Say it ain't so!

After more than 50 years, Morey's Piers in Wildwood has announced that they're dumping beloved Curley fries for kale chips and other healthy food options.

Before you rip up your lifetime Morey's Piers Pass, we're thinking this is part of an elaborate April Fool's Day joke - launched a day earlier.


In a press release from Morey's, representatives said, "Morey’s Piers took to social media, asking guests what kind of new concession items they wanted to see in 2019.  Morey’s food and beverage team reviewed all the comments and emails submitted and it was clear that guests wanted more nutritious and healthier food options when visiting the piers. Some of the comments included more low carb food options, a healthy snack shack food stand, veggies with an assortment of dipping sauces, fruit sushi and more. "

So about those options....

"The beloved Curley’s Fries are being replaced with items that include, vegan and paleo friendly crispy kale chips brushed with avocado oil and baked with a seasoning blend of garlic powder, cumin, chili powder, and cayenne. Roasted chick peas tossed in garlic and herb seasoning, sprinkled with parmesan cheese, seaweed salad using locally sourced seaweed, and homemade fruit and nut bars that are an easy on-the-go-snack, packing a ton of nutrition. "

In the meantime, Morey's seems to be April Foolin' a lot of folks on their Facebook page:
