Chick-fil-A Testing Sweet Potato Waffle Fries

Chick-fil-A seems to be toying with the addition of Sweet Potato Waffle Fries to their extended sides menu, with reports of it being tested in the Exton, PA areas turning up on the Grub Grade blog earlier today. According to the descriptions, the item comes by way of asking for an upgrade to their traditional waffle fries, resulting in a $1.20 upgrade charge per order.

No word on final pricing for the Sweet Potato Waffle Fries if they do indeed get a broader roll out, but they are reported to have a nice sweet potato flavor, both mild and sweet, overall a bit softer and less crunchy than the regular waffle fries.

Anyone out there tried these bad boys, or have an interest in trying them? Sounds like a nice addition to the Chick-fil-A lineup.

I had these the other day and they are delicious!! Crisp, sweet and flavorful–WOW, a great addition to the already wonderful menu selections at Chic-fil-a. I will be going back for more!!!

These are very good! They have a bit too much “batter” on them. And they don’t advertise the upcharge. It was a bit of an unwelcomed surprise.

 I thought the sweet potato fries were crispier than the regular fries (which is a good thing in my book) or maybe it was the coating that’s on them. Yum!

I generally don’t care for their fries, unless I know they have just cooked em and substitute cole slaw – but these were fantastic.

Very good, they’ve had them in Athens since February but they were not originally in the waffle fry shape and they came with a caramel dipping sauce which was good.
