Wendy’s is stepping up its French fry game to make sure they’re still hot, fresh and crispy when you order them through a delivery service.

The fast food chain made an announcement on Thursday about the new technique, which would include a different cut, skin left on and a batter.

You will have to judge for yourself to see if you think it was worth the trouble to chance their process.

The new “Hot & Crispy Fries” have started to make appearances at some locations, but should be available nationwide by mid-September.
