In "Kracked Krabs," Squidward referred to the food as "Sea Fries," indicating that they might have actually been different fries (which explains why SpongeBob used potatoes to make them instead of kelp.) Then again, they might not be made of actual kelp. It could possibly just be a name. The fries also are more "rectangular" shaped in that episode.
Kelp Fries are a parody of French Fries.
Kelp Fries can be in different varieties.
Often, Kelp Fries are not on the Krusty Krab menu.
The episode "Imitation Krabs" may have featured Kelp Fries since Mr. Krabs was served with fries when he was considered the "fake" Mr. Krabs. However, this is unknown.
On some episodes, the quantity of Kelp Fries varies. An example of that is the episode "Greasy Buffons" that the fries are 7 (or 8) in quantity while the episode Kracked Krabs have approximately 40+ fries on the platter. (However, these may just mean that the fries come in different sizes, the small box being a single serving while the large platter is made for a group serving.)
The boxes they are served in resemble those of McDonalds French fries since they are both red and contain the restaurant's logo in yellow letters on them.
