Happy FRYday! No, it’s not Friday yet, but it’s a day where we celebrate the best side dish ever created (ok, maybe not the best ever but, close enough) FRENCH FRIES.

According to National Today, “The term ‘French fries’ refers to deep-fried slices or strips of potatoes. While the precise origins are unknown, the item hit the culinary scene sometime in the 1700s. It had taken an entire century for potatoes to become widely accepted as food, arriving in Europe in the 1600s.”

On this National French Fry Day, many fast food restaurants are offering free fries: 


McDonald’s is offering a free order of large fries, no purchase is necessary, however, the offer must be claimed through the McDonald’s App.
