Food deals at KFC, Popeyes and more

Fried chicken is one of the most popular dishes among Americans, so it comes as no surprise that there is a National Fried Chicken Day, which takes place on Saturday, July 6th.

Only a few foods are preferred over fried chicken in the U.S.: hamburgers, fries and grilled cheese sandwiches, according to YouGov’s regularly updated list of the most popular American foods. Fried chicken was 83 percent popular among Americans — tied with the cheeseburger — compared to the hamburger (85 percent) and fries and grilled cheese (each 84 percent).

According to the National Day Calendar site, there is no known origin for National Fried Chicken Day, and the National Today site offers no explanation either.
