Here's the French Fry You Are, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
There's a good reason french fries are a beloved staple of fast food and beyond.
Fries are a reliably delicious treat known for being crisp, salty and maybe a little bit greasy, and if you ask us, they're appropriate for pretty much any situation. They're also ridiculously versatile, with a fry for pretty much any occasion you can dream up. In fact, we think there's a type of fry out there that's perfect for every zodiac sign. Just scroll down to yours below to find out what it is.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): Curly Fries
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, known for its boldness and fiery courage, so it makes sense that their fry of choice would be something that stands out from the crowd. Curly fries are perfect for them, not just because of their fun and unusual shape, but also because of their crispy golden coating and vibrantly flavored seasoning. Like Aries, these fries pack a punch and do it all with a hint of panache.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Pommes Soufflés
Graceful and regal Taurus is well-known for their dependability and stubbornness, as well as their eye for attention and fine things. And while they won't turn their noses up at a traditional french fry, they'd much rather sink their teeth into something with a little more class, like pommes soufflés. These twice-cooked French fried potatoes puff up elegantly, like little golden balloons, were originally prepared for royals in the 19th century, and the recipe survives to this day.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Tater Tots
With Gemini being the social butterfly of the zodiac, it only makes sense that their french fry equivalent would be the crowd-pleasing tater tot. These hot, bite-sized treats are soft on the inside, crunchy on the outside, and able to put a smile on pretty much anyone's face—just like friendly and outgoing Gemini.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Waffle Fries
Just like waffle fries have a complex and unique shape due to the unique manner in which they're sliced, Cancer is a layered and complicated zodiac sign. They're represented by the crab and are known for having a tough, sometimes emotionless outer shell, while being real softies on the inside. Similarly, the waffle fry is all about the contrast of crunch with the tender interior. And once you get to know both, you'll definitely want to keep them around in your life.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Chili Cheese Fries
No one likes being the life of the party quite like rambunctious Leo, which is why the strong flavors and aroma of chili cheese fries match the sign so well. Like no one can resist the allure of a fry slathered in cheese and chili, few are immune to Leo's charms. Just put Leo, or the fries, in a social situation, and watch everyone gravitate toward them.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22): Potato Wedges
Virgo is a perfectionistic and hard-working sign that's all about getting steady and consistent results, so they're best represented by the classic potato wedge. Wedges may not be the fanciest preparation of the potato that exists, but they're dependably tasty, and they always get the job done.
Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): Shoestring Fries
Libra is another sign known to be a great friend to all, which is why we've matched them with shoestring fries, the perfect complementary fry to any meal. Shoestring fries are thin, stackable and extra-crispy, making them taste extra delicious paired with sandwiches, burgers and more, just like any outing is made better by bringing a Libra along.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Cheese Fries
Scorpio's an alluring and enigmatic sign that shares quite a bit with a plate of cheese fries. Though Scorpio can be charming, witty and fearless, they're not everyone's cup of tea, and it can be tough to get to know them. Similarly, though most people like cheese and most people like fries, this combination can be a bit too much for the weak of heart. Both can be acquired tastes—and that's just how they like it.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Garlic Fries
Sagittarius is the zodiac's adventurous traveler, so they also require a fry that's a little on the daring side in the form of garlic fries. Sags are open-minded and willing to try pretty much anything at least once, and the minute they get a taste of the strong, pungent flavors of garlic fries, they won't be able to get enough. For them, the more garlic, the better—and they're confident enough not to mind the garlic breath after, either.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Classic French Fries
Ever the traditionalists, Capricorn's fry of choice is none other than the classic french fry. Capricorns are known to be the most diligent sign of the zodiac, refusing to cut corners or take shortcuts to get the perfect results they desire. Chances are that they prefer a classic french fry over all of the fancy variations, and they know one or two places that make absolutely perfect fries, which they return to again and again to support the masters of their craft.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18: Sweet Potato Fries
Aquarius is an independent sign that plays by its own rules, which is why their fry is the only one on this list made not of traditional potatoes, but sweet potatoes. They're not afraid to stand out from the crowd, and while not everyone is a fan of the starchy, sweet flavor of sweet potatoes, optimistic Aquarius will be the first to jump in line to try them. After all, they don't care what anyone thinks about them.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Smiley Fries
Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, known for their creativity, sensitivity and dreamy natures, and while they may be slightly childish, they can't resist a fry in the shape of a kindly smiley face. Pisces are driven by whatever brings them joy, and they'll definitely be grinning biting into one of these smiling potatoes.
