Season’s Choice Garlic Parmesan Fries

A few of my family members are “meat and potatoes” kinds of people. Give them a beef roast and some potatoes cooked long and low in the Crock Pot, or a baked potato and some roasted chicken, or a burger and fries, and they’re happy. I like those foods, too, and I also like trying new flavors and different kinds of foods. I’m the most likely one of us to enjoy novel flavor combinations. This week, Aldi is selling a product that might appeal to the tastes of everyone in my family: garlic parmesan French fries.

Season's Choice Garlic Parmesan Fries

Season’s Choice Garlic Parmesan Fries are an Aldi Find. That means they’re only in stores for a limited time. Each store gets one shipment, and after that sells out, they’re gone unless Aldi decides to bring them back later. Aldi does not offer online ordering if these are sold out at your local store. When these are in stock, you’ll find them in the Aldi Find freezer aisle.

These cost $3.79 for a 14-ounce package at the time of publication. That’s about 27 cents per ounce. One bag contains about four 1-cup servings, which comes out to about 95 cents per serving. These are a product of France.

If you’re looking out for allergens, these contain milk. They may contain wheat, soy, egg, and nuts.

Ingredients are pre-fried potato (potato, sunflower oil), grated cheese mixture (milk, salt), olive oil, garlic cube, garlic powder, natural flavoring (yeast extract, salt, natural flavoring substances), and salt.

A 1-cup serving has 150 calories, 7 grams of total fat (9% DV), 1.13 grams of saturated fat (6% DV), 180 mg of sodium (8% DV), 20 grams of total carbohydrates (7% DV), 2 grams of dietary fiber (7% DV), 0.6 grams of total sugars, no added sugars, and 3 grams of protein.

The bag has directions for cooking these from frozen in either a conventional oven or in an air fryer.

To bake in the oven, preheat the oven to 390 degrees. Pour the frozen fries onto a baking sheet and place on the middle rack. Bake for 10 minutes.

To air fry, preheat the air fryer to 360 degrees. Put frozen fries into the air fryer and cook at 360 degrees for 10 minutes without using any oil.

After air frying.

I cooked these in my air fryer, and it took longer than the directions indicated to get these anywhere remotely crispy and golden. I cooked these for 14 minutes, and some of them still weren’t as crispy as I would have liked. They have some garlic flavor, but we didn’t think these had as much cheese flavor, and the flavors aren’t all that strong. We liked these okay on their own merits as French fries, but we’ve had more memorable regular fries, and we were hoping for more flavor with these. Also, it doesn’t affect the taste, but we noticed that most of these fries were really short.

The Verdict:

Season’s Choice Garlic Parmesan Fries offer a twist on regular French fries. It took a while to get these to crisp up in our air fryer, and while these are decent fries, we wish they were a little more flavorful.

    I had a bag last night. They were soggy. Even after baking twice the recommended baking time and upping the oven temp slightly. A bit disappointing.
