Wendy's Introduces New Fries With Potato Skin and Sea Salt

I think we need a coupon for a free sample, don't you? Mr Green

Wendy's is remaking its fries with Russett potatoes, leaving the skin on and sprinkling sea salt on top. The old recipe used a blend of potatoes, not always Russett, but the fries were 100 percent potato.
The new fries are also cooked in a different blend of vegetable oils.
The fast-food chain has been changing its menu to focus on "real" ingredients to win more fans.

The first move in the strategy was a new line of salads such as Apple Pecan Chicken in the summer. Now, the fries, which first appear on Thursday and roll out over the next two weeks. This is the first major overhaul of the 41-year-old company's fries, although it has adjusted the recipe in the past.

The new fries are slightly slimmer than the old ones, and crispier because they're smaller. They will have more salt, a medium size fry goes from 350 milligrams to 500 milligrams, and calories add 10 to 420. The selling price will not change, ranging from 99 cents to about $2. The fries will still come to stores frozen.

    Wendy's has the best fries in my opinion. Hope these are as good or better... they sound good.

    The new fries sold well in 5 test markets over the past 8-9 months.
    Wendy's plans to roll them out everywhere later this month. Big Grin
    (When we get Wendy's food to go, the fries are all eaten by the time we get home!)
