Has the phrase "free fries" ever not made people excited? The latest company to offer up the delicious side on the house is none other than Dairy Queen Canada. They are doing it in support of Canadian potato farmers.\nIn an email to Narcity, a Dairy Queen spokesperson announced that the company will be partnering with McCain to give customers a free regular fries when they download the DQ mobile app.\nEditor's Choice: A Canadian Company Has Created Invisible Face Masks That Are Completely Clear (PHOTOS)\nUntil September 15, people who get the app and register for an account will be given the offer and will have seven days to redeem it at participating locations (excluding Quebec).\nThe deal for DQ devotees is part of McCain's #FrenchFriesFeedFarmers campaign on Twitter.\nThat means you can grab yourself one of Dairy Queen's famous cool treats, and get some fries for dipping (if you're into that sort of thing) at no extra cost.\nThis year, Canada experienced a massive potato surplus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.\nAs restaurants closed down early in the year, the demand for french fries dropped by about 10 to 15%, as Kevin MacIsaac, general manager of the United Potato Growers of Canada, told Narcity in April.\nThat left farmers with a huge amount of spuds that they couldn't sell, and roughly 2 million pounds of them had to be put into storage.\nView this post on Instagram Feeling the love. #KingOfTheNorth A post shared by Dairy Queen Canada (@dqcanada) on Jun 10, 2019 at 12:11pm PDT\nIronically, this surplus actually came after Canada was reporting shortages in late 2019 due to weather conditions.\nThe same thing also happened in 2018, when farmers reported a deficit of the root vegetable.\nSome companies appeared to get creative with the sheer amount of produce left over by diminished business, such as Smoke's Poutinerie.\nFor every one potato dish they sold on April 11 and 12, they donated two pounds of spuds to local food banks. The donations were also matched by the organization Foodies Unite.\nSo if you really want to support Canadian farmers, you should try eating more french fries. It's the least you can do.
