Friendly’s

Thumbs Up: Kids’ Sized French Fries (pictured with Kids' Mozzarella Sticks)
With only five fried or grilled options, Friendly’s Munchies Menu isn’t exactly figure friendly. In fact, you’ll be hard pressed to find anything with less than 570 calories and 35 grams of fat to choose from. Try the kids’ menu instead - and satisfy your fry fix for only 200 calories and 9 grams of fat.

Thumbs Down: Friendly’s Loaded Waffle Fries 
These fries are “loaded” with cheddar cheese sauce, bacon, and sour cream and served up with a side of ranch dressing. The result: a staggering 1,670 calories, 114 fat grams, and 4780 milligrams of sodium (more than triple your daily requirement).
