Are we talking about French's French Fried Onions ?


I stopped using them about a year ago, because of two-in-a-row Ammonia smell...

I guess if they aren't packaged properly, or are old/beyond sell by.. that the oil they were fried in can cause a rancid smell ( and taste).
Yuck.

... Don't know about 'rings' ---- It must be something different



.and it turns out, it was 2014 when I stopped using the product... time flies !

You know Aldi has deep fried onions just like French's, Chef's Cupboard brand.

Not sure if they're actually French's just packed under a different name or not.

We started making our own fried onion straws, much better than the canned ones. Gave up green bean casserole for my summer squash casserole.

I found this.
Pardon their French in some of the comments.

Furthermore, when these were made under the Durkee brand, there was never a problem with taste.
Used to buy them all the time and would even pop a few straight out of the can.

lest I forget, again . . a follow up

took them back to the store - Customer Service had no issues - actually they explained a whole bunch of people returned the stuff for the same reason.

in doing a little surfing, I found the chemical/stinky/plastic-y/rancid/etc smell issues dates back to 2010. apparently French's (parent McCormick) just doesn't care.
