(CNN) - Burger King is scrapping its Satisfries.

Those are the lower-calorie fries that have been on the menu for about a year at most restaurants. But they weren't popular enough to keep around.

Satisfries have about 40 percent less fat and 30 percent fewer calories than McDonald’s French fries.

The smallest portion of Satisfries contained 190 calories.

About 2,500 franchisees are keeping the lower calorie fries at their locations.
