more talk of food today 🙌🏻 the best topic for a blog post (other than space and mythbusting) 😬
much our last food fact (where we discussed the great wasabi conspiracy … read that ->here<-) we’ve been lied to once again 😭
#tdil that french fries 🍟 didn’t actually originate in france 😳 (why so many lies food industry?!)
apparently, french fries actually originated in belgium 🙃 and were an alternative to fried fish over winter #welcomechange
you see, in the 1600s, the poorer villagers living in the meuse valley would often catch fish and then fry them #earlybatteredcod #dontknowifactualcod.
the problem with this is that over winter #winteriscoming the rivers would freeze over ❄️ … which is mighty inconvenient. at that point, people would start frying potatoes instead 👍🏻 et voila – french fries.
well, they weren’t called french fries back then; it wasn’t until world war one that the term was coined by american soldiers. basically, they thought they were tasty and needed a name … belgians speak french and they’re fried 😂 #tadaaa
there you go! 👍🏻 french fries aren’t french 🙃 they’re belgian and named by the americans … the french had literally nothing to do with them!
the food industry need to stop lying to us 😒 #itsaconspiracy 👽 … anyway, that’s all from me today!
see ya again 👾 #tdil
