Alexia Waffle Cut Sweet Potato Fries

I rarely buy fries at a fast food place anymore. You can get delicious fries made in your own oven (or toaster oven), for half the calories and fat - and less money too. There's usually a bag in the freezer - but I like to experiment with the varieties, and after having read a good review of Alexia Sweet Potato Fries, I was excited to try the Waffle Cut version.

I love sweet potato fries in general, and I loved this Alexia brand. I followed the directions to spread a single layer of fries on a baking sheet ... or in my case, on the toaster oven tray, and baked it at 400C for 20 minutes. After it was done and cooled a little, I enjoyed the slightly sweet, slightly savory, lightly crispy fries. As with the Alexia Sweet Potato fries, these waffle fries have a crunchy exterior, but a softer inside. If you're a fan of sweet potato fries, then these will definitely appeal to you. If you're not a fan - give these a try anyway, they might change your mind.

An 84 gram serving og Alexia Waffle Cut Sweet Potato Fries (Seasoned Salt) (about 1 cup), provides 230 calories from 14 grams of total fat, 1 gram of which is saturated fat (22% & 5% of the daily value), 360 mg of sodium (15% of the DV), 4 grams of fiber, 5 grams of sugars and 2 grams of protein. There is also 90% of the daily value for vitamin A.

The ingredients are sweet potatoes, canola oil, rice flour, tapioca starch, cornstarch, tapioca dextrin, sea salt, garlic powder, onion powder, chili pepper, red pepper, dried yeast, black pepper, cumin, xanthan gum, leavening (disodium dihydrogen phosphate, sodium bicarbonate).

I received a sample from the PR company, but a 20 ounce bag (7 servings) retails for about $3.50 at my local grocery store. The total fat content is a little high for me, but then again, fries are not a daily thing so I would definitely buy these again. I'm cutting down on eating rice with everything, so this made a nice side-dish with a bunch of green beans & teriyaki chicken.
