The Belgium Embassy in the United States of America celebrated National French Fries Day Yesterday, July 13, 2023. They recalled the delicious Belgian fries and shared exciting ideas with people to enjoy delightful dining at Belgium’s great places.
National French Fries Day is celebrated annually on July 13 to recognise and mark the origin of the trendy snack worldwide. Many people had assumptions that French Fries came from France, but in reality, these delightful snacks originated in Belgium.
On this day, many popular franchises sell fries with a free giveaway and discounts. McDonald’s is giving away free fries of any size. Burger 21 also offers free french fries with orders if one uses their loyalty program, like last year’s Patty Perks.
Meanwhile, moving forward from these facts, the most amazing places to enjoy the most incredible fries are given as follows:

Notably, French Fries are one of many foods whose name is most misleading, as the origins of this fat-fried food are in Belgium. The story of French fries creation can be found in a family manuscript dated 1781, which reveals that potatoes were initially cut into the shape of fish and served instead of the fish typically caught in a series of small villages in Belgium.
