Shouldn’t have, he was right. No matter your favorite fast food or casual dining choice, it’s very likely you’ll find products with their names on them in the frozen food section of your grocery. Who knew? (Except that expert).
Today I tried out their frozen crinkle cut fries, which is a new offering (at least to me). I’ve taken to crinkle cuts lately, and it seems so have many fast food chains, someone somewhere thinks they are “retro” and since we all hunger for the past, they’ve popped up on a lot of menues. Fine with me. I’ve had them at Zaxby’s, Shake Shack, Culvers, as well as that granddaddy of iconic Chicago hot dog stands, Superdawg. All excellent.
I had pretty low expectations for the White Castle variety, most of the frozen fast food sides I have tried have been somewhat of a disappointment, hardly resembling the restaurant product.
Delightfully, my expectations were exceeded, and these crinkles are crisp and tasty out of the oven. Instructions are to bake them at a higher temp than most frozen fries, and I suspect that’s one key to their success; I caution you to keep an eye on them in the oven, because they can go from hot and crispy to rock like in a hurry.
I think they are a fair representation of the restaurant product, perhaps a wee bit smaller, not sure. I’ll remember to check next time I’m in a Castle. And yes, I’d buy these regularly.
