Got an interesting taste test today. Chick-Fil-A is one of our favorite fast food restaurants to eat at. And yes, California is on a "Safer at home" emergency order. It's going to make for some crazy times ahead. For the moment, drive-thrus are open, so I placed an order using the Chick-Fil-A app to get everyone some lunch.
One of the things I saw that has always intrigued me are the Waffle Potato Chips. We're not going anywhere any time soon, so why not a taste test comparison!
Chick-Fil-A Waffle Chips ($1.99) have existed for years now. Because the regular fries don't hold up well for catering orders, the chips were created.
A closer look at the waffle chips compared to the waffle fries. The holes are a bit smaller than the fries, but they've still got that criss-cross cut.
Taking a look at the back of the bag. There's not a whole lot of ingredients that make up potato chips. Potatoes, Oil, and Salt.
Time to taste them!
First the Chickfila Waffle Fries. When they're fresh, they're delicious. They're not the best french fry ever. That I'd still have to give to McDonalds. But they do have a great potato flavor, especially if you get one that has a bit of the potato skin still on it.
And now the Chick-Fil-A Waffle Potato Chips. They're potatoey and salty. They reminded me a whole lot of regular Ruffles Potato Chips. The chips have a good flavor and a nice crunch.
Time to vote! Which is better? Fries or Chips? At first, they both chose fries, but after a few minutes, Ian changed his mind to chips. The rest of the adults tasting them voted for the waffle fries.
The next few months are going to be interesting.
Stay healthy. Stay safe. Be good to each other.
