Chain drops ‘crack fries’ label

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan-based bar and restaurant chain plans to change the name of its “Crack Fries” in January to distance itself from a word associated with the drug epidemic.
A post on HopCat’s website by BarFly Ventures CEO Mark Gray says the recipe and ingredients of its seasoned fries will stay the same. He notes, however, the company’s “vision for creating an inclusive company … is not compatible” with the old name. A new name will be announced later.
