A few weeks ago I received an email from Foodbuzz for a Tastemaker opportunity – a chance to try Wendy’s new Natural Cut Fries with Sea Salt. Yes, please! My husband and I both LOVE Wendy’s Spicy Chicken Sandwiches, however there aren’t too many Wendy’s locations in St. Louis so we don’t get them that often :(. However, thankfully for us they’re starting to expand back in to St. Louis!
Foodbuzz and Wendy’s sent me two $10 gift cards to try out the new Natural Cut Fries with Sea Salt, suggesting that I stop by at a predetermined time. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to make it to one of the designated times to try the fries due to a rescheduled appointment, however a morning of running errands gave me the perfect opportunity to pick up some lunch for my husband and I.
A new Wendy’s just opened about 15 minutes from my house a week or so ago, so naturally there was a long line. Well worth it though! After finally getting to order I got a Spicy Chicken Sandwich meal for Rob (no tomato), and a Spicy Chicken Nugget meal for myself since I’ve been dying to try them.
Admittedly I am a big fan of fries. Put any fry in front of me and I’ll most likely eat it. Though, I do agree that not all fries are created equal, especially when it comes to fast-food fries. Wendy’s fries have always been middle-of-the-road for me. Not bad by any means, but not the best I’ve ever had. Now that I’ve had the opportunity to try the new fries they’ve jumped up on my list. I’ve always been partial to natural cut fries, plus, I would rather eat a fry seasoned with sea salt over table salt!
Overall we’re fans of the fries. Rob thought for the most part they were the same, however he was a fan of Wendy’s fries to begin with. I was a fan, but I did notice that the fries towards the top of the holder were less salty than those on the bottom. I’m sure that was due to sitting in the bag for a few minutes before I got home, and the napkins sitting right on top, brushing off some of the salt.
I’ll definitely continue to get! Oh, and the Spicy Chicken Nuggets – amazing! I’ll definitely be getting those again as well.
Thank you Wendy’s and Foodbuzz for this great opportunity!
