That all changed today.
As usual, I started by having a couple of fries before I unwrapped my sandwich but unlike usual these fries were good. No, they were better than good, they were amazing.
They were crispy and salty and not too-potato-y and really, just the best fast food fries I had ever had.
Halfway through devouring the contents of my fry container, I remember that I had recently read something about Wendy’s recently changing its fry formula.
According to this Globe and Mail article, Wendy’s “boasts it’s the first national chain to serve fries with the skin on and seasoned with sea salt.”
So that’s why these things are so yummy, they’re made with sea salt and with the skin on.
Usually I can only eat about half a container of fast food fries but I had no problems inhaling a whole container this time as well as even eating some of Shawn’s. And that was all before I even touched my sandwich.
The downside to all this tastiness is that the new version of the fries do contain more salt (500 milligrams per medium serving compared with 350 before). So I guess it’s a good thing that I only get Wendy’s every now and then when Shawn picks it up.
Would I buy this again: Yes
Should you buy it: Yes
