It used to be we could only satisfy our fast-food fry cravings with a trip to the local drive-through. Now, it's as easy as picking up a bag from the grocery store freezer. Or is it? Our panelists were disappointed at some of the options of fast-food fries we found at local grocery stores. We heated all of the fries in the oven straight from the freezer, according to package directions. Some were soggy, some were bland and some were too greasy. The winners, though, will likely find their way into the freezers of our panelists to serve alongside burgers and hot dogs at their next barbecues.
