French Fry Diary 149: Trader Joe's Garlic Fries

When it comes to upper crust gourmet grocery shopping, I'm a Whole Foods guy. I prefer Whole Foods over Trader Joe's. They are really the same kind of store. I like Whole Foods' butcher shop and also those delicious chocolate orange jellied candies that Trader Joe's has. Other than that, Trader Joe's is basically Whole Foods light.

Trader Joe's Garlic Fries, from the picture on the bag, look mouthwatering, but it's just a 'serving suggestion,' so yours might not look like these. Upon opening the bag, the truth is revealed. These are just thicker than usual, slightly battered regular cuts, with the garlic seasoning in a separate pouch to be put on the fries after they've cooked.

Without the garlic, these fries really aren't that bad. Actually they are quite tasty. The garlic itself is very aromatic and overpowering however. I think the fries are better without it myself, or maybe with just a touch. Good fries though.

they are definitely better without the garlic sauce. luckily through other people's reviews online i could be cautious of the sauce.
