About this Deal
(CBS DETROIT) – What’s your favorite french fry? Everyone seems to have a different opinion. How can you easily find your favorite with so many different restaurants with their own recipe? Why not sample some golden-brown potato slices on National French Fry Day, July 13. Estimates say Americans eat around 20 to 30 pounds per person per year. There are lots of ways to enjoy french fries. You can eat them straight out of a fast food French fry container or make fries at home. Add in all of the different condiments, and these simple potatoes become even more popular.
Note: French fries do have a nutritional stigma attached to them due to high caloric and fat content. But it’s tough to say no to a hot batch — even the ones that are at the bottom of the bag.
1802 – Thomas Jefferson serves “potatoes served in the French manner” at a White House dinner.
