Full Disclosure: I received these fries from Alexia for free to taste and review. I am not being compensated for this post and these opinions are completely my own.
**Edited to Add, as of February 2013, this variety of Alexia fries are no longer in production.
Remember when I told you about the delicious Alexia Oven Fries that I had with my fish the other night? Well, the nice people at Alexia Foods saw that post and offered to send me some more of their fries to try! I loved the oven fries, so I was super excited to try other varieties. When I got the box of goodies from them I couldn’t believe how generous they were with what they sent! Not only the one kind that I expressed interest in trying, but also a few others. (I”ll be back to review those too!) What a great surprise.
The first new variety of Alexia fries that I tried were the Waffle Cut Parmesan Lemon Fries. I am a huge, huge fan of waffle fries. I really like my fries to actually taste like they are made of potato, so this variety of fry are my favorite – closely followed by steak fries. Before trying these I wasn’t sure how I would feel about the lemon taste but I thought I’d give them a shot because I definitely liked the rest of the ingredients.
The first time we made these was again as a side dish with fish. They took about as long to make as the fish did so the timing worked out perfectly!
Once again, I am in love with an Alexia frozen product. These fries were so, so, good. They were definitely not strongly flavored, but there was a flavor there and they didn’t taste bland. As far as the lemon flavor goes, it wasn’t super strong but I did taste a hint of it every now and then. Really, I wouldn’t say that the Parmesan flavor was super strong either. As a whole the fries were well seasoned and delicious. Also, just like the other Alexia fries that I’ve had, they actually tasted like real fries! I’m definitely hooked on this brand – no more lame freezer tasting fries for me!
The only thing that I am sad about is that they are apparently Limited Edition! Alexia, I sure hope you keep these on your permanent rotation, because they sure are delicious, and I know others agree!
I hope I can find these in a local store because the ones I was sent are long gone, and I’m craving waffle fries!
Taste: A+, absolutely delicious.
Cost: A, they range from $3-4 per bag depending on when/where you buy, but I think they is definitely reasonable for good, quality, delicious, fries.
Would I buy them again? Definitely. I just hope I can find this particular variety in stores near me!!
