“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. Gustafson, Coast Packing CEO.  “If you’ve ever had beef tallow fries, you know what we mean.  And if you haven’t yet, I suspect our map will entice you to find and try them (and, yes, taste the difference).  You’ll never want to go back – they’re that good.”

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

An initiative of The Healthy Fats Coalition, #NationalBeefTallowDay is a celebration of a traditional animal fat – pure beef tallow shortening – that is enjoying a resurgence within America’s food culture, in restaurants, fast food operations and home kitchens.

“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:”
