Aldi Shoppers Are Psyched To Try These New Garlic & Herb Fries

Whether you're dining out at a Michelin-starred restaurant or a fast food joint, every main course tastes better when accompanied by a basket of golden french fries. That's why, when a server asks, "Would you like fries with that?" most people will answer with a resounding yes. While these potato-based goodies taste perfectly delicious on their own, there are countless sauces and seasonings to pair with fries, from malt vinegar to shaved truffles. If you really want to go all out, there's always poutine, which is the best way to turn this quintessential side into a main course.

The only downside to this savory snack? Even with the invention of the air fryer, french fries almost never taste quite as good when you try to make them at home. This makes curling up with a plate of fries in front of the TV rather more logistical. But fear not, couch potatoes! If you are a fry zealot, as well as a homebody, Aldi has just answered all of your fries-at-home-related prayers.

Aldi's garlic and herb fries look close to restaurant quality

Aldi has released a highly flavorful variety of frozen fries, shows a picture on Aldi fan Instagram account @adventuresinaldi. Seasoned with garlic and herbs, these medium-thick fries look mighty close to the ones you can get at a restaurant. All it takes to get them hot, crispy, and in tip-top condition is 20 minutes in the oven. The best part? A 1.4-pound bag will set you back just $1.99.

"can't wait to try these!!! I'm gonna try them in the air fryer!" @adventuresinaldi captioned their post. Fans of this discount grocery store chain mirrored equal amounts of excitement in the comment section. One user who has already tried out these frozen snacks confirmed that they are just as good as they look: "I made them this weekend. They are delicious and get very crispy!!! My family loved them." According to Aldi, these frozen fries are limited and may not be available in all stores, so get your hands on them if you spy them in the freezer section.
