Ruffles Crispy Fries

Whilst strolling through the grocery picking up only healthy foods I noticed these.  REALLY?  What is it about the snack industry that they think they can just thumb their nose at the laws of physics?  Shelf-stable fries?  You all know I had to check em out.

The box has 5 snack-sized bags.  Interesting.

Uh-oh.  Strike one.  This is how many "fries" were in the bag.  Not an unknown issue for the chip industry, though.

Strike two was that none of the "fries" was longer than an inch or so.  They look like real fries...

The insides even look like real fries...

They feel like totally dried out McDonald's fries, and they taste like those super-skinny potato sticks you only eat like once a year.  Not altogether bad, but definitely not fry-like in any way.  Basically these are just thicker versions of potato sticks.  Which begs the question: "Why didn't anyone think of making them bigger before?"

The Grunion liked them anyway.

Not fries so no rating.
