I tried the new fries!

Remember the other day when I was talking about Wendys changing their fries? I'd say the overall response I got on my blog and facebook was highly negative and skeptical.

Of course I had to take my family in to try them and I gotta admit, hearing all your concerns I was a little nervous. Never fear! I'm happy to report to you dear readers that I enjoyed them. A lot. I even went back a second time (yah twist my arm) and tried them again just to be sure. (The second time around we went for dinner so my hubby was able to join us and he likes them too!)

To me they had the same great crispiness as before. I'm sure it might depend on where you go but both times I went I had different amounts of salt on my fries and to me both were fine (not too much like I was afraid of). And they're still SUPER dippable in the frosty, if you go for that sorta thing. :)



Have you tried them yet? What'd you think?
Do we need to go to lunch together so we can chat and try them?

If you want to try them for yourselves, here's a coupon for some free fries.

We had them the other night and we loved them! But I would love to get together and discuss this topic further.

What did they do different? I'm interested though I'm a die-hard McD's fries fan.

I went to Wendys last week, and saw the new menu for them, but did not partake. I will have to try them.

I wasn't disappointed, which is good because I liked their old fries too. However, as you're the connoisseur , I bow to your wisdom ultimately. ;)

I like them. The ones I had were a little too salty, but I definitely think they're better than the "old" fries. :)

Good to know! I saw a commercial the other day and was wanting to try them...but it'll probly be awhile before I get around to it.

I tried them too, and thought they were not too bad! Good job Wendy's!

Ps..I think I got Ivy's tights at Target, but it was last winter, so I don't remember for sure.

I just like the old ones better. :( But, that's okay. :)

Glad you like them!

The title of your blog had me! I just had to follow, then seeing that you just recently stopped by Wendy's to try their fries, it was love!!!

I have to say I tried them and really enjoyed them as well. It's a huge step up from their watered down overly-sogy fries. Now I can skip crazy busy McDonalds and make my way to Wendy's knowing the fries will satisfy my stomach!

I just had some for lunch today.
They are especially tasty when dipped in a chocolate frosty.

I wasn't going to try them because I'm still staying away from fried foods. But, I decided to give them a try tonight. Now, I wish I hadn't because I'm going to crave them. So yummy, especially with a chocolate frosty.
