Review: Wendys Natural-Cut Fries

Wendys Natural

Despite not being a typical French fry, Wendys natural-cut fries will resemble the previous fries in appearance. Not all of the cut is square. The potato is sliced such that one side aids in heat retention and the other maintains crispness.

Its first restaurant was opened in 1969 in Columbus. The brand is committed to improving service quality, freshness, taste, and customer satisfaction. After 41 years of using the same french fries recipe, Natural-Cut Fries underwent a major overhaul to provide their customers with crisper fries with more flavor.

Wendy’s has stuck to their original natural-cut fries recipe for over 40 years. In 2010, Wendy’s launched its wendys Natural-Cut Fries With Sea Salt in the USA. These fries were created to offer hotter, tastier fries to their customers.

Wendys Natural-Cut Fries are made with 100% Russet potatoes, fresh sea salt, and a richer natural flavor than other french fries.

Different types of Wandys natural-cut fries

Although listed as an additional item, Wendys natural-cut fries can also be used to make Wendy’s bacon fondue fries (limited edition), Baconator fries, and bacon jalapeno cheese fries. They can be ordered as a side item or individually and are available in sizes ranging from small, medium, large, and extra large. Prices range from $1 to just over $2.


Wendys Natural-Cut Fries Review

Wendys Original Frosty is a popular way of pairing Wendys Natural-Cut Fries. It tastes like something you would find in a 1950’s diner with checkered tiles and a jukebox in the corner. It is the perfect combination of sweet and salty, hot and cold. You have to be in the right mood.

They are delicious on their own, and can be eaten as “frog sticks dipped into a black cow” (fun 50’s diner lingo: “french fries dipped with a chocolate frosty milkshake”)


While some customers still prefer Wendy’s original fries to their new recipe, the majority of customers consider the new one a substantial improvement over the original.

Natural-Cut Fries are stuffed with crispy golden fries and a warm, fluffy inside. Wendy’s uses Russet potatoes to make the fries. This gives them extra crunch and natural flavor. The fries have an earthy taste, but they are cut so the skins are only at the ends of the fries and not the long sides.


These fries require less preparation than the originals. This is because the potatoes don’t need to be boiled to remove their skins. Sea salt is added to give the fries a natural taste. However, I couldn’t tell the difference between the old salt and the new salt. 

Wendys vegetable oil is not very oily. I appreciate the fact that it does not contain animal fats. Although it affects the flavor, this makes it a healthier option for those with dietary restrictions or allergies.


Wendy’s avoids artificial flavors, preservatives, and artificial ingredients whenever possible. Like other top fast-food restaurants, they seem to be making progress in providing quality, fresh ingredients. Wendy’s does quality assurance audits at farms where they source their ingredients.

The Quality Code covers the following areas:

  • Food safety and food ingredients
  • Well-being and health of farm animals
  • Human rights and labor practices
  • Business practices that are environmentally sustainable
  • Integrity and business ethics

All of their nutrition and health information is disclosed on all menu items. They also note that they don’t use ingredients that can cause major food allergies. It is important to check if you are following a strict diet. Wendys natural-cut fries, for example, can be considered vegan at certain restaurants.

Other locations might use oil to fry their fries, which can be used to make other items such as fish, wheat, and milk. Despite not having trans fat, Wendy’s natural-cut fries contain hydrogenated oils and are highly processed, even though they are called “natural”.


These fries are made with Russet potatoes, and the skins are left on just like Jack-in-the-Box used. This gives the fries a savory, earthy taste. The oil’s flavor is however a little bland. The oil seems to be trying to make up for the lackluster flavor with sea salt, which I find excessive. I prefer flavors that are infused, and not just layered on top.

The best way to enhance and balance the flavor of the fries is to use my favorite sauce mix, ketchup or mustard. If I’m feeling nostalgic, I’ll dip some super salty fries in a Wendy’s Frosty.

Final Verdict

I would not normally order Wendy’s Natural-Cut fries by themselves. I would rate Wendy’s Natural-Cut Fries a 1 to Mc. Donald’s fries would get a 7 on a scale of 1 to Mc.

If they’ve been out of the kitchen for more than a few moments, their score would drop to a 5 or 6! They must be crispy and fresh!
