After only one year, a majority of Burger King restaurants are pulling the plug on "Satisfries."
The company says only about one-third of its 7,400 U.S. franchises have opted to continue selling the low-fat fries. The remaining restaurants have begun to phase them out.
The fries, which are made with a less-porous batter that doesn't absorb as much oil during frying, are marketed as containing lower fat and calories than Burger King's normal fries.
The French fries were a big bet for Burger Bing when they were announced in September but they weren't as well received as Burger King had hoped.
