“Seeking America’s best fries?  Look no further — our ‘living’ Ultimate #TallowFriesFatMap delivers on the promise of Coast’s ongoing ‘Taste the Difference,’ campaign,” said Eric R.

Now a fixture on the Coast Packing website, the latest Ultimate #TallowFriesFatMap showcases tallow fries on offer in 489 locations in more than 300 cities across 45 states.  Consumers interested in contributing to the Ultimate #TallowFriesFatMap can do so by emailing

“In terms of freshness, flavor and texture, there really is no comparison to beef tallow French fries, which is why we’re so delighted when consumers can taste for themselves,” Gustafson said.  “Toward that end, we at Coast Packing encourage tallow fries lovers to help make this the definitive go-to guide to finding and savoring French fries fried right.  As writer/social critic/food lover Malcolm Gladwell  tweeted:”
