ABOUT WENDY’S SEA SALT FRIES
Wendy’s announces the nationwide launch of its new natural-cut fries with sea salt, marking the first complete redesign of the company’s classic fries in its 41-year history. Designed to give French fry lovers a hotter, crispier taste experience with an enhanced potato flavor and texture, Wendy’s new fries are the only ones to be offered by a national fast food chain with the natural “skin-on” cut and seasoned with sea salt.
The new fries incorporate a range of new ingredients and preparation methods to meet consumers’ demand for a better-tasting, higher-quality French fry. They are made 100% from Russet potatoes and sliced “natural-style” with the skin on for additional texture and taste, then cooked in proprietary oil that contains no allergens and has 0 grams trans fat per serving. They are finished with a dusting of natural sea salt to further enhance the flavor.
Wendy’s new natural-cut fries will be priced the same as their current French fries and be offered in the same four serving sizes. Introduction of the new fries begins nationwide on November 11, with all restaurants expected to be serving the new fries by the end of the following week.
I love french fries. I’ve tried everyone’s french fries and definitely have my preferences. Truthfully, I never cared much for Wendy’s old style french fries, I found the old pale white fries to be too soft and sort of tasteless. I was curious how the new sea salt fries would compare. I was very pleased to find the new sea salt fries to be more colorful, crisper, crunchier without being hard, and far more tasty. They weren’t quite as salty as I expected them to be, but I do prefer my fries on the salty side. I’d say the new sea salt fries are a tremendous improvement over the old fries.
