    Well Canada's a big country. They should be better than the USA in at least one thing. Apparently now they're better than the US in two things - hockey & fast food french fries. Congrats Canada.

    Earth certainly has to deal with America's over-consumption. Now there is a real thing, America should deal with.

    Burger King is owned by Tim Hortonís but itís a US legal entity. Therefore, itís not a Canadian company!

    According to Wikipedia, both are owned by a holding company incorporated in Canada (apparently for tax reasons), although the BK HQ is still in the US.

    However, 51% of this holding company is owned by 3G Capital, which is a Brazilian private equity firm. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3G_Capital

    So is it American, Canadian or Brazilian? Or is nationality a moot point for a multi-national corporation.

    I don't know. Micky D's fries are good. I always love them. Burger King's food overall, sucks, at least here in New York. I'll try the fries again but they seemed very special.

    The more relevant point is, given that the Germans love potato so much, why are their fries rubbish? Wherever you go, from MacDonalds to Burger King to KFC they are tasteless. I once suggested to a German friend that we put some butter on the potatoes to give them some flavour, and he was puzzled. No idea what they do in Brazil.
