Happy 4th of July from DTS!

By Chris Norseth

Whether the Declaration of Independence was actually signed on July 2, 1776, or August 2, 1776, as some believe, our nation officially celebrates our independence from Great Britain on July 4. This year’s Fourth of July falls on a Thursday. Many of us will celebrate with family, friends, fireworks, and of course, food.

As you prepare for your barbecue—whether you’re enjoying hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken, potato salad, or baked beans—have you thought about where all of these products originate? It’s safe to say that every item at your annual celebration was transported by truck to your local store just so you can load your plate this July Fourth. Check out this infographic filled with fun facts and food.
