Friday Is National Fry Day--As in French Fries
Do you plan to enjoy some fries on Friday? Which places in Niles and Morton Grove have the best?
Friday the 13th is allegedly an unlucky day, but if you love French fries, July 13 is your lucky day.
July 13 is National French Fry Day!
According to Tom & Eddie's, "the average American eats about 29 pounds of fries annually, an impressive statistic that proves their popularity."
Tom & Eddie's also provided this historical insight in a recent announcement on Vernon Hills Patch: "French fries did not originate in France as the name implies but in Belgium during the 1600′s. The term 'French fries' was coined in World War I by American soldiers who were introduced to them in Belgium. They should be called 'Belgium fries,' right? They were so named because Belgians speak French."
