Experts have long disputed the origin of the French Fry, as their creation is claimed by both Belgium and France.
In France, fries supposedly first appeared at ‘Pont Neuf’, the oldest bridge in Paris, where they were sold on the street just before the French Revolution in 1789, the New York Daily News reported. Belgium claims that fries were invented in Namur, a city in the south of the country. However, the Paris origin theory has a long history and has been widely accepted and repeated, according to the Daily News.
If one fry-filled day isn’t enough, Fortune previously reported that a McDonald’s (MCD) in St. Joseph, Mo. is serving all-you-can-eat fries, making it the first restaurant in the fast food chain giant to do so.
So whether you like your fries curly, steak cut, or shoe-string, take advantage of the places today that enjoy giving you deals on fries as much as you like eating them.
