On July 13, many people (and maybe you) will enjoy one of our most classic foods..the French Fry.

- Burger King: Get two Whopper meals for $10 until July 15 — that’s two Whoppers, two small drinks and two small fries
A little bit of history: The expression “French Fried Potatoes” first occurs in print in English in the 1856 work Cookery for Maids of All Work by E. Warren.
It is believed by some that the term “French” was introduced to the potatoes when the American soldiers arrived in Belgium during World War I and consequently tasted Belgian fries. It is suggested that they called them “French” as it was the official language of the Belgian Army at that time.
