You know what I love? Getting food delivered to my front door to review. I noticed a few blogger friends share pictures on Instagram and write posts on new, never fried french fries called CravOn! Since our family is huge on potatoes and we prefer baking frozen fries over frying, I knew this would be soon on our grocery list! But by the magic of blogging (and having good blogger friends), I was able to score a box of the deliciousness that is CravOn.
So what's the big deal? We found a way to prep CravOn fries without flash frying, which means they have 50 percent less fat* than traditional frozen fries. So instead of tasting oil you’ll taste real, fresh potatoes. Don’t get fried. Get never fried.
The taste: Just five ingredients – potatoes, olive oil, sea salt, annatto and caramel color.
We were sent all 4 cuts to taste test: Ripple Cut Fries (crinkle), Diamond Cut Fries (exposed skin on edges), Anytime Diced Fries (a perfect snack or side dish to any meal) and Steak Cut Fries (hearty).
You bake for 20-25 minutes at 450 degrees until crispy and golden. Yes these are a little on the lighter side because I'm not a fan of crispy. Eating these doesn't make you feel guilty because they aren't fried and you don't feel weighed down. I didn't get the itis. They are perfect alone or with ketchup.
I wish I took better pictures but they didn't even last 5 minutes in my house. I baked the Anytime Diced Fries, browned a pound of ground beef, added taco seasoning and made semi-homemade Picadillo! They were so good in corn tortillas. I imagine they would be good in flour tortillas too! YUM!
