Almost everyone has never heard about "Frispos", however they were very popular in Oc, CA, once they were the initial fried potatoes that Carl's Junior. offered up throughout the 1970s and 1980s.
The fried potatoes were crinkle-decline in shape, coupled with a consistency like mashed taters inside, using the crispy outer covering created during deep frying. These were quite delish.
Really, I have found that Pup-n-Taco once had them as well.
Anyways, a couple of days ago when Carl Karcher died, I published articles here on JFB announcing his dying. Well, I additionally became of publish an identical article on another blog I write, "OCThen", but more tailored for Oc readers. (Connect to it ).
Today someone published a remark with that article that described the key of individuals unusual fried potatoes, and also the process through which they were created. Also, he gave the name, "Frispos".
That french cry product was known as "Frispos". My recollection would be that the Frispos pellets arrived a sizable bag, similar to a bag of oatmeal. We put the dry Frispos into the top machine. Whenever you pressed the button, it measured some Frispos right into a tube, injected tepid to warm water to create a paste after which it had been pressed via a grate (think squeezing play doh from certainly one of individuals play doh machines) and because the Frispo "dough" arrived on the scene the grate, a cutter went backwards and forwards losing the "fries", that have been then put in the fryer.
So using the name, Used to do a Search, and located articles within the Riverside Press Enterprise, that also described why Carl's Junior. stopped using Frispos. Essentially, it had been a logistical problem.
"All the process was conducted in the kitchen area (mixing, developing, cooking), making it operationally labor-intensive and too hard to sustain during occasions of heavy volume, which ran the chance of degrading the caliber of the meals presentation.
The crinkle-fries were eliminated in support of the traditional, shoestring Fried potatoes you discover within our restaurants now."
That's everything you Carl's Junior. fanatics! The storyline of individuals fantastic crinkle-cut fries.
That's interesting! I, too, fondly recall the "frispos" and also the amazing roast beef sandwich (using the entire pepper slapped on the top) and miss each of Them. There used to be weird, enormous soda containers for his or her largest size that looked similar to milk cartons.
God, individuals fries were good.
My dear goodness, I miss individuals fries. I did previously write the organization annually approximately and get what went down for them, rather than had a reply. I did not understand it was really specialized equipment -- I simply figured the fry company failed or something like that. Wow.
I did previously love the small ketchup tubs they'd, too. You can stack Them.
So. Can there be in whatever way possible to find individuals fries (anywhere) again? was there a producer from the product which Carl's Junior. made? I swear when they marketed the "old fries" were back there will be a hurry in it. You are right individuals fries were good!
I had been a supervisor for Arby's in MD.
We used Frispo's too. In my opinion Fundamental Home Foods was the producer from the product.
they sampled great hot, but when cold, terrible. they appeared as if Christmas trees when done.
