Potatoes come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and have been a staple to round out a meal or eat as a snack for as long as history can remember.
The average American consumes around 30 pounds of french fries each year, which means that french fries are more than deserving of a day to celebrate their existence.
Although it’s not certain how July 13th became the date to honor the food, it’s certain that many people will do their part in celebrating the holiday.
Many food chains are offering deals on french fries for the special day, and we’ve compiled a list so you can eat as many fries as your heart desires on this day.
