Review: Wendy's - Seasoned Home-Style Potatoes

Wendy's Seasoned Home-Style Potatoes are the offered in the same slot occupied by hash browns and tater tots at other fast food chains. They feature skin-on, half-wheels of battered and fried potatoes, seasoned with sea salt, cracked pepper, and garlic powder.

It's part of the breakfast value menu and an order cost me 99 cents. The container is about the size of a small fry box.

I liked Wendy's Seasoned Home-Style Potatoes very much. They're not buttery as actual home potatoes, but the fried batter gives them a thin, satisfyingly-crunchy shell, and that crunch persisted even after the potatoes were no longer warm.

They're lightly seasoned with moist tasty potato inside, but a little salty. It looks like they might be over-peppered, but the pepper taste was actually pretty light.

Overall, Wendy's has come up with some mighty fine Seasoned Home-Style Potatoes. They're something different from the current breakfast sides at other chains and, more importantly, they're good. I hope they make it through the test.

  1. All of wendy's breakfast items look very good.

  2. A potato by any other name is a spud.
    Or maybe a tater.

  3. Those do look good, and they are different from the requisite hash browns (shaped in varying shapes) offered at other fast food chains. Potato wedges for breakfast!

  4. "Potato wedges for breakfast!"

    Sure beats a wedgie!!!

  5. Those actually look good. The pictures made my mouth water.

  6. Needs to be an all-day item.
