Even with gas prices in the neighborhood of $4 per gallon, we’re still very much a drive-thru culture. McDonald’s can be “blamed” for starting this trend some fifty years ago with scores of other fast food companies joining in.
The public enjoys the convenience of getting quick food at a decent price, so one gadget manufacturer has recently taken advantage of America’s on-the-go appetite by inventing a product that is sure to please.
Yes, if you like eating French Fries while driving down the interstate, but you don’t like to fish them from the bag or eat them cold, then the French Fry Holder from Improvements Catalog is something that you’ll want to check out.
“It slices, it dices….” — not really, but it does fit in your cupholder for easy fry retrieval. No, there isn’t a warming device included, but it’ll make it easier for you to keep your eyes on the road while your scarf down some fries. What’s more, that’s a little ketchup holder you see clipped on the front making it easy for you to dip, eat, and drive.
Dishwasher safe, you can also use the French Fry Holder to keep snacks or crayons in their place.
I don’t have a price for this gadget because it is currently sold out. Either demand is up or the product has been pulled, but either way you’ll have to check back with the folks at the Improvements Catalog to find out its status.
As for me, I’m going to wait to make my purchase until an optional heated version becomes available. The holder is a nice idea, but I want it to keep my fries warm too!
