Product Review: McCain’s Frozen French Fries
After my successful attempt at making French Fries at home, I was intrigued enough to give frozen ones a shot. I’ve read Vir Sanghvi (prominent journalist and noted food critic), whom I look up to, praising McCain’s line of frozen products often. I got a pack for Rs 60 from a Star Bazaar outlet and most departmental shops stock McCain’s these days.
Here’s my experience and the outcome:
The packet says fries don’t need thawing but in my experience, it turns out better if you let them thaw for a couple of minutes. It takes another couple of minutes to deep fry and you have firm, tasty, McDonald’s type French Fries ready.
Verdict: They’re definitely tasty but frozen and packaged meals do nothing for your health. Zero nutritional value. So what I’d say is that give McCain a shot if you entertain often or have frequent visitors at home since they make for a quick, no hassle snack. For daily or regular consumption, it’s a big no-no.
