I'm pretty sure they were developed by a Dr. Hossenfeffer in Zimbabwe in 1492.... :) Nikko

My information is that they did indeed originate in Belgium, but they got the name French fries from American troops in WWI, who were given them by Belgian soldiers. The Americans wrongly assumed that the Belgian soldiers were French.
