I was fairly enamored with the Great Value Steak Cut fry, so was hoping for similar potato joy here too. This nearly two pound sack of fries is certainly a deal, coming in at $1.68 – well below the price of the big brand names.
Sadly though I wasn’t quite in love with this thinner fry style. Frankly I’m quite sure who the fry is aimed at. They’re neither particular thin nor thick, occupying some weird middle ground of sorts. I suppose there’s someone out there that likes this style, but I tend to find people love a really thin or really thick fry. Let’s call this the fry for those who just can’t decide.
The taste is decent enough, I just prefer more fluffy potato in each mouthful – indeed they seem to have the exact ingredients of the Steak Cut fries I mentioned above.

Are Great Value Regular Cut French Fried Potatoes any good?
Our verdict, 3/5.0. A good fry, but a confused fry. These aren’t thin and crispy nor are they thick and fluffy. They occupy a slightly strange middle ground, but hey, that might be your thing.
