TJ Farms Sweet Potato Fries Or Sweet Potato Scraps?
Posted by Sandy on 2011-06-10
NEVER have I EVER had to eat french fries with a SPOON. Well that is, until I bought TJ Farms Sweet Potato Fries.
The picture I posted is a picture of the 'largest' pieces I found in the entire bag. The rest of the bag were all those little bits that you can see there on the plate.
When I first opened the package and looked in it, I actually laughed. I'm just glad I didn't plan on serving these to my company when they visited. I've never had sweet potato fries before and thought I'd finally try them. At first, I had some with salt and they were yucky. THEN I tried them with sugar sprinkled on them and they were like candy. But why, oh why would they sell these scrap pieces to their customers? I have another unopened bag in the freezer and I'm almost afraid to find out they might be the same.
So, if you're looking for decent sweet potato fries like they show on the package, consider yourself warned because that's not what you're going to get. Yeah, they tasted good with the sugar on them but I was really, really disappointed when I found I bought a bag of scraps. I've never even seen sweet potatoes that small before. Any sweet potato I've seen in the stores are pretty large, so I expected decent sized fries from them. And let me just say, these little fries were not broken fries, they were cut that way because you can see the ends and they were sliced, not broken.
My Dad sat there and actually laughed at me when he saw me eating my French Fries with a spoon!
