National Onion Rings Day

National Onion Rings Day is June 22nd, 2015. You may ask, why is there a special day for this? Well, according to Food.com, “Onion rings have been a restaurant favorite for 100-plus years.” Plus a lot of people like onion rings. Restaurants like selling them. So there. That’s why we have a National Onion Rings day.

Who invented the Onion Ring and deserves credit for this special day? No one knows for sure. Some point to Crisco. The company placed an advertisement in The New York Times Magazine in 1933. The ad contained a recipe for onion rings. Kirby's Pig Stand (the first drive in restaurant in the USA) claims they invented onion rings. Like the number of licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Pop, we may never know for certain where onion rings came from, but they are easy to find.

You can get onion rings at fast food restaurants like Burger King. You can get them at fancy restaurants and steak houses too. You can even find recipes online from famous chefs like Emeril Lagasse. Like French fries, onion rings are a very popular appetizer, side dish, or something to eat in addition to your Whopper and Coke.

CashCrate reminds you to brush your teeth after indulging in onion rings. Contrary to popular belief, onion breath is not a wonderful thing to share.
