French fries! I love that you made a post about French fries since a lot of people enjoy them. I like your post a lot, it’s really nice. I knew that French fries originated in Belgium because there were a lot of people having a debate about it. I never knew the story though, it’s interesting that a long time back Belgians used to use potatoes and fry them to make French fries because that’s what they did with fish.
I still think that we should call them French fries, why? Like you said in your post, they called them French fries because the Belgians spoke French even though a lot of people can mistake this as the country France, more people need to learn that “French” is a language that is used in other countries and not just France. If we called them Belgian fries, then people will get confused. We are so used to calling them French fries that if we changed it then it will take a long time for people to adapt to this change.
I did a little research on my own, did you know that Belgian fries are different from the French fries we eat today? The Belgians used to call them “Les frites” The difference between Frites and fries are that they’re fried twice.

I liked your post a lot! It’s very nice how you took something that is your passion and made a post about it. Though I don’t run often, I used to a lot last year but not in competitions or marathons. That’s so amazing that you’re the best runner on your team! Do you plan to continue running in the future?
I understand you a lot, my class is like a family too. They are annoying and hard to deal with sometimes but then when they’re gone, I really miss them and their company!

Your post is very nice! I used to love eating candy a lot! Now, I don’t eat it very often, but I still enjoy it when I can. The candy I dislike the most would be Twix, and in your post, it’s ranked number 3 by Top Ranker! You said that your favorite candy is York Peppermint Patty, I kind of like it but I would prefer other candies. Even though my favorite ice cream flavor is mint chocolate chip I’m not a York Peppermint Patty person.
Here are a few of the candies I like: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Twizzlers or Sour patch kids. My real favorite candy would have to be any sort of sour gummy.
