French Fry Facts


Do you think that French Fries came from France?


First, let me tell you about facts and fiction!

A fact is something true, and you can prove that it is true.

Fiction is imaginary, and it can’t be proven accurate.


Now, let me tell you where French Fries came from! They originated in Belgium, a Country in Western Europe. History states that the people of Belgium have been frying potatoes since the late 1600s. The French Fries were originally called Pomme de Terre Frittes. They say the name French Fries was given to the Pomme de Terre Frittes by American Soldiers in Belgium during World War I. The soldiers named them French Fries because the Belgians who introduced them to the French Fries spoke French!
