“ Brand: Inspire / Type: Frozen Food „
Both me and my flatmate get bored of chips! We regulary try other potato offerings and when I spotted these 'Inspire' potato wedges at either 60p a bag (in several different marinades) or two for a pound (like I bought them) I decided that as they were called Spanish style that we should try them out as to me they sounded really exotic lol!
The bag is orange and see-through plastic in colour with a photograph of Greg Wallace on the front who has had a hand in coming up with these for Inspire and there is a photograph of the wedges on there too. We are also told tgat they are Inspire Spanish Style Potato Wedges 'Ready to roast with a smoked paprika dressing', there is an at a glance nutritional chart shown, the weight is stated (which in this case is 500g and the only sized I have seen them available to purchase in by the way) and the best before date is clearly stamped on there too. Other information on the back of the bag includes being told a bit about the propduct, cooking instructions are given as is a full nutritional chart, ingredients and allergy advice and contact details for the manufacturer are given. Nice enough, easy to rip open bag this is with plenty of wedges in a sauce.
Like I say you get lots of wedges, skin on the outside of the wedge with what is a plain, oily orangy coloured sauce all over them. To cook them you simply pop them in the oven for around 45-50 minutes, with the sauce thats on them well basted on the potatoes and that is that. I found them too cook well in that time.
However these were simply ok. To me and my flatmate they simply tasted of potatoes and we could see the orangy sauce had melted into the wedge but couldn't taste any flavouring at all! Not a hint of that smoked paprika was available to our tastebuds at all though we could see it was meant to be there of course
However on the wedge front we liked them. Nice, soft potatoes with a slightly crispy outer skin they were nicely enough seasoned tasted and a little sweet but in a very natural way and although the sauce appears greasy it actually doesn't taste that way (or at all lol).
I think these being called Spanish style is a bit rich but as far as the wedge itself goes we like them well enough!
