Did you know that Burger King had a line of snack foods independent from their restaurants? It’s true! I’ve tried a few of their offerings in the past with mixed results. I had never seen their Hot Fries before, so I couldn’t wait to try them.
From the look of the bag, these fries look red hot. The flames on the bottom of the bag (which Burger King usually reserves to describe their flame-broiled burgers) indicate that these are truly hot fries! The description on the bag adds fuel to the fire (pun clearly intended).
Burn on? Let’s hope not. I only want them to burn on the way down.
When I opened the bag, they weren’t as nearly as red hot as I thought they would be. They are more, fry-colored.
If you look closely, (and I hope you are, this is a deadly serious topic), you can see the spices. They taste pretty spicy, too! Make sure you have a drink handy when enjoying this snack. The taste of cayenne pepper and other assorted peppers comes through clearly. The drawback of this snack, though, is the slightly oily taste from the fries. It almost tasted like they were fried in some old oil that should have been changed. Which kind of made me think of Burger King fries, so well done I guess.
If you want to “Have It Your Way”, and you want hot fries, then this is the snack for you. If not, have it your way. See what I did there?
