When the story broke, Bwog Taste Testers were on the scene within minutes. James Downie, Sam Schube, and Brian Donahoe report that yes, it is true. M2M’s legendary cheap-and-tasty, best-in-the-neighborhood fries have been replaced by impostors.

Gone are the perfect little golden-brown packages of tempura-like flavor, and oh how we will miss their texture and adequate salt. Downie reports limp, unevenly heated specimen, desperately in need of flavor and form. Donahoe goes as far as to say “pale and flaccid.” Schube: “THEY SUCK”
