I need to have ketchup with my french fries. If I'm in a fast food restaurant eating the french fries then I'll usually grab about three packets of ketchup. I've seen some people grab a whole handful. They must really like their ketchup. How many packets of ketchup do you use on your french fries?

maybe i'll use two at the most. but i used to know a lot of people that'd automactically take extra to take home and save on ketchup.

I usually take a handful, especially if I'm with someone who likes to take it from me. My mom does that. I'll squeeze enough out and then she'll steal some. I always tell her that if some, she should've picked up some as well but she never listens. Sometimes I won't get as much. It depends on what I'm eating. If I'm eating chicken strips, they usually come with gravy and I may dip some of my fries into that instead.

Hi, I usually do not take any sauce or ketchup with french fries; the salt is good enough.

I love ketchup on my fries! I will usually start with 5 or 6 packets and go back for more if needed. I'll eat them without ketchup.... but they would have to be salty and still wouldn't be the same. Sometimes I like to have mustard to go with the ketchup and fries as well. Does that me wierd? :-)

If I am eating in I will normally get one cup of ketchup and that will be enough for all of my fries. If I am int he drive thru or taking my food to go I don't normally get ketchup at all. My sister is one of those handful people. She uses a ton of ketchup on her burger and her fries. So much so that sometimes I wonder if she can actually still taste the burger or fries.

i can have them either way with ketchup or without. i'm the same way with chicken mcnuggets i love them with sauce or without. but if i had to give a number i would probably say one. my significant other goes a little crazy with the ketchup on the fries i don't like too much cause it makes such a mess unless you have them on a plate and with people being so busy, you don't usually have time for that.

Just one. French fries taste very good even without ketchup. I just add little to that, if I feel. But my son empties one full bottle of ketchup for two packs of french fries.

I seem to eat my french fries with not ketchup. ON the other hand my boyfriend loves ketchup and cant eat french fries with out ketchup and mustard. I'm not sure how many packs he would go through but i would say three of each and hes obsessed with that stuff. He also dips his hamburgers and cheeseburgers in it also. I never saw anyone do this until i met him. he also dips wavy potato chips in ketchup and mustard.

As many as it takes, usually about 5 or 6. They need to just put bottles on the table, save us the trouble of opening those minature little packets.

i use like 2 packets for my french fries. in fast food restaurant i think everywhere they give like 4-5 sachets of ketchup. sometimes i think i would take the french fries to home and pour as many sachets as possible to create ketchup fries ( french fries mixed fully with ketchup).

i prefer french fries with chilli sauce than ketchup as I love chilli. Usually for me, I need 4 packets of chilli for a large fries. But I ever went to some western countries where there's no chilli in fast food restaurants. Only then I have no choice but to eat my french fries with ketchup.

I usually don't use ketchup. I use to use ALOT like 10 packets (yuck), but now I like to just have the flavor of the french fry instead of ketchup.

If I am in a fastfood restaurant whethere it's to go or not I usually take more than I need. It just depends on my mood. But I love ketchup. When I was little I would be entertained for hours with a snack of ketchup bread...which obviously was made up of ketcup and bread. how easy was that for my mom to please me?

I can eat my fries either way with or without ketchup but when I do eat ketchup I have to have about 3 maybe 4 packets. I also put pepper on my french fries which is a little weird. The only time I don't put pepper on my fries is if I am also having ice cream of some sort (vanilla soft serve preferably) and then I will dip a few in my ice cream, sounds gross but it is really good tastes kinda like pie crust.
