I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for McCain Foods. I received a sample to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item as a thank-you for participating.
My parents first introduced me to sweet potato fries, knowing that I never did care for sweet potatoes unless they had sugar in them. I ended up enjoying them so much that I prefer them to regular fries now and regularly serve them with my meals at home for my family.
Of course, I still like a little something sweet to go with them. This marshmallow dip complements them wonderfully, plus it doesn’t take very long at all to make.
For the sweet potatoes I prefer purchasing McCain’s Sweet Potato Fries. They are quick and easy to bake, and turn out much crispier than the ones I try to make at home myself.
I like my sweet potato fries with a little crisp to them so I can drag them through that sticky marshmallow dip! Yum!
McCain has three different sweet potatoes variations: Crinkle Cut, Sweet and Spicy, or Cross Trax (which we like to call Waffle Fries in the Midwest). My personal favorite are the crinkle cut.
I like to add a bit of salt and pepper to them before I serve them. They also have other types of potato products such as Beer Batter Fries, Seasoned Spirals, Wedges, and more.
My husband is very much a “meat and potatoes” type of guy, so we usually serve some form of potato alongside our nightly meal.
They are extremely convenient when we are grilling burgers.
