Here were our predictions:

DAMON: Chick-fil-A

MARCIA: Chick-fil- A

JERRI: Popeyes

ZEE: Popeyes

IZZY: Popeyes

Freddy’s

At 11 AM the DIG TOONS MEDIA TEAM took off and headed to the first stop which was Freddy’s. Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers. The team had visited Freddys before, but they all learned in this challenge that fries taste completely different when ordered by themselves.

Here were the scores:

  1. DAMON – 23
  2. MARCIA – 25
  3. JERRI – 21
  4. ZEE – 25
  5. IZZY – 21
DAMON
“I liked Freddy’s fries, but they were a little too thin for me.”
ZION
“Shoestring fries with a nice crunch and flavor! That’s all I need.”

Freddy’s fries surprised the entire team.

Popeyes

The next stop was Popeyes. The team was excited and had high expectations for these fries. If you’re familiar with Popeyes you know they specialize in fried chicken. Popeyes fries are claimed to be one of the best fries you can ever have. They’re seasoned and crispy.

After this tasting, the team was surprised to find their expectations unfulfilled.

Here were the scores:

  1. DAMON – 18
  2. MARCIA – 18
  3. JERRI – 16
  4. ZEE – 12
  5. IZZY – 19
ZION
“I was honestly a little disappointed. I thought it would be crunchier and have a stronger flavor. Popeyes fries taste different alone.”

The Popeyes fries didn’t add up to what the team had envisioned.

Wendy’s

After Popeyes, the team headed to Wendy’s. Wendy’s is known for its quality food. Hence, their tagline: “Quality is our Recipe”.

Here were the scores:

  1. DAMON – 17
  2. MARCIA – 17
  3. JERRI – 14
  4. ZEE – 14
  5. IZZY – 17
MARCIA
“They were horrible. They had no taste. There was a lack of salt. It was just not good.”

Most of the team agreed on the fact that the fries had little to no flavor and the fries needed salt.

Chick-fil-A

The last stop was Chick-fil-A. The team was all too familiar with this fast-food chain and the taste of their fries, so it was made the last stop. Chick-fil-A is one of the largest American fast food restaurant chains and the largest whose specialty is chicken sandwiches. They are also known for their classic waffle fries.

Here were the scores:

  1. DAMON – 24
  2. MARCIA – 16
  3. JERRI – 16
  4. ZEE – 15
  5. IZZY – 20
They were decent. They just wern’t as flavorful.

It’s time to count up the scores.

The fast-food chain that had the highest overall score and won the fry challenge was Freddy’s. None of us predicted Freddy’s to be number one of the fry challenge, but their classic crunchy shoe string fries won us all over.

Stay Tooned.

FINDING THE FUN IN A PANDEMIC

Written By

Zion Danielson

It’s been about a year since we’ve entered the pandemic. It’s 2021 now and I bet some of us didn’t think it would last this long.

Home has really been where the heart is lately. A lot of people are now working from home, attending school from home, and even hosting concerts from home. People are now trying to find creative ways they can experience the same kind of fun and entertainment they did outdoors when the public was safer.

Let’s talk to the team.

QUESTION OF THE DAY: What are some things you have done to explore the fun in the pandemic?

MARCIA
“Creating family experiences. A lot of themed nights like game nights and movie nights.”

ZION
“I decided to buy skates! I thought it’d be fun to ride outdoors and it’s a great way to get some exercise in.”

DAMON
“Got a bike to resurrect one of my childhood joys with my family.”

“Well, that sums it up. It’s time to get creative. We may not know how long we will be in this predicament, but what I will say is that no predicament is big enough to stop us from finding new ways to have fun.

I’m Damon. I’ll be hitting the big 5-0 in a few weeks. I feel like I’m just getting started with my life – finally stepping into some things that I enjoy doing. It’s humbling growing a media company in this volatile social media age.

INQUIRER

“Do you have ambitions or aspirations?”

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Caricature_dfd4.jpg
I have many. At the top of the list, though, is CREATING FUN for kids. Childhood is such a fleeting time period. Kids should have opportunities to enjoy it and make lasting memories.

INQUIRER

“What is your role in DIG TOONS MEDIA?”

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Caricature_dfd4.jpg
Well, having co-founded DIG TOONS MEDIA, I help establish the vision and direction we’re going. I do a lot of concepting for the kids stories. And I’m also currently the main illustrator for the kids stories.

INQUIRER

“What is your title and what does it mean?”

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Caricature_dfd4.jpg
I guess my title is the Jokester? It’s pretty much self-explanatory. I’m allergic to sadness and depression. I like to laugh. I wish I was funnier. So if I get an opportunity to steal someone else’s joke, I won’t hesitate. Otherwise, I’ve got to rely on my dry humor. My girls are too old to tickle them anymore. And my wife gets violent when I tickle her.
