As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemakers program I was given a coupon for a free bag of Alexia frozen foods. I have seen the Alexia Food bags in the freezer section but I hadn't had a chance to try them until now. I was surprised by the large selection of products that were stocked at my store.
There were so many varieties to choose from. There are appetizers such as onion rings, mozzarella sticks, and cheddar bites. Then they have several artisan breads like french and ciabatta. Their biggest line of products are for potatoes which are what I ended up trying. I couldn't pick just one item so I chose two!
First we tried the Oven Fries with Rosemary and Garlic. We had these with lamb pitas and they were delicious. The potatoes browned on the bottom and were filled with flavors of rosemary and garlic. I sprinkled a little salt on top and they were ready to go. They tasted fresh and pretty close to homemade.
The second product we tried were the Oven Reds with olive oil, Parmesan, and garlic. These potatoes have the skin still on them and taste fresh cut. The Parmesan and garlic shine through and give the potatoes a fabulous flavor. I really enjoyed how simple yet tasty the products from Alexia were.
In addition to all of the traditional potatoes Alexia is currently hosting a "Reinvent a Classic" campaign on Facebook. They want Alexia fans to help decide their newest french fry flavor! The four flavors you can choose from are Thai Spiced Sweet Julienne Fries, Bruschetta Waffle Fries, Herbs de Provence and Garlic Sweet Potato Fries, and Classic Dill Julienne Fries. Each of the four flavors was created by a food blogger! I've already put in my vote for the Bruschetta Waffle Fries but you can have your vote by visiting www.facebook.com/alexiafoods.
