Good thing July 13 is National French Fry Day, because potatoes and tomatoes account for more than half of all vegetables consumed by Americans every year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The reason, according to the Washington Post, is our national love affair with french fries and ketchup.  

The origins of french fries, according to National Geographic, might not have come from France at all, but from Belgium, as American soldiers in World War I mislabeled the favorite food of French-speaking Belgian troops. Whether this is how french fries began, “would you like fries with that?” is now part of the cultural lexicon. Modern Americans eat 2 million tons of french fries annually, according to Fox News. That’s 30 pounds of french fries consumed by Americans every year.
