I bet Dave Thomas is rolling in his grave right now: A review of Wendy's new fries

What ass-clown signed off on these awful new french fries? 

[deleted] 1324565298

Dear Wendy's, why do you keep doing bonehead shit? First, you let Dave Thomas pass away. Then you got rid of the fuckin superbar. If that wasn't enough, you ditched the yellow cups and fry containers. Now you go and ruin the only decent fast food fries because of whining from social media dipshits. Now you serve the same potato-esque garbage they have at Burger King. Nice job saving 7 cents per serving on your Sysco truck order. We know you won't use the savings to pay your front line workers a living wage.

You know, if it weren't for the bomb-ass chili you still offer, there would be no reason to ever visit a Wendy's again. Can't wait until your board of clowns takes it off the menu for some dumb-ass wrap or flavored coffee.

The rest of this essay will be gifs that convey the way I feel about 2021 Wendy's.

And Wendy's - should you write this off as drivel from some entitled millenial, I'll have you know that my grandmother, were she still alive, would agree with me 100% and would write Dave Thomas a letter about the matter. And I have no doubts he wold have responded personally, because he was a great man. Be better 2021 super Corpo Wendy's.

      Doesn't Wendy's change up their fries every couple of years. Feels like Deja Vu man.

        I wish they would go back to spicy nuggets being cooked to order. Most of the time i end up with nuggets that have been sitting and they taste like crap after they cool down.

      The pre-sea salt ones were the best. They’ve been shit ever since that change anyway

        I've not had the new new shit, but if you don't mind waiting, the trick is to ask for fries with no salt. They'll drop a new batch and you get them fresh as Will Smith since they salt all the fries hanging around under the heatlamp

          Fast food workers love doing custom orders for people who think they can game the system. They love it so much sometimes they put a little extra on the order

            Note that redshak hasn't clarified what that extra thing was.

            It wasn't salt

            Used to work there, only reason I heard of this. Not a big deal to drop a basket of fries, as you're doing it all the time anyway when it's busy. And if it's not busy you can't blame a mofo for wanting fresh fries, it's not your food cost. Zero effort, no one gave a shit if this happened

        Nah I like the skins, but too inconsistent.

      Their new fries are: better than the worst fries I've had from Wendy's, no where near the best fries I've had from Wendy's.

      Overall the texture is worse because the crisp is too like... heavy? And thick. It lessens the more delicate starch that fries are good for. I'm sure it's a more consistent product but damn. They could have achieved with stricter process controls and not given up on quality.

      I had them for the first time tonight and they failed the all-important Frosty-dipping test. :(

      The last time I was in a Wendy's I told myself I would never go back.

      Completely empty store and it was over 10 minutes to get a spicy chicken sandwich. AND IT WAS COLD WHEN I GOT IT!
      The chili? Had fucking hair in it.

      Never again.

      My 8 year old says “I don’t care if they are different as long as they have the same amount of salt.”

        Thank you. Finally the voice of reason. They're similar but a huge improvement.
