French Fry Diary 117: Alexia Oven Crinkles – Salt & Pepper

These frozen fries from Alexia are Salt & Pepper crinkle cuts, with 0g trans fat, and certified organic by the USDA. In other words, they are Health Nazi safe. And bonus, they’re made from Pacific Northwest Russets, the good ones, and seasoned with sea salt and pepper.

On closer inspection, these standard crinkle cuts are actually quite long which is yet another bonus. Checking the ingredients, the pepper is not just pepper, but it’s also got bits of onion, garlic and jalapeño (!). This is muy strong pepper.

The French fries brown nicely and other than the freezer burn taste that all organic fries have, these aren’t bad. Have cold liquid nearby as that hot pepper taste stays around for a while, like the guest that wouldn’t leave. That doesn’t mean it isn’t good, just that it lingers quite a bit.
