Five Food Finds about French Fries
- French fries are, perhaps, poorly-named, since they originate in Belgium and are most popular in America.
- In England these are referred to as "chips"
- Though French fries were invented in Europe, the potatoes, from which they are made, originated in the Americas and were imported.
- Leaving the potato skin on French fries actually leaves in important vitamins that are lost if the skins are peeled away.
