- National Cheddar Fries Day
National Cheddar Fries Day, on April 20, is all about stuffing your face with the best cheddar fries you can get your hands on! Since the day was created by Snuffer's Restaurant and Bar, tradition requires you to head over to their outlet and devour some scrumptious fries. Live too far away from Snuffer's? In that case, just book a table at your favorite eatery or, better yet, stay in and cook your own cheddar fries version for your loved ones. The motto of the day: Eat, eat, and repeat!
HISTORY OF NATIONAL CHEDDAR FRIES DAY
In 2016, Snuffer's Restaurant and Bar in Dallas submitted a request to celebrate a National Cheddar Fries Day. This appeal wasn't surprising at all since the eatery is quite famous for its cheddar fries made from Idaho potato and aged Wisconsin cheese. This delicious creation, however, has existed in Snuffer's since 1978 and gained them national recognition since this was an intriguing variation of the ever-so-famous cheese fries.
Hence, it wasn't a surprise when they asked for a National Cheddar Fries Day. In 2016, the first-ever National Cheddar Fries Day was celebrated where Snuffer's offered free cheddar fries to a few lucky guests as well as the chance to win free cheddar fries for a year. Before your mouth starts watering, let's look at the history of cheese fries.
Cheese fries started being produced in the U.S. around 1952 after Cheez Whiz gained popularity and soon became one of the favorite side dishes of every household. Whether for lunch or dinner, cheese fries became a fast-food item that was filling, tantalizing to the taste buds, and easy to prepare. Today, different variations of cheese fries are found all over the globe — cheddar cheese fries being one of the most famous. Other cheesy versions include mozzarella and Swiss cheese fries.
