Don’t call them French Fries. Call them Bel-Fries. American soldiers stationed in Belgium were introduced to French Fries during World War I. Since the language of the Belgian army was French, American soldiers nicknamed the delicious fried potatoes “French Fries.” The name stuck, and decades later Americans are still giving credit to the wrong country. It is time to give Belgium credit and reinvent the name to Bel-Fries.
