Burger King getting rid of menu item

Burger King apparently couldn't get any satisfaction with its "healthier" french fries called Satisfries. The fast food chain is no longer forcing their franchisees to sell the healthy fries and only about 2,500 of their 7,400 locations plan to keep them on the menu.

The fries, which some customers called the "saddest fries," likely flopped because they apparently didn't live up to their billing. A small order of Satisfries has 270 calories, while a small order of fries from McDonald's has 230, but only because it weighs less. Another problem, Satisfries were 30 cents more expensive than Burger King's regular fries, which cost $1.59.
