Wendy's recently introduced "natural cut" fries, and to prove it they left on the skin. Read about it here: http://wendys.com/food/Product.jsp?fa...
Tried it today.
I must say, while I've never been a french fry snob -- as long as they're fried and sturdy enough to scoop up ketchup I'm generally happy -- I must say these were definitely some of the best fries I've had from a fast-food place.
It's not the McDonald's kind of fries, these are more substantial. Real potatoes, with skins, no trans fat oil, and sea salt. Good crunchy texture with a soft, pillowy center.
These are the types of fries I would imagine In-N-Out making if they could ever get their french fry production down right.
My only complaint with these new Wendy's fries is that they could use more sea salt. As I was chomping down on these I realized I started to detect (gasp!) a potato flavor.
