Last week, I was given a chance to try Wendy’s new natural cut fries. I received the opportunity from Foodbuzz. As part of my acceptance to try the fries through Foodbuzz, I had to agree to do a review.
You may have seen the signs or advertisements for the revamping of Wendy’s fries. The new fries are cut with the skin on, and according to the company, this helps maintain a better taste and crisper fry. The fries are also sprinkled with sea salt.
We were assigned a specific Wendy’s location and certain times to try the fries. The one I went to was on Scripps Poway. I’m not quite sure why we had to go to a specific location because when I got there, they had no idea why I was there. Foodbuzz had mailed us each two $10 gift cards so that we could try the natural cut fries and bring a few friends to try them as well.
Because of the time assignment, it was just BF and I (I’ll bring my family on another date), so we ordered a medium fries. We also ordered a few chicken nuggets. I really enjoy the chicken nuggets at Wendy’s because the batter is light and you can actually taste chicken inside. A few months ago, they changed the batter to make it spicy. I actually preferred the non-spicy batter because the spicy taste masks the chicken.
I was never a big fan of Wendy’s old fries. Normally I can’t resist getting fries when I have fast food, but I found Wendy’s old fries to be mushy and tasteless so I stopped ordering them when I did dine at Wendy’s.
The new fries are definitely different. They are much crispier and have a better flavor. However, the sea salt makes them a little salty.
I definitely prefer these fries to the old ones though and I would order these fries again next time I visit Wendy’s, but I’ll have to spend some time wiping off some of the salt before eating the fries.
