HOPCAT COSMIK FRIES VOTED THE BEST IN MICHIGAN

Cosmik Fries are beer-battered and sprinkled with Hopcat's signature cracked black pepper seasoning. They’re served with a side of warm cheese sauce for dipping.

The fries used to be called Crack Fries but were changed in 2019 because of the drug connection.

In 2018 Barfly CEO Mark Cray wrote a blog post addressing the name change.

“We chose the name more than 11 years ago as a reference to the addictive quality of the fries and their cracked pepper seasoning, without consideration for those the drug negatively affected. We were wrong, The crack epidemic and the lasting impact on those it affects is not funny and never was. As we grow as a company we have come to realize that to make light of this drug and of addiction contradicts our values of inclusion and community. We want to thank our guests, employees, and community members who have helped us come to this realization and apologize for the pain the name brought to others.”

 

HOW DID HOPCAT COME UP WITH THE NAME COSMIK FRIES?

According to a blog post on Hopcat's website founder, Mark Cray, is a big Frank Zappa fan, and one of his classic songs, “Cosmik Debris”

I don't care what you call them I agree 100% that those fries are amazing!
