National French Fry Day – July 13

NATIONAL FRENCH FRY DAY

Each year on July 13, many people will participate in the celebration of National French Fry Day by enjoying one of the many varieties of the classic food.

French fries, also known as chips, fries, finger chips or French-fried potatoes are batons of deep-fried potatoes and are common fixtures at fast food restaurants that are loved by adults and kids alike!

French fries are often complimented with ketchup, ranch dressing, vinegar, mayonnaise, honey mustard, cheese, gravy, or chili. Sometimes the fries are made from sweet potatoes instead of potatoes, are baked instead of fried or are cut up into unusual shapes such as curly fries, waffles fries, crinkle cut fries or tornado fries.

The expression “French Fried Potatoes” first occurs in print, in English, in the 1856 work Cookery for Maids of All Work by E. Warren.

It is believed by some that the term “French” was introduced to the potatoes when the American soldiers arrived in Belgium during World War I and consequently tasted Belgian fries.  It is suggested that they called them “French” as it was the official language of the Belgian Army at that time.

To celebrate National French Fry Day, share some French fries with your friends and have them seasoned, cut and shaped how you like them!
