There are few things in this world that we can safely say everyone agrees on but one of that small collection of objective truths is this: french fries are tasty. Unfortunately, they are not the healthiest of snacks – until now! These garlicky fries have salty, crispy crunchy outsides, soft insides, and none fat and oil that normal french fries have. So go on, indulge yourself.
