If you’ve got a craving for all things deep-fried, National Onion Ring Day is the holiday for you!
On June 22, the nation celebrates the irresistible deliciousness of onion rings—often by eating as many of them as possible. It’s unclear when onion rings were first developed, but an onion ring-like recipe appeared in an 1802 cookbook, and another surfaced in a New York newspaper in 1910.
However onion rings first came to be — and however you prefer yours prepared — they’re now a beloved snack across the U.S., the U.K., Canada and other corners of the world. They’ve also inspired countless spin-off snacks, like blooming onions and Funyun chips.
So no matter how you like them, grab a fried onion snack for National Onion Rings Day!
