I keep hoping that a single one of these restaurant branded foods you find in the grocery is worth buying a second time; unfortunately, in my opinion, that hasn’t happened. This is my second Red Robin product, I tried their fries previously, which didn’t wow me. They are an extruded potato product, something I am never crazy about.
The rings called for baking at 400 for 20 minutes with a flip mid stream. I pulled them out and they weren’t crispy at all, but “crisped up” as the time passed that they were removed from the oven. Downside? By the time they are crisp, they are cold.
For my personal palate, these had not enough onion compared to the breading. I’m ok with substantial breading, as long as their is substantial onion within! At least they are better than those frozen rings that use onion bits. But they are also “seasoned,” something I don’t care for. Their frozen fries were seasoned “hot,” and these have some kind of seasoned salt.
All in all, it was a valiant experiment on my part, but I wouldn’t buy them again. Like any product I write about, you may find them ideal.
