Alexia Sweet Potato Fries Review

Alexia Sweet Potato FriesAlexia Foods produces a full line of 100% all natural, trans fat free, premium frozen products. I'm a big fan of fries, and since I'm not bog on the trans-fat laden fries at fast food restaurants, I tend to make mine in house. When I saw Alexia Sweet Potato Fries, I knew these were going home with me. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene) and a very good source of vitamin C, plus they are antioxidant rich (read more about the nutritional benefits at WHFoods).

Alexia Sweet Potato Fries look like any other fry that I've tried, except that they're bright orange. I placed them on a cookie sheet and baked them at 400 for 20 minutes, as the package dictates. I could smell the aroma of them baking and once they were finished cooking, I dumped them on a plate and took a bite. Oh, sweet, sweet heaven, these are some of the best fries I've ever tasted! Yummy

A creamy interior is surrounded by a crisp, almost flaky crust. They're salted just enough to compliment the natural sweetness. You'd better only bake just as many as you'll eat, as you'll surely eat a whole pan full if you make extra!

One 3 ounce serving (12 pieces) of Alexia Sweet Potato Fries provides 150 calories, 6 grams of total fat (9% of the daily value), 0.5 grams of saturated fat, 140 mg sodium (6% DV), 2 grams of protein and 24 grams of carbohydrates which includes 3 grams of fiber and 4 grams of sugar. There is also 100% of the DV vitamin A.

At a price of $2.49 for a 15 ounce bag, this is a much BETTER way to satisfy a craving for French Fries than heading out to McDonalds and such.
