Taste test: These bagged waffle fries looked just like the ones that I get regularly at Chick-fil-A (and at Abner's Cheesesteaks when I was in college) with the addition of some cheese powder visible in some of the crevices.
But looks aside, the texture was quite different, as you really can't replicate that crispy yet soft feel of a fry right out of the fryer in a packaged snack. These had a much harder crunch and no flexibility. Our tasters were mixed on this one, as some liked the flavor, while others found the cheese taste to be very icky.
