Potato Corner’s Sweet Corn Fries Might Just Be Our New Favorite

September 7, 2019

French fries are the only carb I love as much as rice. Bread never really does anything for me, except when there’s an excess of meat and vegetables between two slices. But French fries, whether fried to a crisp or as that last soggy piece seasoned with the last bits of salt, never fails to comfort me after a long day spent at work, then school, and commuting back home. But when the stress mounts, there are only two places to get fries for me: McDonald’s or Potato Corner. Potato Corner offers three flavors that never grow old: cheese, barbeque and sour cream. Once in a while, a new flavor comes up that not only spoils regulars for choice but also adds another reason to care less about counting calories. Potato Corner upped its game with the Sweet Corn fries flavor.

For anyone that ever thought French fries were too salty, the Sweet Corn fries sweet flavor prevent this from being too salty, but without losing that savory edge. This flavor also has the same taste as Tomi Chips with the addicting flavor making you reaching out for more. I ended up ordering one the other day, still craving the Sweet Corn fries despite my love for the cheesy powder I grew up with. The Sweet Corn fries are less messy on the fingers, sweet enough for the palate, and takes its cue from the addicting effect of Tomi chips. The Sweet Corn fries have yet to reach the classic status of sour cream, cheese and barbeque and are only available in some branches, but we hope Potato Corner will make it a regulation flavor in the years to come.

I first tried the Sweet Corn fries over at Potato Corner’s store in Bonifacio High Street Central Square. This store stands out from the usual Potato Corner mall stall thanks to the place’s clean lines and high ceilings, plus a wire game that’s fun (or stressful) to play while waiting for your order. You might want to grab a cup of Sweet Corn fries before catching a movie here or if you happen to be hanging around the BGC area.

  1. Whatever, I’m getting cheese fries.

    That being said, tried this just now, it reminds me of the old Regent Sweet Corn snack I always had as a kid. So good 🙂

    Have you tried drizzling melted butter/ margarine/ shortening on top?
    It’s French fries! It’s corn on the cob! It’s popcorn! It’s all of the above!
    Mind. Blown.

    I daresay these fries will DEFINITELY appeal to me, seeing how I was probably the only fan of those “buttered corn”-flavoured Humpy Dumpy corn chips years ago. :p

  5. […] as you’ve read in our Filipino style chili recipe and our What We’re Loving Now feature on Potato Corner’s Sweet Corn fries. Tomi Sweet Corn Chips delivers a sweetness a homegrown Pinoy will never get sick […]

  6. They have Potato Corner in Jakarta! So glad to see that our local brand has branched out to our neighboring countries. Now THAT is world class. Doesn’t that make you proud? I heard they have branches in North America, too!
