DETROIT – Happy National French Fry Day!

Because it is National Fry Day here are some fun facts about this delicious snack.

  • French fries are not French at all; the French fry originated in Belgium, the little country between France and Germany.

  • French Fries have many names, from chips in England, to pomme frites or frittes in France, Belgium, and Germany.

  • Different countries eat fries different ways.  In Canada, poutine (which are fries topped with gravy and cheese curds) is practically a food group; England loves their Malt Vinegar and places in Europe love mixing their ketchup and mayonnaise together.

  • So in honor of this glorious day, Vote 4 the Best wants to know what’s the best way to eat French fries.  Maybe you love just plain o’ fries or do you love to add Chili and Cheese to them.

    Respond below.  We want to see what the best of the best is.
