Here’s a great blog post about Veggie Fries from Annie Stow at her Stowed Stuff blog:


Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Veggie Fries. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. All opinions and reviews are my own.

Meet Andrew Stow, the only Stow kid who got tasty homemade baby food and was doing some great eating with his fancy purees. The only thing he wants to eat now at 19 months? Yogurt, Cheerios and french fries. In fact, I think he ate 784 french fries while we were away last week in Florida. Not good. Why won’t my kids eat their veggies?

Well, move over french fries! We’d like to introduce you all to VEGGIE FRIES! They’ve still got that crispy crunch and they’re the first vegetable french-fry to hit the market!

All four Stow Kids are pretty bad eaters when it comes to vegetables. We can’t even get them to eat their peas in their pasta anymore! Not so sure what is going on with that and when it will get better, but we’re super happy that we’ve recently discovered the goodness of Veggie Fries.

I baked some for dinner one night while their cousins were here and I told all the kids that they had to taste BOTH kinds of Veggie Fries – BROCCOLI and CARROTS. Their wasn’t much moaning and groaning when they were presented with their dinner plates.

It was a hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill kind of night and once the Veggie Fries were served (albeit with some ketchup), the kids started yelling, “I like them! Mmmmmmm. They’re good!”

“Say what now?”

“Try the carrot ones. They’re my favorite.”

“No, I like the green ones better.”

“Who are these kids? Is this Candid Camera?”

The minute these fancy looking fries came out of the oven looking all perfectly golden and crispy, I had to try them. In fact, all the adults were dying to try them and we loved them even more than the kids! Veggie Fries are good!

Great news for local friends who can now find Veggie Fries in the frozen section at your local Stop & Shop. From May 15th through June 11th Stop & Shop is hosting a promotion for Veggie Fries where shoppers will receive $0.50 off their Veggie Fries purchases. You can purchase two of the four varieties in Stop & Shop stores:

  • Broccoli
  • Carrot
  • Tuscan Bean & Herb (not sold at Stop & Shop)
  • Chickpea & Red Pepper (not sold at Stop & Shop)

I’m sure you may know some picky eaters too, so next time you shop, pick up some Veggie Fries from the freezer section and opt for these delicious fries that are a better-for-you option for the whole family! I promise, your kids will love these all natural, non-GMO ingredients and gluten-free Veggie Fries! Veggie Fries are also Vegan and free of soy, dairy, tree nuts, peanuts and eggs. With two servings of vegetables per serving, Veggie Fries provide a good source of fiber, an excellent xource of Vitamin A or C, are very low in sodium, and provide 3+ grams of Protein per serving.
