It’s been awhile. I know–shame on me. It’s not that I’ve gotten lazy though; I’ve been busy I swear! Between closing on a home, moving in, transferring the lease to our apartment and finalizing details for a wedding and honeymoon next week, I think I have a fair excuse. I won’t bore you with the details, but I just wanted to make my case. However, before I shoot off to the Berkshires for my wedding and then to Bangkok and Bali for 2+ weeks, it’s time I give you the scoop on some spuds.
I recently received a trio of gourmet, all-natural french fries for review from Alexia Foods. So far, we’ve done a number on two of ‘em, and I’m liking what I’ve seen.
First up, we had Alexia’s new Parmesan Lemon Waffle Fries. Lemon and french fries struck me as an odd combination at first, but it really made for a unique and tasty fry. It wasn’t a bold citrus flavor, but instead just a hint of lemon paired with the parmesan. The texture and crispiness were ideal and this is definitely a good option for a more refined fry. Plus, who doesn’t love a waffle fry?
Prefer to go the sweet potato route? Well good news for you, Alexia Foods has options to choose from. I tried the Sweet Potato Puffs. Crispy on the outside and still soft on the inside, they met my standards of what makes a top-notch potato. They make a great side to grilled steak or chicken!
I do want to note that I found the recommended cooking time to be a bit off, so keep in mind you might want to extend the time the fries and puffs are in the oven. Go with the directions, but just be prepared if you need to add another 5-10 minutes on.
Overall, these spuds were winners in my book! While I’ve only dug into two varieties, Alexia Foods has a seriously extensive line up of potatoes, fries and other products including onion rings and rolls. There’s a coupon on the Alexia Foods website, so go check them out for yourselves!
And I’m off. See you in June!
