It's National French Fry Day — How Many Types of Deep-Fried Spuds Have You Tried?


In honor of National French Fry Day (yes, this actually exists), here's a checklist to determine how many types of deep-fried spuds you've tried. You might not care what type of fry you're eating as long as there are multiple aiolis, mustards, and other sauces to dip them in, or maybe you are a devout curly fry fan — we totally get that. If you haven't tried some of these fry forms — we can't blame you if you haven't come across the french fry hot dog yet — then we suggest diving in for French Fry Day and getting to know your deep-fried potatoes even better.
