Taste test: These fries, much like Calbee's differently branded Jagabee fries, absolutely looked like real fries, and they looked fantastic. They came in a variety of lengths, with some variations in color, plus skin on the ends of most pieces. Indeed, they were cut from potatoes just like fries, unlike most bagged "fries" like Andy Capp's that are made from processed potatoes or corn.
We crunched in to find a good crisp crunch, not too solid, with a pretty good rich potato flavor. They didn't taste like fries, nor really that much like potato chips, but they did taste pretty good. The cheddar and bacon seasoning was noticeable, but only slightly, as it really should have been much stronger.
Aroma: Very mild. Just a hint of bacon.
