Hundreds of food outlets at Olympic venues have been forced to take chips off the menu, because of a demand from sponsor McDonald's.

2. Vlaamse Frites

 

A good part of Belgium calls them "Flemish Fries".

7. Interesting...

Which part? Is it the Flemish claiming them as their own? Or the Walloons saying "eh, don't blame us, it belongs to the other guys"?

8. I believe it's the Dutch that tend to call them Flemish

 


It's like VD, everybody blames someone else.

3. So much for competition

Free market and all that

They are scared to death of competition. Even they know their food tastes like crap.

4. Change them slightly - crinkle cut, make wider, etc.

And call them French Fries.
