Pinoys love their fries so much they have come up with unique, sometimes bizarre, ways of eating this addicting, fatty food. Raise your hand if you’ve done any (if not all) of these tricks:

1. Dip it on your sundae

This trick is as old as time. If you haven’t tried this one, then you’re missing out! It’s as simple as dunking your fries in a cup of vanilla sundae. The combination of salty, deep fried potatoes and sweet, creamy vanilla is the bomb! Sure you can try this with other ice cream flavors, but as many can attest, this only works with vanilla sundae.

2. The marriage of fries and burger

We already know that burger and fries are complementary, but have you ever tried having a french fry burger? Perfect for lazy slobs and those in a hurry, shove a few pieces of fries together with the patty and–voila!—there’s your burger + fries meal 2.0!

3. Everybody loves gravy

Ever had a shortage of ketchup while enjoying your yummy fries? Gravy works just as well, especially if you have those thick-cut fries as big as a grown man’s fingers. Mmm, yummy. The fries, I mean. Not fingers. But if that’s your thing, then hey, no judgment.

4. Fries on the tray

We know it’s unhygienic, but we love doing it anyway. It doesn’t really do anything special to your fries except make it look like you have a lot when you and your barkada dump all your fries together right on the tray. Round it up by squeezing all your ketchup packets on some tissue, and all that’s left is for all of you to double dip and share mouth germs in the process. #barkadagoals

5. Fries and rice galore
