Ore-Ida Country Style French Fries Review

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Ore-Ida French FriesStarted in 1952 in a small town on the border of Oregon and Idaho by local entrepreneurs the Grigg Brothers, Ore-Ida has become one of the largest processors of potatoes in the world.  Inventors of the tater tots.  Sold to Heinz in 1965.

They currently make about 50 different types and sizes of frozen potatos, and I picked up the “Country Style French Fries”, which are touted to be lightly seasoned with skins.

I rarely buy frozen (or any kind) of fries anymore, but was in the mood to try these.  I do love the tots, always my first choice on menus that offer a choice of  ‘taters.

These were OK, whatever the ‘seasoning’ is, I couldn’t taste it.  One of the ingredients on the bag is “potato flour’, and I have no idea what the purpose of that is.  Besides potatos and oils, the other ingredients are salt, flavorings and color.

There was a story in the last couple days that McDonalds is dumping Heinz Ketchup after a 40 year marriage.  That must be a chunk of revenue.  Maybe they can start packing ketchup packs with the Ore-Ida fries?  It’s funny that as long as they have owned it, there has been no (that I am aware of ) cross promotion between Heinz and Ore-Ida.  Why not a special “French Fry Ketchup”.  Certainly a better idea than when Heinz put out ketchups in funky colors!

Remember this commercial for Heinz Ketchup, behind the talented Carly Simon tune?  The point was it was so thick, it took forever to come out of the bottle.  Apparently something has changed, as it runs out like water now.  It’s a shame that’s changed.

Bagel Bites Review

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Bagel Bites ReviewBagel Bites were invented by Stanley Garczynski and Bob Mosher of Florida, and sold out to a larger food company early on. Today they are in the hands of Ore-Ida (Heinz), not sure why, the company doesn’t have any similar products.

They aren’t even mentioned on Ore-Ida’s main website, but have their own home, where you can read all about the different varieties that are offered.

I haven’t tried these for a couple of decades, my recollection is that they used to be a slightly better pizza snack choice than  Jenos/Totinos pizza rolls, which to me, never tasted like anything, let alone pizza.

Verdict?  Well, I’m not going to try pizza rolls to compare, but these are OK, really not much flavor, can bake in the oven or microwave.  Would I buy these regularly? Nah. And way too many ingredients listed for a product this simple.
