We all love french fries, but we also know how bad they can be for us. Isnt that how it is though, the stuff we love tends to not be what is good for us? Anyways, I have found a company that makes fries that are all natural. They even make fries that are better for you. Yes, fries that are better for you! I know I have heard about the fact that sweet potatoes are better for you and that you should use sweet potatoes in place of regular fries. Well Alexia Foods does this!! They make all of your favorite fries, but instead of using regular potatoes, they use sweet potatoes for some of their fries. I was given a variety of their products to sample and review, courtesy of Alexia Foods. The first night after I received the fries, I made turkey burgers and Alexia Sweet Potato Waffle Fries.
To my amazement, not only did my kids not even notice a difference, but they wanted more once they finished what they had on their plate! Score one for mom!!!! Not only did I change up the fries but I gave them something that was better for them and they actually liked it!! Since we first received the products to sample we have now made the different varieties of Alexia Sweet Potato Fries, a new favorite in our home!!
With the mid-term elections behind us, there’s still one more critical issue left for Americans to vote on: the future of the French fry.
