Ore-Ida Simply All Natural Homestyle Wedges

Purchased Price: $2.99
Size: 24 oz. bag
Purchased at: Target
Rating: 6 out of 10
Pros: Has a fluffy interior and slightly crispy exterior. Having the chorus of Tina Turner’s “The Best” pop into my head every time I see the packaging. Made with Grade A potatoes. Made with olive oil. Goes great with ketchup, but tastes fine naked. There’s enough in the bag for four big servings. If you’re into all-natural products and too lazy to cut up raw potatoes, season them, and bake them, these are perfect for you.
Cons: Only a slight flavor improvement over regular partially natural potato wedges. There’s a noticeable freezer-ness to them; people will not mistake these for potato wedges from fresh raw potatoes. Didn’t see any sea salt on the wedges. Packaging makes it seem like it’s made with only olive oil, but it’s also made with vegetable, canola, sunflower and/or cottonseed oils. Oven preparation only.

    I wish they would stop saying ‘Sea Salt’!
    ALL salt is SEA SALT!
    Salt from a mine was once in a now dried up ocean.
    The only difference of salt recovered from a body of water is how many more people and animals have peed and pooped in that water.

    I bought and made these last week. I also pointed out to the hubs that the package highlighted the olive oil but really it was a blend. We both liked them and thought the potato flavor was more pronounced then the original Ore-Idas. I actually deep fried them as it was hot and I didn’t want the oven on since we are sans a.c. I also enjoyed not needing to wash my hand to get the greasy coating off after reaching into the bag just a simple rinse and done.
