Fries around the world! Mashup

Some foods are pretty much universal, and one of those beloved foods is french fries. Whether you serve them home-style, in a carton or whatever.. From a paper bag…we bet you won’t just eat one. But not all French fries are like each other, not all are even made of potatoes, and condiments are definitely not the same around the world. Even if we don’t always agree on french fry toppings around the world, we do agree that french fries are a standard food to put on any menu.
